    Tomorrow morning (Tuesday), I fly to D.C. I never thought that I would be going to the White House as a guest. I figured it would be as a tourist, walking along the perimeter and taking pictures from a thousand feet away.

    Wednesday, I'm going to be posing for a picture while shaking hands with the President in the White House.

    Everyone keeps asking me if I'm excited to go to the White House. Of course I am!

    Others have asked me to say a few words about the health care system.

    Mmmm, if only being an Olympic medalist gave me special powers. I don't know what to expect, but I want to take in every moment while I can.

    Erin Pac, a bronze medal winner in the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver, is writing about her trip to the White House for NBC Connecticut.
