Today was typical Salzburg weather, a little rain here and there. Luckily  it was not too cold.

Ushika had a great last day. Friends cheered him and ran with him a few laps.

He finished around 5:30 pm. Because it was already dark we had a beautiful magical finish with the help of fireworks.The program was a replica of Andrea’s program. Ushika wished for a different cake, which is called Kardinal-Schnitte, a very creamy white cake, which was decorated in the colours of the Austrian flag. After a few of Sri Chinmoy’s songs the Austrian hymn was sung. Smarana gave a little speech about Ushika and his performance. Ushika gave a speech and thanked everybody, including first and foremost our Beloved Guru Sri Chinmoy! All the other runners congratulated him wholeheartedly. Andrea too, he is still here.Ushika improved his former finish time by 19 hours. Congratulations!!! His new personal best (from today on):  49 days 11 hours and 27 minutes

Nirbhasa reached 3000 miles shortly after Ushika’s finish and was very happy about this. Now he really sees an end coming…..

Nirbhasa and Milan closed the day with the same mileage, 89,7 km. Two first places today. I think for the first time in the whole Race.

Ananda-Lahari moved on with devoted surrender and reached 82,4 km at midnight.

Ushika Muckenhumer finished the Sri Chinmoy Self-Transcendence 3100 Mile Race today in a personal best that was 20 hours and six minutes faster than his time from 2018. He averaged 100.852 km / 62.666 miles per day.  This is his second podium finish in the three years of running the longest race. He went over 60 miles per day in 36 of the last 38 days, erasing a small deficit and finishing a day earlier. His body has been transformed into a running machine, thanks to his dedication and surrender to the moment, not to mention his faith in the Higher power, and his grateful demeanor. What a warrior. Congratulations Ushika.

Nirbhasa Magee went through the 3000 mile split for the fourth time in his multi-day career, and is poised to finish well before the end of the Race on Tuesday. Milan Javornicky and Ananda-Lahari will continue until asked to stop.
