The first 24 hours have passed in the 10 day race
Before the first 24 hours Budjargal got 100 miles
He is running very well and is leading the 10 day field.
“I promised you that I would come back after 10 years.” Last year Pedja Knezevic ran the 10 race after an absence of 10 years. (69 miles for 24 hours)
“I changed my mind because I realized it was a very important race. When I saw my people when I came home I saw how happy they were so therefore I decided to run again.”

I as Pedja how it is possible to give joy to both yourself and others by running. “Definitely. That is what I saw. Also I fell now a very big support from them. Of course it is easier to sit home and do nothing but this is pretty hard race.”
“It is very strange to try and explain but I feel as though I am releasing something from inside of me and it is coming out. It is joy, real pure joy. You can’t real describe it or can you explain it. It is coming from inside and I am really happy to be here.”
I feel that you must feel very deeply what you are doing. That is the secret. If you know that then it is not a problem.”
“I am taking it easy, very very easy.” Arun has 66 miles for 24 hours. “I am not in a hurry.”
“I am not living for 10 days I am only living for today……Every day is a new day.”
“I had the feeling when I was here doing the 6 day race that this year I should do the 10.” Albena has 63 miles for her first 24 hours.
“I was in terrible pain last year when I was walking with my friend Giribhu. She told me don’t worry how you feel, next year do the 10 day. Definitely.”
Albena is not sure if she was joking when she said that. When asked why she would want to increase a painful experience by 4 more days, she says, “I have absolutely no idea.” She adds that once you do the race then you become hooked. “You just have to go again.”
“Yesterday before the race started. I was saying to myself that I wanted to go home.” She felt overwhelmed by the immensity of the project. “Somehow, in someway I thought…I will just do it.”
“I am happy and very grateful.” Ushika has 77 miles for the first 24 hours.
“Joy, gratitude help you to stay in the best consciousness. If you have a good consciousness it guarantees that you will run well.”
He says that those who use just the force of their will can of course do well but they will have quite a different type of experience.
“In general I have usually experience with my family of other multi day runners that consciousness works the best.”
