Iditarod Mushers Try Out Pee Pants
When I worked on air in Anchorage in the 80’s, I became interested in the Iditarod Sled Dog Race.
The annual thousand mile race began last Sunday and takes over a week to complete. I found this
video of one of the mushers showing her path thru gorgeous country. Dr. Christine Roalofs is
also trying out special pants that allow her to race without stopping for bathroom breaks.
Pee Pants are a mix of bicycle shorts, funnel and a tube that pokes out next to the musher’s
boot. Roalofs says she’s happy to try anything that helps her drink more water and stop
less at freezing temperatures.
