This year I established my personal best in 3100 mile race – 48 days + 3 hours 57 minutes and 19 seconds. Almost by 9 hours I surpassed my five years old record. It looks like the time of suffering, injuries and low energy is finally behind me. Of course, 3100 mile race is unpredictable, but the overall feeling of flight is definitely  there. I hope this is just the beginning. Feeling that I was just born as fast runner on 3100 in this particular 2014.
I had a number of things that never happened during the race before:

•6 days out of 48 I did more than 70 miles (112 km)
•last 3 days prior to the finish day – 70, 70 and 71 miles
•last day – super pace: 20 miles in 3 hours 57 minutes. Under the rain with heavy shoes

•first 1550 miles of the race – 24 days + 12:55:36, second 1550 miles – 23 days +15:01:43
•average speed – 64.366 miles per day (103,587 km)
