NUMBER 67 – 120 hours later, or 5 days into the race wondering what made him crazy enough to do this, Westbrook is still moving forward in the grueling heat on the open road. He still hurts but will not stop. Run through the pain, your body will adapt is what he holds steady to from his many previous experiences. This has rang true, but at times, running through the pain simply can not be done.

Two screwed runners ahead of Richard have switched themselves into the crewed division in need of some support, and letting Westbrook move ahead a bit. He is in 37th place in the solo division. He is past Lewisburg, Tennessee having completed 203 miles. Two other screwed runners, behind Richard also switched to the crewed group and one of them has quit. The unsupported, screwed group of runners has now dwindled to 64 crazy people pounding the pavement. Wish them the best and that they all struggle into the finish at some point in time.
