Day 30: Wipe Your Brow Kind of Day
The weather was hot and humid; the challenge was plain and simple. Get the most laps in the cooler parts of the day; survive the heat without incident. Even the seasoned veterans of this race know the fine line between efficient and foolhardy. Yet, Ananda-Lahari Zuscin defied all logic, running 69.7 miles before going home early to soak his tired body. He was one of six to push past 60 miles. Vasu Duzhiy increased his lead to over 51 miles ahead of Kobi Oren whilst running 68.6 miles. Kobi passed the 2000-mile mark, becoming the first Israeli to ever do so. Ushika Muckenhumer continued to attack for third place, trailing Sopan Tsekov by only 8 laps.
22 days remain. We shall see what happens to these intrepid runners. Tomorrow's challenge- a series of thunderstorms.
Kobi Oren-2000 miles- 29:07:18:21- PB, NR; becomes tenth fastest man to run 2000 miles.
