Howard Beach the marathon Course Director looked up from his own desk. “Have we heard visa complaints again this year, or are people just not interested?”

Joe Stellacadente’s eyes didn’t move from the names on his laptop’s screen. “Don’t know, but either way looks like we’re gonna have a few lucky locals again.” The expression beneath the Operations Director’s eyes went from bemused to concerned. “How many Middle Eastern men typically sign up?”

Beach raised his brows over a smirk. “Running a marathon isn’t quite like taking jumbo jet flying lessons, Joe.”

“Looks like one of them will be flying,” Joe replied. The eyes broke away from the screen. “We need to make a decision about additional entries. When does Sarah get back with lunch?”
