Re: First 3100 mile race finisher
- Utpal's videos on the 3100 race and on Madhupran's record-braking
finish are a real window into this race. I have visited the actual
race this summer on several occasions while in New York and the
interviews in the video footage give a much deeper sense of the race
as well as the opportunity to try to internalize the message that it
offers like a beacon to everyone. Now don't ask me to delve further
into that since I'm still assimilating the comments from the videos.
The Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team site
filled me in on how several more individuals are very close to
finishing the race.
For a light-hearted break from the magnitude of this race which I
feel is perhaps changing the course of human history, go to the latest
Inspiration News Episode and check out the AWESOME sand sculptures on
the theme of the circus.
Kudos to Kedar for his inimitable Inspiration-News weekly episode
Nope! I didn't make popcorn but there's obviously plenty of video
viewing beckoning at Sri Chinmoy TV.
