Video: Aaron Burmeister second into Koyuk

Musher Aaron Burmeister talks about his 15-hour run breaking trail through a snowstorm on the Norton Sound coast after he arrived in the Iditarod checkpoint in Koyuk on Monday, just minutes behind defending champion Dallas Seavey.

Burmeister was still resting at the checkpoint by the time Seavey pulled out shortly before 5 p.m., and will have some catching up to do if he still hopes to take the title from Seavey.

He spoke with Alaska Dispatch News shortly after arriving.
