You Can´t Always Get What You Want
We thought that we had the sleep schedule figured out after a noisy Monday night. We asked that the music be turned down after 10 p.m. and the race management obliged. The start finish area was very quiet, so Wayne decided he would sleep in the tent. The plan was for three and a half hours of rest. As soon as he started to sleep, about 1 a.m., the support crews across the street decided it was time to party, and the noise ramped up. We had to move to the room, which is further away and up three flights of steps. If I find out where they sleep, I promised to go and make a racket when they try to rest. We will modify the sleep tonight, as we do not want to waste any more time. This morning began well, and Wayne is at twenty-seven laps so far. The total run is one hundred eleven laps, so a marathon is about twenty-two laps. It is another beautiful day, clear and sunny.
