In awe of The Faith Runner
Many of us here in India – and around the world – are taking part in the 3rd edition of the #100daysofrunning challenge.
I am delighted to have been part of all 3 editions – well, the current one isn’t finished yet, so let’s not get ahead of ourselves. FYI, today is Day 88/100.
I wrote about the 2015 & 2016 editions here in this blog, but this is an event that, year on year, has grown to amazing proportions.
When I logged on just now to enter today’s run, I saw our collective distance is a staggering 852,255.49km. And counting.
Every single person who is running this challenge has undertaken a personal journey – to get out there in the brutal heat & humidity of an Indian summer and run, day after day after day.
So it is wrong to single out people for special mention, but having said that, there is one man who deserves whatever is beyond respect. Mumbai-based Samir Singh has set himself the challenge to end all challenges.
To run 100km for 100 days.
Here, watch this video & then tell me you’re not blown away.
Celebrate Samir Singh's exceptional '100km x 100days' running challenge. Watch him run as he makes history. LIKE, FOLLOW, SHARE this ordinary Indian's extraordinary feat!* Those who wish to contribute towards Samir Singh's healthy recovery post his challenge can reach out to the crowdfunding link on Ketto – http://www.ketto.org/fundraiser/thefaithrunner
