Inspired by my Guru, Sri Chinmoy, I began running marathons in 1992 with The Firenzia Marathon as my first, ultramarathons around 1995 with Across The Years 24 hour and multiday races starting with the inaugural Sri Chinmoy 10 day race in New York in 1996. From 2003 to 2008 inclusive I ran the Self-Transcendence 3100 mile race also in New York which has taken place every year in June since 1996.
In 2009 I was unable to attend the race yet the goal continues. This journal is about my running and preparation to complete the distance within the given time-frame, 51 days and will continue to be a motivating factor.
