The Four-Minute Miler

by Sri Chinmoy

Today I ran on the course for our four-mile race at Breezy Point before the other runners. While I was running, I passed an elderly couple, and the husband started joking with me, saying, “Oh, a four-minute miler?”

I said, “Yes, a four-minute miler.”

When I was coming back from the turnaround point, the wife was asking Savita about me. The lady said, “That’s that older runner.”
