#100daysofrunning

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.
