The last day in Oklahoma.
Today we welcome 2 new members in the organizing team: Karinne and Serge, from Betton, near Rennes.
They have come to reinforce our small team for 3 weeks, the length of their vacation.
Yesterday we found Route 66 again and followed it for a good part of the day.
We were even on some of the original sections.
The itinerary had frequent changes of direction and top vigilance was required, even though I reminded everyone at our morning meeting.
Serge ran past the 2nd intersection of the day.
It’s the kind of mistake that always puts you in a bad mood.
On one hand the extra kilometers you run don’t count and on the other the time lost is not deducted and counts in the total time of the race.
So you risk not making the cut-off time.
But Serge has found his normal pace and arrives within the time limit.
End of story; I hope it will serve as a lesson.
The race rules state that the runners must carry with them: a turn-sheet, a supply of water, money and their bib.
Sometimes one of these items is forgotten and even if they are not essential, I have to ensure that the rules are followed because apparently it is the job of the Race Director.
So I am not always easy to deal with, even though I realize I have to be flexible.
One point on which I am inflexible and uncompromising is security, especially because we are entering Missouri and the roads in this state have no shoulders.
The day was hot and humid, just like yesterday and no doubt like tomorrow!
