“My main goal in coming here is to get inspiration.” This is Arun Bardwaj’s 3rd appearance here at the Self Transcendence race in New York.
“On my first time here, from the very beginning I was feeling happy. I had nothing in my mind. No worries. I am feeling in my best physical condition this time.” Currently Arun is tied for 5 th place with 81 miles after 24 hours.
“No Fear.” Arun is appears confident in what he is doing. He says that in Indian scriptures it is written that we should not have fear. “When God says don’t be afraid. Why should we be afraid?”
“Definitely these kind of events inspire me. I am inspired by the great runners in the race. Ultra running has totally changed my life. My way of thinking and everything.”
“I feel lucky and privileged that God has put me into this field of ultra running. I must say that everyone should at least do once in their lifetimes a 6 day race.”
