Yesterday reached 2000 miles amid high humidity. Day before, Chiropractor Dr John Rousseau passed by a gave me a quick treatment which saved the day.

We are extremely fortunate to have the support of a pair of Chiropractors who have generously devoted time every week to come to the race and take care of our tired and worn out bodies out of the goodness of their hearts. Putting us back on the straight and narrow takes several hours and we are extremely grateful to Jamie Warren and to Jeffrey Garofalo, who gave me his card, for their kindness and oneness, we live to tell the tale. Jeff’s email address is

Tonight I reached just over 1700 miles and the days are going quicker. Matt has had an unbelievable day to take the days honours. Well done Matt.

The photo is from the start of the 2003 Self-Transcendence race and today is day 11 just completed and was I glad to finish today. Three hot days in a row and today the heat index was over a hundred. Matt has mostly recovered from his knee injury while Stefan is still on the recovery list. Today was graduation day for the students at Thomas Edison and the course was extremely busy all morning. There are thunderstorms and lower temperatures forecast for tommorrow.

My hearts gratitude
The amount of support I have received has been tremendous and not least from the financial perspective as resources were low, not expecting this opportunity to arise. Subsequently, Sanjay Daid Dhanraj a local real estate broker has raised my entire entrance fee, $750 in less than a week from colleagues and family. Plus my good friend Ongkar Smith and his wife and daughters, athletic footwear specialists par excellence, who own the Run and Become stores in London, Edinburgh, and Cardiff have very generously offered shoes and accessories to ease my plight and concerns. Since the beginning of my running career Ongkar has always offered support unconditionaly and I am extremely grateful for his oneness. Many people have offered their good wishes and encouragement and I would like to thank you all here and hope I am able to utilise these gifts to their best advantage. Not least among my supporters are the Manager, Sahishnu and staff of the Smile of The Beyond, a friendly vegetarian restarant in Jamiaca, Queens, New York, who live above and beyond the call of duty, who share the same vision, and who shall never be forgotten as long as I have a functioning brain.
