It was the Best of Times
- Lines from Charles Dickens tend to be quoted a little too often.
Sometimes however, his turn of a phrase tends to be just right, no
matter how hard you might try to find a different source. The title of
todays piece, could just as well be, a tale of two runners.
I want to thank Abhinabha for his appreciation of my stories. He
obviously has a real connection to the sport of running and also
recognizes that this event in Queens is a most unique manifestation.
Here of course 14 runners journey down an impossibly long path. But
also, we who watch, or help, or even read about from afar, can join in
this great transformative experience, through our oneness.
I must caution Abhinabha that his enthusiasm for running is very
similar to all those I have interviewed. He perhaps might like to
look into rescheduling his summer plans next year and sign up as well
