Sri Chinmoy runs the 4-mile race, sponsored by the Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team, at Breezy Point, Long Island, New York, in a time of 36 minutes and 16 seconds.


The four-minute miler

Today I ran on the course for our four-mile race at Breezy Point before the other runners. While I was running, I passed an elderly couple, and the husband started joking with me, saying, “Oh, a four-minute miler?”

I said, “Yes, a four-minute miler.”

When I was coming back from the turnaround point, the wife was asking Savita about me. The lady said, “That’s that older runner.”
