Future Running Plans – UTMB 2018 So, as per the plans, I had to do two 100 kms races to earn 8 points to qualify for CCC UTMB 2018. Now, I could have done one 100 km race in February and the other one in October or December as per the race calendar here in India. But...

Being Vegan Helped My Ultrarunning

I get this almost on daily basis, HOW DID BEING VEGAN HELP YOU WITH RUNNING ULTRA MARATHONS? I ran my first ultra marathon in 2015. It was a 100 km. Race Report – Bhatti Lakes 100 km 2015 I can safely say that I was a bit naive about the training then. I knew that I needed to run a lot but safely, of course, to not to get injured. I ran increasingly more and started developing a weekly bout of cold and cough. Go to the archives...

Beer And Ultramarathon

  I love beer! And I love running! Almost any ultrarunner will say this. Ultra marathon is someway synonymous to beer, right? I used to be a whisky drinker some years before I dove into long distance running. The time I was training for my first 100 km race, somehow, organically I will say, became a beer drinker.
