# poj 3613Cow Relays

`DescriptionFor their physical fitness program, N (2 ≤ N ≤ 1,000,000) cows have decided to run a relay race using the T (2 ≤ T ≤ 100) cow trails throughout the pasture.Each trail connects two different intersections (1 ≤ I1i ≤ 1,000; 1 ≤ I2i ≤ 1,000), each of which is the termination for at least two trails. The cows know the lengthi of each trail (1 ≤ lengthi  ≤ 1,000), the two intersections the trail connects, and they know that no two intersections are directly connected by two different trails. The trails form a structure known mathematically as a graph.To run the relay, the N cows position themselves at various intersections (some intersections might have more than one cow). They must position themselves properly so that they can hand off the baton cow-by-cow and end up at the proper finishing place.Write a program to help position the cows. Find the shortest path that connects the starting intersection (S) and the ending intersection (E) and traverses exactly N cow trails.Input* Line 1: Four space-separated integers: N, T, S, and E* Lines 2..T+1: Line i+1 describes trail i with three space-separated integers: lengthi , I1i , and I2iOutput* Line 1: A single integer that is the shortest distance from intersection S to intersection E that traverses exactly N cow trails.Sample Input2 6 6 411 4 64 4 88 4 96 6 82 6 93 8 9Sample Output10SourceUSACO 2007 November Gold`
