Aloha: My Hawaiian Adventure Begins
After much anticipation, I am sitting at Gate C53 at the Pittsburgh Airport. It is 4:31am, and I have two tickets tucked into my carry-on: One to San Francisco, and a second to an airport I simply refer by its 3-letter abbreviation, OGG, because I do not know how to pronounce its real name properly (Kahului).
I am headed for a week of cycling around the beautiful island of Maui to kick off my training for Race Across America 2014. The trip is being organized by Global Ride Productions, one of our sponsors. Tumbl Trak, another Team PH supporter, has graciously sponsored this trip for me.
In addition to cycling, I am meeting with some members from the Hawaii PHA chapter in Honolulu to share the story of our team’s journey wit h them. I feel incredibly blessed and grateful to have this opportunity to travel to Hawaii to train and reach out to PH patients. Stay tuned for reports and photos of my trip!
