The Sri Chinmoy Centre has been my life, my journey and my home for many, many years. I hope these pages offer a small glimpse into the joy, the grace and the wonder that is Sri Chinmoy.


Looking back over the many years I have been involved in running, I now wish my pen had hit the paper as often as my feet hit the pavement. There are however a few stories here that, despite their age, may just have a few more miles left in them. The following selection of running articles, anecdotes and stories – some previously published, some not – were written over a number of decades from the 1970s on.
