Heidi Sutter is a native of Wiscasset but, when she went to Alaska for college, she fell in love with it and stayed! Now, she's in the race of a lifetime...the nearly 1,000 mile Iditarod dog sled race!

Channel 6 talked with her via Facetime before the race, which began in Fairbanks instead of Anchorage this year because of too little snow!

Good luck Heidi! You can foll her by clicking here. She's bib #76.
