Our plane is washed and waxed thanks to our flight line, so a big thanks to them too!! Nicole and I are all packed and ready to take K-State 10 during our race. Wish us luck, strong tailwinds, and blue skies. We will keep everyone updated about our race as much as we can. The race begins Tuesday the 21st and we couldn't be more excited. Get ready for an awesome 10 days.
