  • Day 52…My Inspiration (August 8)

    Her story is a miraculous one.  Late in the race reaching the finish line for Yolanda seemed it would be an impossible task.  One, that up until not too long ago,  was receding further and further beyond her grasp. Yet today, on Day 52 it is just 60 miles away.  Something, that as she confidently […]

  • Day 51…The Race Of Life (August 7)

    “I guess I am starting to.” This is how Harita answered my question about whether or not she can now see the finish line.  It is now day 51 and Harita has just 108 miles more to run.  When she soon reaches 3000 miles she will be on what Suprabha once called, the bell lap. […]

  • Day 48…Victory Supreme (August 4)

    Last night Vasu was into his final laps before completing the Self-Transcendence 3100 race for the 6th time.  He was into the very depths of his 47th day here.  His shirt was covered in sweat and he needed to make 67 miles before midnight. As he passes by me along the dark sidewalk a student […]

  • Day 47…I Am Really Happy (August 3)

    Yesterday Ananda-Lahari ran 84 miles.  A number that represents about double what he has been doing most days.  Today he is moving less quickly but the ever present smile brightens his face and as I join him I feel my own smile brightening as well. Today he says, “is a very good day.  Yesterday I […]
