With cooler temperatures throughout the day, and an anticipated rain storm arriving at darkness, the nine remaining runners made hay. Seven of nine made it past 60 miles, with the unstoppable Vasu Duzhiy continuing his quest for three straight wins. He totaled 67.5 miles before midnight, and the coastal storm continued to rain and blow from the southeast. Five weeks have been concluded, and Vasu has fashioned a 61-mile lead, nearly a solid day of running. Kobi still was able to finish running before 21:00 hours, and head for home. Vasu will probably reach 4000km late Sunday evening, his task approaching 80% complete. Everyone else is dreaming of the beach, a multi-room spa, or a break from running short loops. In 2 and a half weeks, their most impressive, dedicated efforts will reach their apex for 2018. We may have as many as six finishers this year. Stay tuned.
