Nathan Schroeder, 37, was born and raised in Warba, Minnesota. He graduated from Mesabi Range Community and Technical College in 1999 as a maintenance mechanic. He has worked as a millwright in Local 1348 for the last 15 years. Nathan was introduced to mushing at the age of 12, when he was given a ride behind a team of malamutes. He has raced numerous races in the “lower 48.” He says, “Since the beginning (12 years of age), I’ve always dreamed of racing the Iditarod! Now, at 37, I have one Iditarod finish that came with the Rookie of the Year award!” Nathan has been married seven years to Carey, and they are the parents of three: Gavin, 5, Sawyer, 2 and Kinley, 1. He says that Carey barrel races during the summer, and he does dog races in the winter and, in the meantime, they are “happy raising children.”
