The last slow moving, drenching rain of the race lingered, like clouds on the mountaintop, only to reveal the dreaded hot and humid weather that is summer in our fair city. The seven faithful warriors of the spirit answered all the calls, it is just that they are almost spent, running on fumes, or just plain tired from the previous 48 days. Somehow, a rejuvenated Sopan Tsekov had the best day of the seven with 60.91 miles. He was seen smiling a bit amongst the rain and sunbeams. It does not matter the weather, if you are in a groove. He moved into a virtual tie with Kaneenika Janakova for fifth place. Meanwhile, Ushika Muckenhumer passed the magical 3000 mile barrier, only a mere 100 miles away from completeing his task. Ever grateful, Ushika is on a course for a Monday finish near the lunch hour. Keep tuned for more accurate prognostications. Keep cool, friends.
