It was a perfect June morning when the 3100 mile race began in New York today. This is the 12th summer that this race has been held here.

In so many ways, he will be missed, by all those who continue to run, to transcend themselves, and also in those, who help to carry out his vision of inspiring the world, in so many ways.

The first one is enthusiasm. Who embodies enthusiasm? A little child.......one to two, two to three, three to four and so on. The mind tries to go to the destination by cutting, cutting, cutting.
