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.
