a clean hour coming up to midnight.

of course it is not midnight for most of the field,

for the japanese team it is early afternoon

for the aussies and new zealanders it is late afternoon

for the western europeans it is daybreak.


maybe the clean hour is because it is the right time of day where most of the field lives.

i know it seems to be the north american runners coming closer to the whistles right now.


talk in the scoring tent is around the numbers being put up.

and the 48 hour 200 miler is the big number next to come.

i am not sure what is the largest number of people to break 48 hours for 200 miles in a single race.

i am just sure a new mark is going to be established in about 6 hours….


and i dont think the old number will even be close.
