We are nearing the end of our extraordinary #100daysofrunning challenge.
Sunday is Day 100, and amongst all the thousands of runners who have forced themselves to get out there & run day after day, despite the cruel heat, the monsoon rains, and the killer humidity of our Indian summer, no-one is more deserving of recognition than Samir Singh. aka The Faith Runner.
Here is the link to a blog post I wrote about him on Day 88 of our challenge.
This is a man who is already in the record books for having run 100km for 96 consecutive days.
When he completes his unbelievable feat of endurance in Mumbai on Sunday, he will have run 10,000km, which is 1/4 of the world’s circumference.
And yes, it is “will complete”, I’m quite sure.
We all have total faith in our Faith Runner.
One of my ASICS Running Club friends, Ripu Daman, is in Mumbai on business and so ran with Samir this morning.
He shared this video with us, and it’s wonderful to know that a man who has taken on such an amazing physical challenge will be also be running here with us all in Delhi in December at the Super Sikh Run.
But for the moment, just think.
There may well be “only” 4 days left for this challenge, but that still means a staggering 400km for Samir Singh. Almost 10 full marathons…
