RE: Robert Young fakes run across America
RY came back with determination today.
I was really doubtful that he could recover from the bloodbath that was yesterday.
his recuperative powers are as advertised. remarkable.
this is an important trait for a multiday runner to possess.
he had a good session before his midnight rest break.
altho he came out of his midnight break sluggish,
and stopped again for several hours before sunup
(a struggle for the geezer team to stay alert)
at that point, I was doing the math to see when it would be over.
but RY was not over.
he came out and walked for a while.
then he started to run.
just like his 60 mile day a couple of days ago,
he got into a good, steady multiday pace,
and ate up the miles.
to clarify my remark yesterday about pulling the plug.
there is a lot of difference between having someone who is entered in a race,
and someone who is doing a solo run of their own device.
the decision to go on or not,
was up to him and his crew.
the race director must hew to a much stricter standard.
RY ran past the early stopping time of yesterday,
still looking strong.
he ran all the way thru to the time he normally returns from his big break...
to my knowledge, he is still out there, now.
I am just guessing.
because I have no insight into the workings of his mind.
but I think he is responding to all of his critics.
maybe even those who believed he was at the end.
he was out to produce a big day.
and he produced it.
still, i hope when the miles per hour gets too low,
he will rest again.
that huge effort only trimmed a half a mile off his required daily mileage.
this war will not be won in a single day.
he has to have a big day every day.
