He continued on to the mythical 5000 km split(50+11:14:35), whereby he rested his tired legs. The gang of four moved on, hopeful of their eventual finishes.

Namitabha the Great! CONGRATULATIONS!......CONGRATULATIONS! ............CONGRATU-U-U-LATIONS!
Congratulations on the conclusion of your epic journey. Meaningful words fail me. The mind struggles to come to terms with the enormity of all your achievements. Numbers and distances almost seem superficial. Beyond the outer achievements the whole experience touches a deeper part of your being. As Andreas, Trishul, Suprabha, Abichal and Matt draw closer to the outer goal we will all be left with a myriad of thoughts, ideas, emotions and experiences of these last seven weeks.

Hi Suprabha!!Less than 400 miles to go!! I hope you're having a great race -I've thought of you often this summer running all those laps day after day, it's very useful inspiration if I'm feeling tired at the end of a "long" run!! We've just seen a great photo of you and Savita on the web site , you both looked very cheerful! Good luck for the last "few" miles, I'm sure you are still smiling and making running 3100 miles look far easier than I'm sure it is.
In total awe of your tremendous capacity!
Shyamala (and Dhavala too!)
