My name is Kelsey Beaber, and I am a 15-year-old girl from Wisconsin. We started training 39 race dogs this year. My dad got me into sled dogs, and we bought a property just to have a great training area and be able to have and train dogs any time we want. Beargrease is one of my favorite races of the year. Mushers are some of my favorite people to be around and have changed our lives in so many ways. I just like being out on the trail with all the people we know and love. My family and friends love the Beargrease too because of the live trackers and all the coverage. All my high school friends follow my race and stay up all night long to see how we are doing. I also play flute in our high school band and am a sprinter on the track team.
