She was forced to take a step back from the sport she loves. But now, a Willow musher is making her comeback.
Karin Hendrickson was badly injured when a truck slid off the road and crashed into her team last year. It’s been a long road to recovery, but she’s training for next year’s Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race.
Hendrickson signed up for the race last week. She says the pain from her accident is still with her every day, but sitting out another Iditarod is not in the plans.
