This won’t be a very long post, since I am lacing up my running shoes and about to head out to run.
In Delhi’s current 39C summer heat.
And why would I do that, you ask?
Actually you won’t ask, because most of you are runners.
So you get it.
There is a brilliant 100 day running challenge happening online at the moment, and today is Day 33, and I haven’t missed a day thus far and…yes, correct, completely obsessed.
It’s a totally friendly event, with a commitment to run a minimum of 2km per day to stay in the race.
Most of us seem to be Delhi and NCR based, but there is one awe-inspiring man in Ahmedabad who runs the equivalent of a marathon every day. Yup. You read that correctly. 42km every day. I’m speechless.
Here you go, here’s the link.
I don’t know any of the other runners – though there are a couple of people I have met at races – but an amazing sense of community has already built up, as we all post and update our stats every day.
For me, this is the longest continuous stretch of time I have run – does that make any sense? Basically, I have never thus far run for 32 consecutive days. Soon to be 33.
This challenge is amazingly motivating, and makes me (somewhat) ignore the heat.
Anyway, that’s enough dilly-dallying.
Off into the heat I go.
