It might have been the celebrations and fireworks from the Fourth of July, or the copius amounts of food consumed all day, but the runners had a tough day today, in terms of overall mileage. Shin splints and sore muscles affected a few, or just plain cabin fever made runners and helpers a little jumpy today. Vasu Duzhiy, as expected, put up 68 miles to lead all competitors- no distractions could stop him. However, only four people made it past 60 miles. Kaneenika Janakova again shined with 64.7 miles for second best overall total. Yolanda Holder recorded her 11th straight day with at least the minimum required total to finish. Nirbhasa Magee and Smarana Puntigam has identical 63.6 mile days. And crowd favorite Andrey Andreev reached 1000 miles for the first time in his running career.
