Journey To The Unknown

By | Jun 26, 2010

Journey To The Unknown Many people try to understand why a handful of runners would want to run day after day for almost two months around about one half mile concrete surface during the summer months in New York City. Most of these runners have done it more than once, so there is even more […]

My Ageathon

By | Jul 24, 2009

photo by Arpan Every year since I was 26 years old I have run my age in miles around the time of my birthday. When I was 26 years old I had already had run a 26 mile marathon so I thought that increasing by only one mile the next year would not be so […]

Neighborly Visits

Mystery Guests

photo by Arpan Today the 3100 Mile Self-Transcendence Race was visited by about 40 ‘mystery guests’ who drove up in an old green and white school bus.

Rainbow-Opportunities

photo by Arpan As we see from this most luminous poem by Sri Chinmoy, every day has opportunities of various colors and degrees, like a rainbow. As expected, all of the runners have some bad days and some very good days. The days are so long for them that within each day there are many […]

Journey To The Unknown

photo by Arpan I wish to follow up my last post called ‘Poetry In Motion’ with a poem I wrote in 2002, inspired by the 3100 mile race as I was helping the runners everyday. Sri Chinmoy seemed to like the poem as I read it out at a function on the occasion of my […]

Yet Sri Chinmoy, who was an athlete of the highest order from his youth and throughout the rest of his life, also created a non-stop outpouring of creativity in the fields of […]

Counting on Them

By | Jul 10, 2009

There are many helpers who make this race possible for the runners. The Race Directors who work so hard to see that many systems run as smoothly as possible, the cooks, handlers and the indispensable counters all have invaluable roles to play in making this extremely long event run smoothly. The counters most certainly have […]

Flower Power

The day before the 3100 mile race started, Diganta, one of the runners, was inspired to plant flowers in various locations around the course. Although some of the flowers did not survive it inspired some of the helpers to start planting more flowers in locations suitable to sustain their growth. Niriha and Arpita, who is […]
