Today was a bit hotter than yesterday and the ice and fluids were out in full force. The 3100 mile race is so long (52 days) that the weather varies quite a bit from beginning to end. Also many birthdays are celebrated here, expecially in July. Today was Atmavir's birthday and he has celebrated his birthday on the run many times. This time we got it on video as we see a group of people sing two special birthday songs as Atmavir holds his special customized ice cream fresh fruit cake created by our great chefs in the kitchen. It was also Namrata's birthday, one of our regular and reliable counters. Without their dedicated service we could not keep track of the thousands of laps run by all the runners.
