What a start to my adventure in China!
My mom, Allison, and Jonah got up extra early to drive me to the airport. Getting up so early surprisingly resulted in some pretty happy kids (I hope they stay awake in school!).


The first leg of the trip was a quick flight to Chicago which will be followed by the trip over the North Pole to China.image

In the next few blog entries, I will highlight they “why” of the trip and will talk about what I’m doing (in a nutshell, treating some of China’s National Track and Field team, giving some track-related lectures). But for now I must end this post with a selfie (to make my daughter Molly proud) and get comfortable in my home for the next 13+ hours!
