Self-Transcendence 3100 Mile Race 2017 – Daily Updates – Day 45

Daily Diary
Tuesday 1st August – Day 45

Temp reached around 89F into the early afternoon, so a little on the hot side, but a balmy evening means most are able to perform well.

Ans to Day 45

Kaneenika Janakova
Kaneenika’s cake

1) – top performance with another 121 laps
2) – no but second with another 119 laps and yes passes Nirbhasa to go into 2nd place by 4 laps or 2.2 miles.
3) – just a little bit as he drops to 111 laps, but noticeably rallies late on as it is pointed that the lady is true World class, on track to shatter the the womans record, he is 2 days ahead of his previous run in 2015. Nothing to do with his performance.
4) both ahead of their daily targets by 2 laps each.

This was moving day and very busy.
Also Kaneenika celebrated her “naming” with a wonderful cheesecake. But no time to stop for photos nor to cut it.
