It was hot today, with temps in the nineties, the humidity sticky, the sun blazing. The runners moved along, aware of the obstacles. Kaneenika Janakova prevailed overall again, a fine 65.3 miles giving her Day Leader status. She also slipped past 2000 miles for the third time in her career. Nirbhasa Magee went past 2000 miles for the second time, this time a full two days earlier than his effort in 2015. The two rookies Harita Davies and Yolanda Holder maintained par and a lap better, respectively, to keep the plan for reaching the goal in play. Much has yet to be decided in this 52-day race of 3100 miles. The heat continues for another day or two before relief arrives. Chapter 33 starts tomorrow.
