Day 3

June 14, 2011

June 14, 3.14 p.m. we have the third day of 3100 race. All are alive and kicking, some are alive, some are kicking, some are not so good, but all are going ahead because there is no other direction. Purna-Samarpan and Ananda – Lahari are mostly walking today; the body is getting used to the training loads. In spite of feeling better, I am going to make fewer miles than yesterday. But the main thing is to keep the right state of mind, inner poise and joy. I think I can make a push later. Our newbies – Igor and Sarvagata –are pushing now. It seems that everything is very natural for them. they are fast runners by nature. Ashprihanal is running better than yesterday as well. He said that yesterday was a disaster. So everything is quite good, including the weather. I am even running in a long-sleeve T-shirt now because it is chilly. It has been + 16 since morning. Tomorrow it’s going to be colder. But for running it is just fine. The results on the official site of 3100 are keept up to date and our current miles are growing every day. you can see there.

Joke of the day

June 13, 2011

The transition period for some of us is in its zenith. Ashprihanal overtakes me and asks (it seems that it is not very easy running for him now) – So how are you? – Well, trying to get through the transition phase. How are you? – The same. How do you think the newcomers can be running so quickly? – Do you mean the Ukrainian rocket (Igor Mudrik)? He is just young. We are already veterans.

Day 1

June 12, 2011

Archived – click Post Title to view all. The first day. Well, the race has started. Everybody is running quite freshly. Igor and Sarvagata are very frisky. Sometimes I can see those who outrun me: Pranjal, Ashprihanal, Atmavir and Igor accompanied by Sarvagata. All others are running at the same pace. For instance, I have not seen Pradip since morning, as well as Surasa. Probably they are somewhere : ) Sarvagata is obviously very happy that he has started, he has been dreaming about it for a long time and at last he is at the race. Igor said that it seemed that he had been here before, that he had been running here before. Pranjal is flying now at the first space speed, he is overtaking me now. Judging by the results of the day he has a plan . He is big and strong. The weather is indulging us: it has been cloudy since morning, but now it is fine : a nice sun in clouds. The temperature is +18 which is ideal for running. If there was not the out of season period it would be excellent. I think in about 5 days it will be absolutely perfect. Everybody is in high spirits. In the morning ESPN TV channel filmed us for the E:60 program and NBC channel for Today’s Show. They broadcast not only throughout America but all over the world. The lady journalist found Rupantar last year, she was interested in the race but it was late then as the race was finishing….

It Touches The Whole World

From time to time groups of people sometimes get concerned that life on earth is suddenly going to end.  They have it on good evidence, it would seem, that our world as we know it is just going to stop being.  I have of course no evidence to contradict any of these theories, but certainly as of 6 am on June 12 the world was still functioning more or less as it always does.  10 runners stepped across the starting line, on a cool drizzling morning in Queens NY, to officially take part in the longest race in the world, the Self Transcendence 3100 mile race.
