A total of 14 runner’s have quit the race, leaving a remainder of 52 on the road. Currently, Westbrook is over halfway at 160 miles. After 84 hours into the race, he has moved into 14th place in the screwed category.

One night he was having trouble finding anything open for food, all he had was a Snickers bar and a drink. The following day around noon he got a chance to eat at Burger King. RW and a group came upon a familiar campground where, in the past years, the owner welcomed them to relax and get fed. This year, a new owner is running the campground and would not let the runner’s on the property even to buy a drink out of the machine. What an arse!!!

Tonight, he is on the search for sustenance once again. Hopefully, he finds something open or a well timed Road Angel along the way. He definitely needs the fuel to keep on through the next half of the race.
