Day 35 Five weeks in, and the field of eleven runners is still moving well. The Top Nine are probably all going to finish, one way or another. A tremendous thunderstorm with dangerous lightning and thunder hit the area this morning, dumping over an inch of rain in 15 to 20 minutes. No problem. Just get out the rain jacket or heavy duty umbrella and carry on. The Nine all made it past 60, as the mercury had trouble matching the steady rise of the humidity index. Ashprihasnsl Aalto led the charge with 75.73 miles, giving him an unreal average of 76.66 miles per day(123.37 km). Galya Balatskyy made the ridiculous sublime with 35 straight days over 70 miles. He even picked it up late in the evening to test his high gears. Vasu Duzhiy ran 71.89 to solidify his hold on the podium. Fourth place Yuri Trostenyuk reached 69.14 miles, his best day in nearly three weeks. Atmavir Spacil looked really good late with fast paced laps and a total of 72.44 miles. Surasa Mairer leads the ladies with another strong 63 mile day. A mini warm spell starts sunday. Lets see if it has any affect on the "Elite Eleven". Stay tuned.
