Day 28

July 9, 2011

9.50pm A few laps ago, Purna-Samarpan did 1,550 miles and he still cherishes the hope to finish the race before the cutoff (day 52). He is running faster now and did 116 laps yesterday. His spirits are also fine. Which you cannot say of Ananda-Lahari – he’s been walking for the past 2 weeks and something is not working out for him this year. In a few miles, Ashrihanal is going to cross the 2,000 mile mark which is pretty decent. My 3-day eye epic has ended today. My common sense took the best of me and I asked Maral to have a look at my eye. There was a grain of sand stuck. He took it away and I am feeling much better. The eye is red still, but these are just aftereffects which will disappear soon. One can only wonder that a tiny particle can give one so much trouble and get one to the edge. Our rockets Igor and Sarvagata are still flying. Looks like Sarvagata decided to catch up with Ashprihanal. For the last several days, he’s been doing 140 laps (76 miles). Stay tuned!

Day 27

July 8, 2011

Archived – click Post Title to view all. It’s our last hour of the day. A few words about yesterday. The whole day I was crying. My eye was, be exact. Something must have gotten stuck in it or I could have scratched it. I tried applying different stuff on it but it didn’t get better. In the morning, tears began streaming. Even when I was wearing sunglasses, the wind was still bothering it and I was blinking all the time. When I couldn’t bear it anymore, I had to use antibiotics eye drops. It got a little better. I had to run in sun glasses till late into the night. I got compliments that I looked cool. They wouldn’t say that if they saw what was behind the glasses. Each race bring something new. The eye thing has happened for the first time. Everything can happen as we are outside the whole day and experience rain, wind, and heat. Today I woke up with no energy to go. When I started running, I realized that this was one of those days when I didn’t have enough sleep. No energy at all. Then Igor caught up with me and took me in tow. We started chatting about this and that and then I had a good run and picked up a decent speed (120 laps a day). At 4 pm it started pouring. It has just stopped raining. I had to change shoes twice and my feet are heavy. It means that I will have a fewer laps….
