From time to time I would like to tell of some of the people I have met . Here is one!
working on the telephone system ( at Night) at the Marine base in 29
Palms, CA. A coworker and I Had the day off so we were sitting at the
bar at the 29 Palm Inn bout 3 pm and in walks this couple he was dressed
normal and she had on "running" gear.
BTW everything was done in the
bar eat, drink and renting rooms...any how this couple asked if they
could rent a room for a few hours at a reduced rate. The bartender my
friend and all glanced at each other knowingly, but that was not the
case. She was and did run from the Pacific (LA)to the Atlantic (NY).
They wanted to shower and rest during the heat of the day and then when
cooler run again as 29 Palms is in the desert.
The bartender didn't have
the authority so I let them use mine for the afternoon....we gave them
drinks (iced tea) and bought them dinner before the began the days
I ran with her about 4 miles that night we then hugged and said our
goodbys...and that was that...about 6 months later I got a post card from her
from New York she had completed her quest ran some 3900 miles...tears came
to my eyes.....
