Racing around the globe on the road to Brazil

The past month has taken the Olympic chase all over the globe. At the end of March, shortly after the last time I checked in, I boarded a flight in Seattle, my bags checked to Buenos Aires. That started what has now been a month on the road; four weekends of racing on three different continents; two trips back and fourth across the equator, and another over the international date line; Argentina, L.A., Monterey, Calif., and Australia.
