SRI CHINMOY

(1931 - 2007)

This site started out as my running blog 15 years ago, but as time has gone on its expanded to include triathlon, cycling, trekking, kayaking and whatever else I try my hand at. The common thread is "Self-Transcendence", a term popularised by Sri Chinmoy, who has been my spiritual teacher since 1993. Best known as a meditation teacher, Sri Chinmoy was a decathlete in his youth and later an endurance athlete and record-breaking weightlifter. He encouraged his students to make exercise and endurance sport a part of their "yoga". He once said "Each step forward has a sacred meaning of its own", and that's how this site acquired it's name. There are blog posts/articles on Sri Chinmoy, Iron-distance triathlon, fell running and climbing Mount Agung in Indonesia as well as posts of all the races, canoe trips and bike rides I take part in. In 2018 I celebrated my 50th birthday with a 960k ride from Filton to Heidelberg and a lifetime PB of 2.23 for Standard Distance Triathlon. 2019 began with a 10k on the dramatic coastline of the Algarve on New Year's Day and a chilly swim-run at Albufeira the next morning! I've got another 6 hilly bike challenges to complete between now and July and I'm planning to step up to 10k in open water swimming and 400km at Audax riding. Surprisingly, after a 10 year gap, I've just finished a marathon.......Garga Roger Chamberlain
