20088Re: 6 & 10 Day race
- May 30, 2007Dear Utpal, I want to thank you for your wonderful work.....in the
last 10 years I have struggled mightily with my running, sometimes
stopping for months...injuries, decreased energy levels, blood sugar
control problems, you name it, I have gone through it. And eventually
discouragement, the worst of diseases, creeps in.
Last year I was inspired to do the Self-Transcendence Marathon in
August. I did it with no base training at all; just because I wanted
to challenge impossibility, which had been getting the better of me
Thanks to God's Grace, my running is coming back, and I love going for
a run in the neighborhood, where I do a loop with hills, similar to
the kind of terrain I encounter when I visit my mother in Puerto Rico.
She lives iin the countryside, and it is a hilly, ondulating course I
run out there.
It is really nice to listen and see the runners as they talk a little
about themselves and their experience in the race. Sri Chinmoy has
inspired so many countless people in the world through his worldwide
initiatives in sports, music, art and literature. His mighty
achievements in all these fields is a testament to how he practices
what he preaches: self-transcendence.
Since I started studying meditation with Sri Chinmoy, I have become
more athletic, having run more than 8 marathons....my musical
capacities have also increased, and I am happier than ever, as I feel
more love for humanity than ever before.
I am also grateful to the organizers of these multi-day races, and to
you for bringing us a little of this wonderful world of
self-transcendence through running.
I hope that many more people watch this videos and get inspired to run
and strive to ever-transcending goals.
