Suprabha moves closer and closer to her finish in tough conditions. Todays high was 95. Tomorrow will be a little cooler but humidity is still on the high side – 50% now and 70% tonight and possibly 80% tomorrow.
This race has been different in many respects from the previous races that I have run. As well as there being a record number of finishers, the race founder Sri Chinmoy has made regular visits to the race to encourage the runners. This race is a spiritual exercise as well as a physical challenge and this brief excerpt from a talk on Self-Transcendence illustrates the point.
“There is a royal road that leads to self transcendence. That road is our surrender, our conscious, unconditional surrender to the Will of the Absolute Supreme.”
