Day 1 Update

Nearly After 28 hours of travel I made it to the Gran Hotel Provincial in Mar del Plata last night. 1 hour lay over in Atlanta followed by 10 hours in the air to Buenos Aires was Relatively smooth. We had to wait 3.5 hours in the airport but for others to arrive Other than that things went smoothly through customs. Then we had a 450km bus ride That Took us 7.5 hours and included us getting lost and stuck in the middle of a road. But we made it, and today was registration and the opening ceremonies. I was Asked by my teammates to carry the flag for Team USA and was honored to do so. Tomorrow is the first event, the 5K run. Information is quite slow down here from the organizing Officials, Often arriving just in time to make us scramble. Looking forward to seeing the competition start tomorrow.

It will be a quick week, 6 days, sandwiched between long plane flights on either side.  I am excited to be around other survivors, to meet others who have are survivors.  It is also a chance to honor my father, to do as he would have wanted me to do, and not waste an opportunity.  I will post updates daily with pictures to share this experience.
