Our local coordinator Sunmati presented a Jharna Kala artwork to the group who ran with us. Thank you so much!

We were so inspired by all the local runners, who were in such a good running shape.

Making wishes for peace.

Everyone was so friendly! Harita met Miraya Montoyo in the park and she ended up joining the team and running with us!

We were also delighted to be spontaneously joined by Patricia Wariara, pictured holding the torch, who is originally from Kenya and currently living in Mexico.

Running through hilly Tijuana had a real Mexican spirit, with people waving at us and cars beeping.

Everyone enjoyed the exercice where we try to feel peace in our hearts and spread it all around.
