I have always been self-motivating, and it drives me to keep going even in the face of setbacks. I have taken part in various sporting activities in school, and have won various competitions. My pre-athletic-running journey began with podiums & gold medals in school with track and field – 100m, 200m, and 400m races, and then I slowly transitioned into running longer distances with the first Mumbai Half-Marathon in 2004. I have been consistently running (but not racing) the Mumbai Half-Marathons since their inauguration event. Running Mumbai Marathon was a ritual, but then in mid-2014 (after running a no. of HMs in the past decade), I realized that I am spending too much time in the gym with all the weight training and strength building, I was fit and strong – for sure, but I was not seeing an improvement in my running speed and endurance. I always knew that progression beats perfection, and after doing some speed drills and running tests, I had to have a plan to improve my overall running performance. You can say, that’s when I got into serious running – back in 2015. I have run a no. of marathons ever since and have improved my race-timing & performance over the years, one event at a time.

Up Close, and Personal

To me, sport is…

Determination. It teaches me to always put in my best, no matter the odds, and see myself as a winner – make the impossible possible.

The toughest race of my life was…

Berlin Marathon, 2019. With heavy rainfall, strong winds (mostly in the opposite direction), and a sudden drop in temperature. I was drenched and shivering. I got the worst cramps in my quads at 35K mark (It was the first time in a race), and somehow, I managed to cross the finish line with a PR!!!

The most memorable moment of my sporting career so far…

I am far from experiencing my most memorable moment yet. I am taking it one day at a time – and working hard to get there.

My dream starting line is…

My dream is to officially qualify for Boston Marathon and finish it strong.

I nourish my soul with…

Mostly Yoga practice & Meditation at home. Sometimes a day at a beach or sitting by the seashore and letting the sound of the waves nourish my soul.

Unived helps me by…

I am 100% Vegan, and Unived products are a perfect fit for my sporting and dietary requirements.
