Running inside and out

Spent the morning shopping for spikes for my son who is a keen athlete. We ended up at a shop in Dalry called run and become that seems to do much more than simply sell sports equipment.

It’s roots (its part of a wider chain) lie in the teachings of a Bengali born philosopher and athlete called sri chinmoy about whom I knew nothing until today but I now want to know more. Suffice to say that his philosophy was that sport should be seen as an essential ingredient in a holistic way of living, bringing the optimum health required for a dynamic spiritual life.

I was fascinated but my boy was more interested in using the strip of artificial grass they have in the middle of the shop to test out your potential purchases! Both us got something new from our shopping experience however, one internal and one external, which is the kind of effect sri chinmoy though was how it should be.
