United States 7 June: San Diego - Long Beach

Beautiful day along the coastline.

Before we left San Diego we visited a beautiful statue of Sri Chinmoy, the Founder of the Peace Run, for a team photo with some of our local team members and supporters. We are extremely grateful to them for their incredible hospitality and support.

We are so happy that Shambhu Neil Vineberg, the original Executive Director of the Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run was able to join us and share the torch and some great Peace Run stories.

We participated in a two-mile race that takes place every Saturday. The course was a lot of fun for some of us newcomers.
