A quick follow up from the Museum of Aviation Marathon I did last Saturday. After the race I had to quickly make my way back over to the hangar where we picked up our race bibs earlier. Each of us had to give our drivers license to them before we got our bib. This is how they managed to make sure all of us civilians actually left Robins Air Force Base that day. The awards ceremony had already ended, they were putting things away, guys were sweeping the floor… I got my license back and I was starving. They always have a wide arrangement of food for after the race, but as it was a 6 hour time limit and me finishing in 5:56, well there wasn’t much left. Basically it was a box with slices of bread in it. So I grabbed a few slices of bread and we were heading for the door. A man approached us and asked if he could ask us a few questions about the race. He was pretty funny, told me he knew that I was really hungry and that it was okay to continue chewing while answering his questions!
Well come to find out, this man’s name is Michael Pannell and he is a reporter for the paper in Macon:
Thank you Michael!
