Daylight finally rolled around and I could not contain my excitement to run outside in the Hawaiian air and swim later that day after moving to the King Kamehameha hotel for the subsequent nights. My friends Mickey and Ryan Witte helped transport me and my baggage to the new hotel and accompanied me on a wonderful swim, full of sea turtle sightings and colorful fish! We then proceeded to spend the rest of the afternoon at the expo in the hot sun with dearth amounts of fluids-a poor life decision when you have a race in a few days! That night I attended the Wattie Ink Happy Hour, thanks to Tina and Peter. They introduced me to the likes of Heather Jackson and Wattie himself!! I tried to hide my emotions but I was about to burst with excitement from meeting one of my role models, HJ (2nd at 2012 70.3 World Championships just a few weeks ago)!
