Iditarod and Cellular Memory

Dallas Seavey, age 25, a third-generation musher, just won the 2012 Iditarod, the nearly 1,000 mile Northern-route race from Anchorage to Nome. Congratulations! In addition to dedicated practice and a keen understanding of his team, perhaps some cellular memory helped Dallas win. His father was the 2004 Iditarod champion, while his grandfather reportedly started the Iditarod 40 years ago. When Dallas took the podium, two of his lead huskies were there with him. Previously, in 2005, Dallas had achieved his best time ever and had become the youngest musher to ever run the Iditarod.
