How did it all start:
It all started when I returned back from Chennai to Bangalore in the year 2010. At that time, I was weighing more that 85kgs and almost nearing 90kgs. My family and friends started to joke on my heftiness. I have challenged them, that I would be back with my original form 😊. I began to run + walking to keep myself fit. I used to do 5Kms, which includes 2-3kms running and 1-2kms walking. During this time, I was not even knowing about Marathons which were happening all the time at various cities. In the year 2013, I got to know about the running event TCS World 10K from my colleague, so I’ve registered my first 10K along with Venks 😊. During my first 10K run I was literally struggling to keep running and I was thinking that I would never ever run in any of the running events. But at the end, I was very happy that I’ve successfully completed the Run. The happiness that comes after the finish of every Run keeps me motivated to keep running.
Why do you run:
Running keeps me active all the day. It’s all about addiction.
Message to aspiring runners:
Running is all about yourself. Be committed and true to yourself. Increase distance gradually to build your stamina and reduces the risk of injury over time.
Gyan to regular runners:
Keep motivated and focussed and be a regular runner wherever you are. Getting back to shape would be difficult once you lose your form. Never Give Up
Come run with me cos:
I would love to help others to improve themselves.
