Rt66 Quarter Marathon


The 2010 Route 66 “Quarter Marathon” Run was held on August 7th, 2010 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. It started at 7:30 am in the Blue Dome District of downtown at 2nd and Elgin.

The two things I liked most about the Route 66 Quarter Marathon 2010 were the rain and the “Theme from Rocky.”

We experienced a light rain to cool us off during the sweltering heat of August. The temperature high for the day was 95 degrees with 75% humidity. At 7 am the temperature was already 80 degrees and 74% humidity, so the drizzle of wet sprinkles was a welcome comfort.

As we were nearing the finish line in the Blue Dome District, we crossed an arched bridge. We ran to the tune of the “Theme from Rocky.” When I arrived at the top of the bridge, I threw up my arms and yelled, “Yo Adrian, I made it.” It was a great feeling and so appropriate.

The event had 1,968 finishers. Read more from this Tulsa World article at http://www.tulsaworld.com/sportsextra/article.aspx?subjectid=29&articleid=20100808_29_B8_ScottM436807
