You’ll be amazed by what you can do when you’re called upon.
That’s what DeeDee Jonrowe says about competing in her 27th Iditarod, the 1,150-mile dog-sled race across Alaska, after surviving breast cancer and a car accident that critically injured her and her husband.
Here’s what else she learned about life while sledding across Alaska:
• Set goals for yourself that aren’t easily reached. Rising to a challenge, she says, gave her a feeling of self-esteem.
• Be dreadfully honest with yourself about your likes and dislikes. Are you doing what you love? Jonrowe says she used to work outdoors for the state of Alaska, but was promoted to managing the people who were doing what she wanted to do.
“My heart wasn’t in it,” she says. “The job paid well, and I would’ve retired by now, but my soul wasn’t there.”
Spending 10 days straight in nature, on the other hand, inspires her.
