Day 17


Archived – click Post Title to view all. TODAY I have passed 1000 miles. As Sahishnu likes to write in his news: it’s the 6th time in my running career. 16 days and 12 hours. It is 3 hours faster than last year. I am on the 8th place. Yesterday night Volodya ran his first 1000 miles in his life. He was as happy as a child. Frankly speaking, it’s even difficult to believe that we have already been running for 17 days. It seems that only yesterday we came to New York, only yesterday we went to Manhattan to buy lacking sport things. And, look, 17 days have passed by… Ashprihanal moves forward amazingly fast. He is up for something, that’s for sure. And Grahak as well… We  found out that he did not like the race very much and he wanted to be done with it.  Probably, he plans something, too. He  is covering huge mileage… All our runners are moving very well. I feel quite well. I had some blisters after rains, but my legs are ok. Since early awakening, running, having food while we run, and breaks became my modus vivendi, everything has been accepted as natural… Yeah, it’s a lifestyle now. And a very good style for that matter! To our starting mark I get absolutely fresh, never have I been heavy-eyed. I run right from the starting line. It takes 2-3 hours to warm legs up and then I can work well. Certainly, my well-being changes during the day, but generally it is stable enough. This…

Joke of the day 16


Today I noticed that Asprihanal has bites on his legs and I asked what had happened. Asprihanal answered that some like Chinese food, others – Finish. These are my mosquitoes. I was surprised what they had found to bite, Asprihanal you are so thin! He replies: “They simply have no choice” :-)))

Day 16


 It’s 8 am of Day 16. I just reached the 900 miles mark. To be honest, these miles are seen only on the board. A few days Ago, Ashrihanal reached 1000 miles. Now he has over 1,100 miles. Grahak reached the 1,000 split yesterday. Pyotr did it today.  All of them had personal bests. So, we are having a very good race. Yesterday was Sunday which means more people around, more noise, more everything… Rugby was played on one field, basketball on the other, people kept coming… I did 65 miles which was rather easy. Surprisingly the day went smoothly. It was tough only from 5pm to 7pm. Volodya said later that he was also having a hard time. It felt as if something had tightened up. The weather forecast for today is 27-30 C. It’s the third consecutive day we have gotten no rain. It’s sunny. A real summer!
