Well done, only two more days to go, that means you've already improved your personal best running time by 800%. Everyone at the center is cheering you on and Oliver said ,"Where's New York?". I hope your having fun, with Jack and Grandma and 3-4 miles of bitumen.
Dad also asked about you and sends his love and congratulations. He's quite proud of you and will be bringing Nanna 1 and Poppy down for a couple of days next Thursday and Friday.
Ann's very happy and proud to have gotten 100% in her last test and knows that one day you too can aspire to such heights but for now she says keep running and just do your best.
See you in a few days,
Love Stewart, Ann and Oliver.
Here is one Virtual Fork for you:

To all the runners!
Hi, you all are doing great. I would like to enjoy you!! I am hanging here in the office and I am very tired, because I am sick. You are really lucky, that you are able to run. Now you have almost reached the goal. I wish you all the best - I think of you and pray for you!

An alle Ã¶sterreichischen, deutschen und Schweizer LÃ¤ufer!
Dorothea, Ingrid, Sigrid, .... Reinald, Gerhard, Uwe, Klaus .... sorry, ich weiÃ nicht alle Namen - aber ihr seid in meinem Gebet eingeschlossen.
Hi, ihr seid groÃartig - weiter so! Ich drÃ¼cke euch alle Daumen und die Zehen noch dazu! Wenn ich das so lese, beneide ich euch fast. Ich hÃ¤nge hier im BÃ¼ro herum und bin leicht angeschlagen (etwas grippig). Deshalb kann ich jetzt am Wochenende auch den 24-Stunden-Lauf in Basel nicht laufen. Das ist schon komisch, ich wÃ¤re wirklich gerne gelaufen! Aber was soll's, ich muss zuerst wieder zu KrÃ¤ften kommen.
Alles, alles Liebe
Hi Dorothea, Frederike and Christopher, Tamas
we here in Swizzerland admire you and your tremendous run beyond expression... just keep going, enjoy and keep smiling.... only one more day... we are so proud of you !!!
Tomorrow starts the Basel 12/24 h run and we are nearly finished with all the preparations and loking foreward to serve the runners and the event....

From your brothers and sisters in Basle, ZÃ¼rich and Geneva
To all other Runners and Helpers out there:
I hope everybody is doing well and is happy as far....doing these races is a great opportunity and challenge.... I am admiring every single person doing this and get tremendous inspiration from you.

To my brother Dragan, Keep on good work. I am so amazed with your results. I hope everything will work as you planed. I am watching for your every step out there. Saw your picture too.
GO-GO-GO-GO-GO-GO-GO-GO-GO-GO DRAGAN!!!!!!!!!!!!! your brother MIMO
I've been watching your great effort on the website every day. Amazing. I've very proud of you. I know you are both taking care of your body and also giving your best effort. (Boy, I sound like a parent, don't I? I wonder why....) I also saw your picture in the photo gallery. Looking good! Way to go, Lucian!
Just a note to let you know that we are all incredibly proud of you here in SA. Salil took a great photo of you (on the front page of today's photos). You look so strong especially considering that you have been running for 3 days already! I had a thought which may appeal to you - whenever you need an extra boost just imagine a lion coming out of the undergrowth from behind......
Keep up the good work all of you runners. Your brave efforts are all proving something crucial to all of us - If we have courage and strive to succeed without giving up there is no limit to what we can achieve.
Thank you to you all.
Abhijatri - in South Africa.
drzim Ti palce s celou rodinou, jedes jak pila jsme na Tebe hrdi, ale neprehanej to, mas tady jeste praci. Ses dobrej, ctime Te. Drz se.

Hallo Gerhard and Magdalena!
We are keeping track of your results and your Vienna brothers and sisters are proud of you.
It is so nice to see the pictures and results from your running and it feels like we are running.
Enjoy the last days of your race.
Nice to see your pictures from the race and I am sure you are having a good time and a good training for the big one.
Greetings also to Rainald, Uwe, Martin Mario, Tzvetan...
We were all very suprised and delighted to see you take part in the 6 day race and now it looks like you are doing really well.
Tristan, Warren and Prashphutita all send their greeting and prayers for your success.
We will be keeping track of you progress over the last 2 days.
Go Karina! Your friends in Canberra think you're, like, real neat. You are now officially TOTALLY INSPIRING! But make sure you come back when you've finished. (We miss your witty repartee... and your cakes.)
- Everyone in the whole Canberra Sri Chinmoy Centre. (Well, maybe not
EVERYONE... but we're sure they all agree with the sentiments.)
Sunny greetings from Austria.
How I would like to join you runners in this multiday event.
It is always a very special experience to be in this ultra event and this time there are so many runners to share it with.
I was thinking of a joke but nothing came to my mind but here are a few poems.
God wants me to think of
The transcendental goal
And not of the distance.
Never stop, never!
Carry on with your dedication life.
Destined is your goal.
In my hours of need,
I see my Lord here, there
When you carry
The fragrence of love with you,
You run the fastest
Towards your destination.
I hope I ´ll see you in NY in summer,
also greetings to Kareen

Lucian -- been thinking about you out there these past few days. While I've been sitting around, you've been RUNNING . . . the WHOLE TIME!!! Heard you are doing great - strong and steady (saw some photos of you, too!!) Keep it going! Keep running. Keep running from your heart. GO LUCIAN!!
Bravely march forward
Sleeplessly climb upward
Breathlessly dive inward

Hey F....wie FRIEDE!
Wir hoffen das es Dir gut geht, dass du schÃ¶n vorankommst...wir glauben ganz ganz ganz fest an Dich! Du schaffst das schon...DU hast eine Einladung von deinem 'tollen' (Spass) Bruder Mathias bekommen, zu seinem 50. Geburtstag. Is am 3. Juli. und wir alle werden nicht in NÃ¼rnberg erscheinen....du doch auch nicht, oder??? Na ja der Lio Binzo findet es auch schade, dass Ihr leider keine Zeit habt um dort einen Besuch abzustatten! Na ja! SchÃ¶ne, viele, energievolle GrÃ¼sse! Deine beiden 'Dicken' Bea und Belli
P.S: Wir haben Dich lieb....und der Kumbi auch! (Er hat heute seinen Schmusetag *g*)
I have been watching since Day 1 when Trishul has been neck and neck with Ric Marin of RSA. Today Trishul held steady and Ric couldn't match the daily effort. Coo-Well! Trishul is my favorite and a friend too. And special thanks to Kaaren who is Trishuls HUGE support team. Without him, where would he be??? (Behind Ric maybe.)
I admire your great efforts and hope your spiritual journey is enhanced by these tremendous undertakings of time and distance. I wish the weather to be the best for you. I support you all from Minnesota. The Sri Chinmoy folks support of these races is tremendous and they deserve the utmost appreciation for how they take care of these runners and how they support them not only physically but emotionally and spiritually. God bless you all!!
I hope to join you in the fall series.
Way to go Don; I am watching from Minnesota and so is our mutual friend Ed Rousseau. Best of luck and may the wind be at your back.
Peace and love.
Gregor; I remember fondly our last hours of the 6 day race a few years back when we battled for the finish line.
Thanks for the memories and I wish you the best in this race. You are doing well. Steady is the game.
You are doing something I wish I could do right now but I am doing my job instead. You are a lucky man to be a part of this great event. Best of luck - you are a model of consistency.
Way to go Dave. It is good to see you competing. Your twins and wife may be with you for support I hope, and to have fun with when you take a break. I hope the four of you are having a good time. I wish you good running and no injuries. Enjoy. I wish I could join you but I am at work watching on the internet.
Hey Lucian and Standa,
Excellent job so far boys! Keep it up!
We are all proud of you here in San Diego.
Hey B -
You go, guy! Great results!! Cool beans! Hang in there....we're keeping track of you and cheering daily.... Log in every day to check results. Take care of yourself... Hope the weather is cooperating... keep up the good work.... know you've got a cheering section! :)
Best from Jakarta!
