All of Abraham’s successors knew it and continued his legacy. The great Kabbalist, Rabbi Moshe Chaim Lozzatto (Ramchal), wrote in Adir BaMarom [ The Mighty One On High ] “Noah was created to correct the world in the state that it was at that time.”  In, The Commentary of Ramchal on the Torah , he wrote that “Moses wished to complete the correction of the world at that time. This is why he took the mixed multitude, as he thought that thus would be the correction of the world … However, he did not succeed because of the corruptions that occurred along the way.”  Still, the world was not ready to embrace unity wholeheartedly. As a result, those who pledged to be “as one man with one heart” became the people of Israel and were entrusted with the duty to treasure the method of achieving unity until the world is ready.
Croix Sather (world record holder for the solo self-sustained crossing of Badwater Ultramarathon) doesn’t plan an off-season as much as he simply lets the brutal schedule of 100 mile races, running across America, and ultramarathon world records dictate when he will be resting. “I let my body tell me when that needs to happen,” he said. For many ultra-runners “there really is no off-season,” he said. It’s a way of life. After Sather set the world record for a solo self-sustained crossing at Badwater six weeks ago, he took about two weeks completely off. Then, he started running slow and short two to three times a week. After four weeks, he competed in a half-Ironman with no training, but it’s only now that he’s starting to ready to tackle the next challeng. After running across the . last summer, he took six months off with only a few very casual, slow, short runs – until he felt ready to go again. “I just didn’t want to run,” he said.
