    This video is very inspiring and gives an example how you can find happiness in extreme conditions. After watching this video I somehow feel stupid about complaining about my current life. It's sad that comment section is more concerned about 'Canadagoose' than about the true message that this video is trying to convey.

    I think Kristen Knight Pace will feel very sad if it turns out that most comments will be more about animal cruelty than about her struggle, achievements and impact on viewers.

    This is deep.. I can feel it, story 👍👍👍👍 things are always better with dogs

  • Christine Atkinson on January 16, 2020

    Before I thought, this looks interesting. I'm gonna enter the race one day. Til I see exactly the PLIGHT of what those lil puppies go through. And to WIN a Race. NO WAY. I'd rather have a small sled team to do practical things, like go to grocery store on small trecks for practical reasons. Not using any vehicle so as to ruin environment. Weather permitting, because they'd have to be outside sedintary while I was inside shopping (I'd plan my list in advance n make it quick as possible too), so as not to be so uncomfortable for them.

    Did they only run this with 12/16 dogs? That seems like a huge disadvantage
