With much inspiration from a short skit about past great American presidents and philosophers, the group of 12 ran through Fourth of July mirth, firecrackers, bottle rockets, fireworks in the night sky, and a deluge of rain to cap the day. This was ironic, in that not one of the runners is a native of the US, yet their acknowlegement of American philosophical ingenuity and goodness became self evident. Vasu Duzhiy continued his fine run at the top with 69.14 miles, followed closely by Atmavir Petr Spacil with 68.6. The two fine lady athletes Surasa Mairer and Kaneenika Janakova continued their excellence with 64.75 miles each. Not to be outdone on Independence Day, Ananda-Lahari Zuscin blazed to 70.24 miles, including an all-out final lap of less than 3:00 minutes in the pouring rain.
