Self-Transcendence 3100 Mile Race 2017 – Daily Updates – Day 15

Daily Diary
Monday 3rd July

Another warm day with temps peaking at 89F in the early afternoon, once again a short heavy rain shower around 6pm gave way to a balmy evening which many pick up the pace.
This late surge saw Kaneenika become the third through 1000 miles in the very late evening, around 11:17pm. No bells nor fuss does she want – NO she just continues to slightly increase her cruising speed. This meant a late night?.
Both Harita and Yolanda ran very controlled throughout the? day and cleverly and clearly matching performance with the weather conditions
