The runners of the 3100 Mile race are a little cautious about heat. New York heat can stiffle your effort, fry your brain, drain your muscles, deplete your sodium content and make you wish you were in the Catskills, or even further north. Today was a test of wit and use of all the tools at your fingertips. Everyone moved along nicely, as the mercury rose above 90ºF, and the humidity started to climb. Ice was frequent, heat guard tablets and Himalayan salt and mint coolers were at hand, fruits of all sorts were available,and generous donors brought all sorts of ice cream. Ashprihanal Aalto, the wily Fin, had been fighting a chest cold for over three days, yet wound up with Day leader laurels, the result of 65.85 miles of guarded, yet spirited effort. Kaneenika Janakova led the ladies with 64.20 miles. Two men went past 2000 km, and three more passed the 1000 mile mark. Temperatures should be a little less hot for the next several days, but you never know in the Big Apple.
