When the TSA worker asks me why I’m traveling, I’ll answer, “Service.”

This week I’m packing my bags and heading on my first airplane trip since 1999, before the TSA was created.

To be honest, I’m freaking out.

But this is an opportunity that presented itself because I was open to new things.

It combines my favorite things — helping others, exercise and adventuring.

Luckily, most of my days are planned out — do service work, eat, exercise, deliver fruits of our work’s labor. Then celebrate our accomplishments.

I need that structure in the light of doing something this epic. I’ve never been on the West Coast before. I haven’t traveled without my kids in a long time.

I’ve never done the WOD for Warriors that Team RWB is hosting that weekend.

I’m so ready for this. I’m so scared of this too. I’m also crazy excited as well. Can’t you tell?!
