Running is often the best part of Simran Jeet Singh’s day, the time when he feels most free. It’s when his best creative thinking happens in terms of his writing, resulting in his new book, The Light We Give: How Sikh Wisdom Can Transform Your Life. In it, he explains how the Sikh teachings that he was raised with can contribute to a happier life. He’s drawn on them to counter the racism that he’s encountered as a turban-wearing, dark-skinned, first generation American, but they can help everyone move toward positive change.

Check out the Pushkin Industries x Tracksmith new podcast, Legacy of Speed.
When two Black sprinters raised their fists in protest at the 1968 Olympic Games, it shook the world. More than 50 years later, the ripple effects of their activism are still felt. In this new series from Pushkin Industries, get to know the runners who took a stand, and the coaches and mentors who helped make them fast enough — and brave enough — to change the world. Hosted by Malcolm Gladwell.
