Dispatches from race directors Sahishnu Szcsesiul and Rupantar LaRusso.
The heat and humidity, coupled with showers for much of the afternoon and evening, were the latest challenge to our group of nine runners. There was relief and release, as the second heat wave was washed away from memory, if not from their fatiqued, tired bodies. The surprise Day leader was Ushika Muckenhumer, his 63.11 miles were an inevitable mix of talent, fitness, determination and adaptation.
He is only four laps (2 miles) behind third place man Sopan Tsekov, he also, of the determined, fit, adapted running group who are up to the challenge. Vasu Duzhiy still holds the lead over Kobi Oren, and with only 956 miles to cover, seems destined to reach the finish line first. Some good weather ahead should bolster confidence, or at least wear out those boxes of shoes, waiting to be trashed on the hard, unforgiving running surface. The longest race has only three weeks to completion. We all hope they are the best.
