Why do you run? “To give time to myself”

Today we are Q & A-ing with Mahendra Bisht, a young man from my ASICS Running Club, who also happens to be a neighbour, which is nice.

Always smiling, always cheerful, Mahendra is one of the stalwarts of our group.  A rock solid runner and an all round nice bloke.

The formula in this Q & A is the same. 5 quick & easy questions, so let’s see what he has to say, shall we?

Q Why do you run?

A To stay fit and give time to myself.

Q When did you start running?

A December 2016

(Editor – yikes!  How on earth did he get to be such a fast and able runner in such a short time?!! 😛 )

Q Morning/evening runner?

A Always morning

Q With or without music?

A I run with a group so without music.  You will never enjoy the group run with music.

Q Next running goal?

A Anything better than my PB ie 1:52.  More specifically I am aiming for 1:46 to 1:48 in ADHM 2018 (that’s the upcoming Airtel Delhi Half Marathon in October)

As I said a few moments ago – how did this fella get to be such a fast runner in such a relatively short time?!

I am in awe of those times, my friend.

And here’s the man himself, running along Rajpath, in the heart of New Delhi, during the New Delhi Marathon.

Well done, my friend.
