My inspiration for running came from my peers. If they could run Marathons, so could I. These were ordinary people out there, many of my age. I have never been very sporty even when I was younger, thus this was very inspiring. So, from never having run a single mile, I decided to run a marathon.After successfully completing my education (BCom Hons., Mcom, LLB, PHD in Finance) & Having lived a Corporate life ( Ex Banker in ICICI Bank, HDFC Bank and HSBC), I started Running 8 years back and since then, I have successfully finished a great number of Half Marathons Like many in Singapore, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Bhutan, Hyderabad, Chennai, Dehradun, Bangalore, Delhi, Mumbai, Pune, Chandigarh, Jim Corbet etc.
