Create A Big Dream And Go For It

This is what I had written yesterday to all my email subscribers. Just a random thought of inspiration. Then while running today I thought of sharing it on the blog as a post. Hope it makes sense! Do comment below. Hello there, Weekend is coming! I like how it sounds like “Winter is coming” from the Game of Thrones. So, thinking about that weekly long run, huh? Do it, as I told you in the previous newsletter. It helps...

Nike has recently announced that a trial called Breaking2 will try and break the barrier of running a marathon, 42.2 km, in sub 2 hours. WOW! But is it a reality or just a marketing gimmick?

The current world record in a marathon is by a Kenyan, Dennis Kimetto, with a time of 2:02:57 at Berlin marathon in 2014. But there are lot...

Rambling About the Weekly Long Run

I will be clear at the beginning only : this post is a rambling about the weekly long runs. It will though have instructional value too! Marathon and races beyond that distances are tough on the body and mind. Before the body mostly it is the mind which buckles down first. The body takes care of itself if the mind is trained adequately. The distance is daunting. Running for a long period of time on weekends i.e one hour, two, or six...

Hope you all like the video and please to give your valuable feedback, so that I...

As the year is coming to an end, take a step back and ponder about the spent time and make some promises to yourself to make the life as exciting as possible because it only comes once. As they say...

100km of Tribute

Fun is the opposite of misery. Fun is the essence of life. Fun is a state of mind. Thinking of fun takes my fickle grey matter to think of only one thing i.e running. My interest of fun fluctuates with each passing year and season. Come winters, I want to go scuba diving in Andamans. Come summers, I want to go hiking in the mountains. Sometimes it is rock climbing or skateboarding. But always at the back of my chameleon brain is...
