Throw back Thursday (summer, 2008) - I love history and came up with a plan to run the 241 mile Ghandi Salt March in the western state of Gujarat, India.

It was really tough running in extremely humid conditions, through unbelievable traffic ranging from scores of mopeds to monkeys. Yet it was magical in connecting with so many of the Indian people. Locals would come out and run or walk a mile or drive their moped or bike next to me. The local Indian media followed me everyday and locals would welcomed me into their homes. traveling the vast majority alone, inventing the plan as I went with the language barrier had its challenges. My feet had the worst blisters I’ve ever experienced and I was reduced to walking with bamboo sticks by the end.

Mahatma Gandhi’s Salt March influenced the world’s attitude toward Indian self-rule with his act of defiance in breaking the salt rule of the British Empire with civil disobedience, it had major ripples to influence leaders from Dr. King to Mandela in the March to democracy. The history along the route and people I met left an indelible mark on me. #GhandiSaltMarch
