“Sports were like a lifestyle to me from childhood. There were times where I was more anxious about sports meet in my school than the exams that are supposed to happen the next day. I was very much attached with running and volleyball. With multiple medals and trophies in 100 and 200m sprints I entered high school where too much concentration was put on studies rather than physical activity. My sports life had vanished. By the end of high school I got interested in martial arts then I joined a karate school, to learn and practice the style. But then within a year my college life started and I was put back to the studious life which later became the couch potato lifestyle.

Now that my running life was literally over and a huge break in karate, I was clueless where to restart again. That’s when I was introduced to a local running group. From 2019 they motivated me and guided me to train and run a 10km running race and made me finish in under 45 mins.

I feel more active and alive everyday after that fresh morning run, long ride on the saddle, amazing workout sessions on the beach side. And in every activity there was a group of people ready to push me to be my best. Remember together we go far.”
