It was a great honor to camp on Mahasamrat's ranch for the night. The morning came early, we had a 5am workout appointment.

The legendary gym where Mahasamrat Bill Pearl and Bhavatarini Judy Pearl workout at 5am together six days a week. They invited the team to join them on this special day.

Let's start our morning exercises...

Instructions were given on how to use the machines.

Bhavatarini was the leader for the women's team.

Arpan getting stronger.

It is no surprise that Dennis is the strongest on the team.

Trying his best!

The women's team was very thankful to have Bhavatarini coach us.

Palash works out her hamstrings.

Overdone for the day.

This classic Ford was restored by Mahasamrat. He pays excellent attention to detail, restoring each accessory to its original perfection.

After the workout we relaxed with tea and fresh coffee. We enjoyed talking about fitness and felt so inspired by the morning sunlight.

After breakfast the team was invited to Mahasamrat's incredible office. He also likes bicycles and has a fantastic antique collection.

Sandro scores a new ride.

We all felt like children among the wind up toy collection. So fun!

Mahasamrat shows the team a steel tent spike, this is the same type he used to bend to demonstrate his strength.

The team presented Bhavatarini and Mahasamrat with gifts and a certificate of appreciation.

Mahasamrat personally autographed copies of his book GETTING STRONGER for the team. We offer our tremendous heartfelt gratitude for his kindness to us, as a friend and a coach.

The two strongest men shake hands.

At the Boys and Girls Club in Coos Bay we shared a moment of peace with the children.

New Zealand vs. Woodstock New York in a skit about good sportsmanship.

Thank you to the Coos Bay Boys and Girls club for your enthusiastic participation in the run.

Natabara is all smiles running in his homestate of Oregon.

The women's team was out running along the beautiful Oregon coastline.

The ocean cliffs on the left offered us some spectacular views.

At Arpan's brother's house, chef Joseph prepares a homemade pizza.

The Peace run is an opportunity for brothers Arpan and Giribar Rick DeAngelo to spend time together. Catching up with relatives is a great part of the run. The men's team stayed here in Elmira Oregon with the DeAngelos.

Pizza is never yummier than when baked in a natural earth wood-burning oven.

Please send us a message, we would LOVE to hear from you.
