Six weeks have ended since the start of the 3100 Mile Race. Vasu Duzhiy needs just under 332 miles to finish, most likely late thursday evening. He has had a very solid race, considering serious back issues bothered him eight months ago from an accident that was work related. He is a foreman in a logging company. When he does finish, it will be his second best performance in the longest race, and daresay, one of his most rewarding. He has led from Day 1. His comrades in running shoes are also thinking of the end game of this journey. Nirbhasa Magee is over two days ahead of his previous best, so his effort must be giving him much joy. Kaneenika Janakova is still in command of the ladies battalion. She has climbed to within six miles of second place overall, and is poised for a fantastic ending next weekend. Harita Davies has been a model of consistency for all the race; her learning curve has been trending upward with every step. She is ten days away from the promised land of running. Yolanda Holder has defied the odds by just being in the race as the first and only walker to attempt the 3100. Her strategy now has been bolstered by another fine performance today, leading the ladies with 65.31 miles. If she is able to avoid a bad day in the remaining ten, she will reach her remarkable goal. The remaining five runners will continue on, that is their nature- to never give up. Miles can be attained, progress can be made, joy can be discovered, even in the midst of the reality ahead. Because they are pioneers of the new dawn of human potential and self-discovery, the runner's human experiment of body and soul continues.
