DYK that •The Iditarod is know as the “Last Great Race on Earth.”
•It is a race over 1150 miles of the roughest, most beautiful terrain Mother Nature has to offer.
•It takes place in Alaska with temperatures that reach far below zero, and with winds that can cause a complete loss of visibility.
•The race begins in Wasilla, Alaska. The race route is alternated every other year, one year going north through Cripple, Ruby and Galena, the next year south through Iditarod, Shageluk, Anvik. It ends in Nome where a hero’s welcome is the custom for racers 1 through 61 who finish.
•The mushers compete for $69,000 and a new truck.
•Each musher can have 16 dogs that they must care for and feed throughout the race.
The race begins on the first Saturday in March, and lasts from 9 to 15 days.

I know that the church shouldn't use the word "Alleluia" during Lent since it is a 40-day concept...that excludes Sundays.

Do you know the history of the Iditarod?

In January 1925, there was a diphtheria epidemic in Nome, and with no modern transportation available, the medicine was transported by dog sled. With dog sled teams stationed along the way, the run, which had never taken less than two weeks in the 50 below zero and lower temperatures, was completed in 6 days. Almost 50 years later, the run was recreated for sport and is the celebrated race we know today.

Yeah, I forgot to mention that Sundays were your "day off" from all those strict rules of the lent.

The Earth is an oblate spheroid. It bulges slightly at the equator and is flattened slightly at the poles. This is caused by the Earth's rotation.

During the "Energy Crisis" in the mid 1970s Michigan decided to be on DST all year, but it caused more problems than it solved. Children had to go to school when it wasn't daylight, and when a couple of children were hit by a car (they were not injured severely) there was an outcry, and DST was repealed.
