July 26: Stay Positive (Utpal)

July 26, 2016
Kaneenika has been running for 89 days now on the course.  She has collected 5304 miles but has yet to reach her goal.
This of course makes little sense unless  you are familiar with her history here at the race from last year.  She gave of course a valiant effort over 52 days but came up in the final hour still 86 miles short of the distance.  An injury she received in a fall late in the race kept her back from being able to maintain her pace.

July 25: We Are Learning Here (Utpal)

July 25, 2016

July 20, 2016
 I asked Surasa the question that I suspect many people have been wondering.  How are you?

“If you don’t ask about my legs than I am fine.”

July 19: An Amazing Experience (Utpal’s blog)

July 19, 2016
“I am alive and happy.” Speaking with Yuri this morning he somehow makes what he has just done look deceptively easy.  Late yesterday evening he completed 2000 miles.  For the few who were there to witness it. Some bells were rung and he slowed for just a moment and then quickly kept going.  He still has a long long way to go.

July 18: Step by Step (Utpal’s blog)

July 18, 2016

“This is the quietest area at least at night time.” Ananda-Lahari points his right hand towards a low brick wall where the Enthusiasm Awakeners sing each morning and also were Sri Chinmoy once used to come as well and practice his music. It is a typical Sunday afternoon at the 3100 mile race and for my ears it is raucous and loud and almost unbearable.  Just making one loop on a hot Sunday afternoon and you are constantly bombarded by hordes of people and volumes of sound. “There is always noise on Sunday.”
