Day 26: Try To Go Forward

“I think it is just like in our life.  It goes up and down the same as the race.  We try to never give up.”

“I think I have had many experiences this time, which I needed.  This race is very similar to my first race in which quite a lot of things happened.”

Last night Vasu ran 51 miles.  Interestingly only 3 out of 7 runners managed to make 60 miles yesterday.

“I am trying to transcend myself in numbers but if I cannot then I will try and transcend myself inwardly.  I am trying to go forward and forward.”

In about an hours time Vasu will reach 1550 miles the half way point in the race.  I ask if it will be significant for him.

“This is a 3100 mile race.  3100 miles is the main goal for me.  The other numbers are just like steps for me to reach my goal.”
