I would like to offer my gratitude to self-giving people, who were translating Utpal’s posts into russian and making it interesting and beautiful all 52 days of the race in 2016.

This morning when Surasa ran by me she asked if I wouldn’t mind taping a message for her. Of course I considered it a great honor to be able to to record this for all her friends and admirers.
“I have a message for my friends.”
“Dear friends all over the world. I just want to tell you that you don’t have to worry about me. I am really fine.”
I ask him what that means to him and he says, “right now I am not in a talking mood.”
Instead he uses the time to read them all to me. In a thoughtful and compelling way. Sharing with me, that when he read them moments earlier they had made him cry.
