Today the runners had to run around the hundreds of people at the northwest end of the course, as the annual handball tournament took place.The moderate heat wave started to leave the area with cloudy skies late in the afternoon, followed by a few raindrops. It almost looked like we escaped the rain until about 10:20pm (22:20), when the clouds opened up, and the earth met the sky. in the meantime, the top five stayed relevent with each over 60 miles. Nirbhasa Magee and Kaneenika Janakova reached 64.2 miles to tie for Day Leader. Yolanda Holder went past 2000 miles for the first time in her career, and again fashioned a 62.01 mile day. She still has a chance to finish, but the burden of mileage and the mathmatics will not allow another sub-par day. Her margin for error is slim. Can she hold her form for 17 more days? Stay tuned.
