LAVS 2016 - DAY 4 AND 1/2 UPDATE

LAVS 2016 – DAY 4 AND 1/2 UPDATE

Four and a half days into the race and one more screwed runner has quit. Another runner who is crewed is with the police in Lewisburg, in order to give her IV fluids. Further reports from the Last Annual Vol State page:

“i am not sure when there will be another comprehensive update.
andrew will finish later today,
and then we have a sizeable gap
(probably 6 or 7 hours)
until the parade at the rock begins.

82 started.
2 have finished, about to be 3.
17 have quit
1 is in police custody.

everyone is hurt now.
they are all trying to marshall their remaining resources,
to drag themselves the rest of the way to the rock.

just before noon here in kimball.
the heat index has hit 105
aiming to top 110…
(again)
the thunderstorms yesterday afternoon dumped a lot of water on the ground,
which is now all steaming back up into the sky,
so we can have another lighting and rain show this afternoon.
lovely weather pattern for the runners on the road.

don’t you you wish you were out there with them?”

and “columbia is already at 110
lewisburg is a brisk 107
shelbyville is a mere 109
manchester is leading at 111.

this is where the bulk of the field is passing thru today

pretty sure there is a heat advisory out today.
someone ought to tell the runners,
just in case they dont notice.

the 105 here…
whoops, it just moved to 106…”

Westbrook is hanging in there. He has finished 197 miles and is past Culleoka, Tennessee. For this update he is in 24th place within the screwed division.
