At around noon there was a ceremony for the 2 runners that finished yesterday.Sri Chinmoy came and a special Victory song was sung. For the last 2 weeks Stutisheel’s wife has been trying to encourage me to cook something for an afternoon snack.This morning while I was working I had an inspiration. This afternoon I made a kind of Baba GanoushÂ with Eggplant, Zucchini, peppers and Tomato’s, lightly cooked in Olive oil and a little Tamari. I wasn’t sure if the runners would want to eat it, but I made enough for the handlers and crew. A few of the runners declined but those that took really liked it. It was something a little different and I wanted the runners left behind to feel that they had not been forgotten. My experience with running multi days inspired me to make something I would like to eat.
