Day 32 They paved 84th Avenue today, so the elite eleven were careful traversing along side the slightly winding road, fumes and heat emanating for a few hours until the asphalt set, the swirling breezes cooling the black creature new to the race straighaway. Rain stayed away and left the region as the runners continued on. The top three men continued their assault on personal and race records, the ladies moved along well and the rest managed illness and kept moving. Vasu Duzhiy ran over 70 miles for the ninth time in the last eleven days. He looks strong and fit. Galya Balatskyy continued the streak at 32 straight days above the 70 mile mark. Surasa Mairer ran 64.2 miles to increase her average to about 100 km. Last but not least, the 'Flying Finn' Ashprihanal Aalto topped them all with 75.73 miles. A few days of lower humidity and cool evenings should help everyone add to their totals. See you in a few miles...
