Birthday: August 5
Current Location: Mumbai – India
I am a distance runner. I love running in different cities and routes. Working out always completes my day. I started running at a very young age were I represented my school. I had always admired running marathons. So I started working my way towards distance running. Sometimes I manage to get on the podium but for me it’s mostly about the performance and getting better every year. After everything it all comes to having a healthy Lifestyle.

Up Close, and Personal
To me, sport is…
To me, sport is the most important part of my life. Without which life would’ve been dull. It has bought me so many opportunities and has set a platform to display what I do best.
On a typical training day,
I do different workouts like interval training, tempo runs, strength and core training, etc. I mostly eat home cooked food which contains high protein and carbs. For training I wear comfortable and breathable clothes and a pair of shoes with tight midfoot hold. I listen to soft music to calm myself before a workout. During the workout I prefer listening to rock music. My recovery is a slow easy run with some stretching and a bottle of Unived pea protein. I cross-train one or twice a week by either cycling or swimming.
My idea of an effective weight training session is
A training session is effective when you finish what you start or have planned to do while doing it with the best form and technique.
The moment when I discovered my athletic potential was
I found my running potentials when I was a kid and I was registered for a road race and did better than many other kids even without much training.
The three biggest lessons I have learnt so far in my athletic career are
1. There are no shortcuts towards achieving your goals.
2. There is always room for improvement.
3. Giving your best is always more satisfying than winning.
Before a big race, I tell myself
