About Abhejali

I love sports, especially running and swimming, but almost any sport is very relaxing for me. As a kid I used to swim, mainly breaststroke. When I was 18 I became a member of Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team. The main motto of the team is self-transcendence and it very easily became my motto as well. I started running more, and moved from shorter races to longer ones, the longest so far being 6-day race in NY when I did 385 miles. When I found out that many members of Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team swam the English Channel, I think the seed was already planted. I did a few Zurich lake relay swims and then became a part of English Channel relay in 2009. Next year I ran my favourite World Harmony Run (this time in US) and 2011 I found myself swimming from England to France, although I remember very clearly telling my friends to stop me if I ever wanted to do a solo swim :-) Once you start you are caught. Especially when there are so many ways you can transcend yourself. Ive been a vegetarian for over 16 years. Also Im very excited that the founder of our team, Sri Chinmoy, will be inaugurated this year into the International Marathon Swimming Hall of Fame! A great person who inspired not only me but many others to be the best they can be.
