5 1/2 days into the race 24 screwed runners have quit. It has been record high temperatures this year. 67 are still in the unsupported division of the race with Westbrook in 62nd. He is hoping to finish still as the course grows more difficult and he manages his pain. Currently, 185 miles behind him, he is now past Columbia.
