Day One

So at last the race is underway. The race began after a minute of silence with the race founder, Sri Chinmoy. Very humid conditions in the early morning and the day got hotter and hotter. Had a great morning, ok afternoonand a poor late afternoo/early evening nut as the night progressed I realised I could still set a PB for the first day which I did, 127 laps almost 70 miles and finished just before midnight. Almost everyone seemed to have a good day. We will see the results tommorrow. A bunch of guys dropped in to say hi today. Tim Korounis brought some South African gentlemen with him including Brian Collings who will shortly be running Western States. I didnt see who was leading tonight but Kurunga had a good day as did Pranab
