I just visited the site which shows Sri Chinmoy and others applauding
enthusiastically and joyfully for Namitaba after he won the 3,100-
mile race, plus a photo of Namitaba with a huge smile.
The site is:
What a stupendous achievement. Now, I am praying for each of the
other runners to reach their goal. It is hard to say that one
person "won" the race, because the achievement is so monumental that
anyone who participates and does a high mileage has also won. Their
lives will never be the same.
