A warm day, replete with hot sun and rising humidity, could not repel the band of ten runners from completing their laps. Vasu Duzhiy wiggled between the 90º heat and layers of corn starch all over his exposed skin to reach 66.40 miles. He was watched closely by Kaneenika Janakova, who nearly matched Vasu with her own 65.30 miles. She pulled clear of Nirbhasa Magee this evening for second place overall, heading towards an historic finish on saturday evening if all goes well. Harita Davies and Yolanda Holder padded their total laps with very good days of 111 and 115 laps, respectively. One full week left, the race is ending fast, so run if you can, walk like no other, or savor every moment.
