The kind of physical condition these people are in is beyond the scope of reason.
Each man and woman still on the course after 200 miles is suffering.
No one has looked good in the past 24 hrs.

They are:
Abi meadows- 300 miles- finishing before midnite
Naresh Kumar- 282- sub 7???
Sherry Meador- 260
Fred and Joe the survivors- 244
Sal- in Manchester sleeping
Jp- 241
Josh h- 236

some of them are hard to look at.
they’ve got to want it really bad.
at other races
you might have to be fast
you might have to be strong
but the volstate
is all about wanting it
really bad

the “it” they want really bad right now
is for IT to be over…


day 8 vol state sunrise

About 2am, Somewhere around Manchester Vol State 2011

The weather is uninhabitable, even for walking outside at 8am. It was already 94 degrees on our vehicle gauge. I don’t know how they are doing this.
