book-cover.jpgRunning in the Rhythm of the Heart is Jayasalini Olga Abramovskikh's account of her epic finish of the Sri Chinmoy Self-Transcendence 3100 Mile Race. Jayasalini became the first Russian woman to complete the race when In 2014, she crossed the line in 51 days, 12 hours and 31 minutes - less than 6 hours before the cut-off. Before she attempted this race, Jayasalini was also a regular participant in the Sri Chinmoy 6 and 10 day races held every April in Flushing Meadows, Queens, invariably finishing in the top three runners.

In the book, which is written in Russian, Jayasalini talks about what inspired her to contemplate such a long race, her training and preparation, and her experiences during the race.
