If he can get within 100 miles with 2 days to go, he'll gut out a finish.
We haven't seen him go to exhaustion yet. Still pulling 45 + a day or more.
And notice there is no definite mileage total announced by the RV team. So no one really knows how many miles he has left according to them. All you need is 2978. Earlier he said he was shooting for 3100. So that may mean that his announced pace of needing. 13 days of 58 left refers to 3100 goal but not to 2978 minimum for record.
If so that means he knocks off 122 miles.
So instead of 13 days of 58 for 754 miles he would only need 754 - 122 or 632 miles divided by 13 days = 48.5 miles per day.
Guess what he is running? 48 per day
So you are saying he will get the record without running coast to coast?
It's not a race to 2978 miles, it's a race to the other side.
