World Harmony Run

Posted by Filed Under: Inspiration & Motivation, Video

I had not heard of the World Harmony Run until I went looking for some good video and when I found this clip I felt like I had opened a door to a new world – a world where harmony and peace are a priority.

The World Harmony Run was founded by Sri Chinmoy in 1987. From their website: The World Harmony Run is a global relay that seeks to promote international friendship and understanding. As a symbol of harmony, runners carry a flaming torch, passing it from hand to hand travelling through over 100 nations around the globe. The World Harmony Run does not seek to raise money or highlight any political cause, but simply strives to create goodwill among peoples of all nations.

Right now it is taking place in Qatar. It will come to the US in April. It will travel to Canada but that doesn’t seem to be scheduled yet.

You, too can get involved by clicking on their ‘participate’ link.

I found myself at the age of 38 the single full time working mother of 3 small children. I took up running because I figured I could get the biggest benefit in the least amount of time. Swearing never to run a marathon I found myself going out for a 4 - 6 mile run several times a week. I ran my first marathon 6 years later. Five years after that I ran another and then the next year another. Then I got bit by the triathlon bug so now I split my time between running, swimming and cycling. This year I think I'll run another marathon. And next year - who knows?
