While you were "sick" the day after the Super Bowl or taking a snow day after that five inches of snow we got, a nice lady from Michigan named Laura Neese was trying to figure out how she was going to get her dog-sled down a snowy mountain, in the middle of Nowhere, Alaska.

Laura and her team of sled dogs are competing in the 1,000 mile long Yukon Quest. According to MLive.com, the team is owned by Nature's Kennel, from McMillan, MI - in the U.P., where Laura also works.

Here's their story.

You can follow her progress at NaturesKennel.com, or the Yukon Quest Facebook page:
