5:45 and counting. Hot inside the GRB, mild outside. Drizzling.
Joel freaking Nana Kontchou! For those who don’t what am I talking about let me rewind to May of 1997, when then quite high GeoQuest manager took for a summer internship for the MSc in geophysics at the IFP school. He gave my first taste of the oil industry, of performance bonuses and he arranged for me to go to Libya when I was hired on January 1998. A very expansive person.
So why am I talking about Joel? Because today I was doing my favorite chevron marathon activity, handing out tshirts, and who comes to the table picking up his? If you guessed Joel Nana Kontchou you are right! He just landed the day before from Congo, ready to run a marathon on Sunday and fly back on Monday to Congo.
13 years and Joel hasn’t changed a bit.
So, who is the next one to come to Houston to run the Marathon? Remember, I only hand out t-shirts on Fridays ;)
