Tri Challenge in Hawaii: Ready to rock

 Next week, the CNN Fit Nation Triathlon team heads to Kona, Hawaii, for a week of intense training? Follow along on The Chart and on Twitter, @CNNFitNation

It's 9:09 p.m.  Island Time,  2:10 a.m. Kansas City time. I've been up since 6:30 a.m .and have flown several hours but it's all worth it. I'm exhausted but so ecstatic to see my fellow 6-packers and the amazing CNN staff and to see all the new stuff we've received. I've never been so awestruck in my life. Touching down in Kona and seeing nothing but lava fields and ocean is indescribable. This place is gorgeous and I'm so honored and happy to be a part of the CNN Fit Nation Triathlon Challenge with Dr. Gupta. I cant wait for my 6 a.m. swim in the ocean! This is going to rock!!!!!!!! Let the training begin!
