Saki is ready to go as Iditarod musher Michelle Phillips of Tagish, Yukon, takes her dogs out for a run on Friday, Feb. 28, 2014, at Tozier Track in Anchorage, Alaska. "We're just doing a little stretching-out run," she said. "They've been in the truck a long time." Several mushers visited the track Friday in preparation for Saturday's ceremonial start of the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race.
