WILLOW, Alaska — Veteran musher DeeDee Jonrowe was dressed in her signature hot pink parka trimmed with wolverine and wolf fur on Sunday as she crossed the start line in the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race and pointed her dog team toward Nome.

The restart was held in the town of Willow, north of Anchorage, where 62 teams took off on the Iditarod Trail across a frozen lake marking the competitive portion of the 1,150-mile race.

Race officials have described this year's Iditarod field as especially competitive, consisting of nine of the top 10 teams. Four-time Iditarod champion Jeff King retired after last year's race when he finished third.
