Looking Good at 24 miles!
The corn was much taller than previous years at this drop. I am a couple of weeks later than usual. There are 36 that are doing well and another 2-3 that are struggling. I was worried I'd be able to get done with training but it looks really good. If the weather does ok - I'll be at 42 miles by Friday - an entire week before shipping for the first race. I hope to get them out 64 miles before that (and maybe one drop at 82 miles if we're really lucky (and I'm not too sleepy)).
I finally remembered to turn on my camera before releasing! :-)
