Outdoors-Ultrarunning-Grand Slam
In this photo taken on Feb. 9, 2014, Houston Laws tows his recrafted sled across the ice at Mendenhall Lake near Juneau, Alaska, during a training run for the Susitna 100, a 100-mile ski, bike or run event that starts on Saturday, Feb. 15. It will be the first of four 100-mile races Laws hopes to complete in 2014 to achieve an Alaska ultrarunning "Grand Slam." The Alaska grand slam consists of the Susitna, the White Mountains 100, the Sluice Box 100 and the Resurrection Pass Trail 100. (AP Photo/The Juneau Empire, Klas Stolpe)
