With the difficult past day of running behind, the somewhat rejuvenated band of ten made some good noise today. Vasu Duzhiy increased his lead to nearly 85 miles with a solid 67. 5 miles. Late in the evening Vasu reached 2000 miles for the sixth time in his career. Women's leader Kaneenika Janakova reached 65.3 miles to extend her women's lead. Next woman Harita Davies reached 62.0144, her best day since Day 1, and in the process took back two precious miles to move within eight of level. Third woman, the walker Yolanda Holder followed a sub par day with a fabulous 68.05 miles of fast walking, taking back over eight miles of treasure lost the day before. She still has a chance to get to level, since 22 days remain. Her focus and skill are amazing to watch. She would have been the Day Leader by one lap if not for the forgotten man- Ananda-Lahari Zuscin. This gentle soul ripped off five minute laps for hours and hours. As the sun set he was still moving comfortably, and quick as ever. A few minutes after 11:00 pm (23:00), he stopped, having conquered 147 laps- 80.6736 miles (129.832km). These athletes, after so many days and laps are still putting up numbers!
So it goes at the race that keeps on surprising.
