it's 4am on the rock...
paul is lost in 2500 acres of 10' tall corn.
naresh has gone on foot to look for paul.
carl drove off, to look for naresh.
i'm standing in the rain, without any of my shit.
i really want to get back to the room
so i can get an hour of sleep
before the morning call ins start.
i wouldnt mind just being dry.
i am in hell.
but i really can't complain.
juli is on monteagle mountain,
in a monster electrical storm.
10 miles from the nearest town.
sulaiman is lost in tracy city.
being eyed by the local cops.
psyche is trying to sleep on a bench
on the front porch of the walking horse hotel in wartrace.
she wanted to room with dusty.
but the hotel is locked,
and dusty's phone is off while she sleeps.
a shower and a bed are but feet away.
but might as well be back in Missouri.
jan has a shower and a bed,
but a cop picked her up tonight
and took her 6 miles off course to a motel.
she's not sure how she'll return to the course tomorrow.
jay, sherry, charlie, and john
are trudging their way up monteagle mountain.
in the dark.
with nothing open.
diane is already up this morning.
heading from columbia to shelbyville.
trying to stay on pace for a 10 day finish.
marv is striving for columbia,
pushing to get back on pace
after a foot care appointment at the hospital.
dusty and shannon are the only two,
in this whole race
who aren't hungry, thirsty,
they're only tired and sore,
and getting ready to head back out for another day...
accept no imitations...
there's nothing quite like the vol state.
