The Journey of 1000 Miles-by Arpan
'The journey of 1000 miles begins with one step' is a familiar aphorism which is very apropos to this race, especially today. Late last night Ashprihanal reached the first 1000 miles and it seems like only yesterday the race started with the first steps. Today two more intrepid runners reached 1000 miles, Atmavir and then Galya soon after. On a day where there was no sign of direct sun at all and then rain all evening until the midnight break, there were also two birthdays celebrated on the course. Tanuja, one of Kaneenika's helpers, had a colorful cake and birthday song. Sanatan, whose service to the race has been very reliable and regular to the race on the weekends, took a more quite and modest birthday approach. Grahak took some time off the course to visit a doctor to check out a persistent hip problem which we hope won't deter his efforts to continue on.
