Even with a wind behind you 31 hours is pretty good going for 91 miles....none stop!

the time was the google estimate

91 miles on foot for me = 1 week :D

the only way id make it in 40 hours or less would be with the assistance of amphetamine (not unknown for guys in my old regiment to "bomb" a wrap an hour before the Combat fitness test)
