Day 48

July 29, 2011

Day 48. 9:24pm Today’s been a versatile day. We started when it was raining and everybody was wearing yellow rain-protective suits. They called us 6 canaries. Throughout the day it was gloomy and it rained again in the evening. The last blessing before Pranjal’s finish tomorrow morning. Surasa came to the start in the morning. Her calf muscle is swollen. The left calf is 1.5 times bigger than the right one. She limped for some time and was then taken to the Chineese doctor who had treated Suprabha and my knee the previous year. The doctor said that she had a serious muscle inflammation and advised that she rest. We haven’t seen her since then, but they just told us that Surasa was coming to the course later in the day. Our finishers – Ashprihanal, Igor and Sarvagata come to see us on a regular basis. They look very happy.

That’s Possible

Author: Utpal 25 July Early this morning Pradeep showed me something wonderful. We had run a few laps together and I was just about to go when he invited me over to his table and he pulled this amazing picture out of his bag. He was really happy and proud to show it to me and I could see why. For it showed the front of the Health Food store in Den Haag in which he is the manager. In his absence his employees, instead of goofing off, have dedicated the entire front window of the shop to him and his exploits here at the 3100 mile race. Read more

Day 47

Archived – click Post Title to view all. Day  47, 8:30 pm. We’ve got one good news and one not so good. In the evening, Ashprihanal finished. For the last few days, today as well, he had been walking. Only on the last lap he trotted a little with the 3100 flag and crossed the finish line with the result 46 days + 12:06:08. In spite of all his walking, it’s still nis 3rd best time and his 11th finish. Only Suprabha has more finishes – 13. He looked a little sad, but he said that his happiest moments had taken place here when after a finish he was sitting next to Sri Chinmoy. After the finish, he was taken directly to our restaurant Oneness-Fountain-Heart where they are having a special program dedicated to Thomas Jefferson. The sad news is Surasa got an injury today. She was running at her regular pace which we are all used to. But around 1pm Pranjal said that she could hardly make it to the camp. She stayed in the van for half hour or a hour and only then did we find out that something had happened to her calf muscle.  In 30 minutes Gaurish, the chiropractor, arrived and tried to fix her. He said that the muscle was swollen and she couldn’t even walk. She had tried to walk a lap and made only a fourth of it, when Bipin transported her back. She stopped running at 1pm and was hanging in there to see Ashprihanal’s finish. Then she was taken…
