Running in India
What’s the inspiration for this blog?
I started running about 5-6 years back. I decided to run my first Marathon sometime in early 2009 (I had run a few half’s before) and choose the Mumbai Marathon 2010 as my goal. As I was running the Mumbai Marathon street children almost all along the entire route were cheering the runners and I was quite surprised to hear them shouting “Run-India-Run” or “Go India”. That’s how the name happened.
Over the past 5 years & while preparing for this marathon what has really frustrated me is the lack of resources in India (physical and digital) to help runners like me. I hope that over time this blog will help me offer runners in India resources & advise besides allowing me to share experiences on the joy and pain of running in India.
