On May 31 our morning began with a moment of silence at the statue of Sri Chinmoy in the capital of Wales, Cardiff.
We headed off over the Severn Bridge which was dedicated as a Sri Chinmoy Peace Bridge in 1991.
On the English side we stopped for a photo with the plaque. We were a little sorry to leave Wales as we had enjoyed some of the nicest running through the deserted country roads and exquisite countryside.
One June 1st we didn't actually have any running to do but we did participate in the Self-Transcendence Try a Tri! With two of us competing and the rest helping out. We began the race briefing with a short inroduction and then sang the Peace Run song.
All of the trialthon competitors getting ready.
Race Director, Gaga, gave a humourous and informative race briefing.

European Coordinator, Dipavajan, represented the men's team in the triathlon.
Helpful marshals were only too ready to provide assistance.
Devashishu provided helpful directions.
Many families were on hand to support their athletes.
Each swimmer received a gentle tap on the shoulder to alert them they were starting their last lap.

Dave was the winner!!!
Carlos and Akrura, from Brazil, offer their congratulations.
Dipavajan on the home stretch.
The whole gang of family and friends.
If it wasn't for the support crew Dipavajan might not have made it. Actually, he didn't need their help at all, they're just enjoying the reflected glory!;-)
Great going Sukhada!!!
Sumangali made sure everyone got a lovely ceremic mug and a souveneir T-shirt.
Harikanta enjoys the warm weather.
