Whelp, the final workout is complete and my bags are packed. Five months of training has led to the events commencing this weekend. My flight leaves at 5:45 am from Denver and will arrive in Kona at 2:14 pm.
I want to take a moment to say another HUGE THANK YOU to all of you who financially supported me on this journey. I’m on a jet plane tomorrow because of you. Thank you.
And future generations of cancer survivors thank you too!
I realize I have neglected writing blog posts the past few weeks—it’s just been insanely crazy. For those who are interested, please follow me on Twitter and Instagram. I will spit out updates here and there before the race but I’m exciting to announce that
Esther will be live tweeting from my account
during the race. You don’t want to miss that. If you want to follow the live tweeting, you can take note that the gun will fire for my wave at 7:25 am Hawaii-Aleutian Time (UTC-10:00) which is 11:25 am in Colorado (Mountain Daylight Time (UTC-07:00).

I’m honored to be competing for each of you and for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I think I look pretty good in purple, don’t you think? 😉
Love to all,
