    Yuppie!
    Auspicious journey has started! Grace and supremely delightful journey to all the runners, helpers and to you, extraordinary Utpal!

    Only an explosion
    Of self-giving activities
    From each individual
    Can save this precarious world
    From threatening destruction-night.

    Sri Chinmoy, Twenty-Seven Thousand Aspiration-Plants, part 153, Agni Press, 1991

    one more thing: Utpal, you never stop surprising us. Thank you for always introducing something new in your reports – you are a true example of self-transcendence and eternal newness. The 360 video totally makes us feel present physically.

    Utpal thanks as always for keeping us informed and entertained. Can’t believe I’m not there helping this year but I look forward to reading your entries every day. Hi runners! Go Susan!!!

    Wow! It is so amazing to see all of the runners taking on this huge challenge despite the weather and some of their doubts and physical struggles. I hope Petra was able to figure out her tent 😉 Don Winkley is 80? That’s unreal!

    Godspeed to everyone!

    Ps: that picture of Devashishu sawing a piece of wood in half while looking off in another direction is very disconcerting, tell him to watch what he’s doing…safety first guys!
