Why do you run? “To be fit with a fun factor”
Today we are Q&A-ing with Rachna Agrawal, one of the talented young women in my ASICS Running Club.
Rachna, you see, is not only a consistently good runner, she is also a fabulous yogini, often leading our post-training stretching sessions.
You remember the format of this Q & A by now?
5 simple questions, that’s all
So, let’s hear why Rachna runs, shall we?
Q. Why do you run?
A. Running over a period of time has become a major part of my life. It started with a desire to be fit with a fun factor. I’m a social freak and like to make friends.
Though I have been into yoga for quite sometime, the only factor that I didn’t find in it was the fun factor. Being with friends and chatting with them at 5 o’clock in the morning – that kind of fun!
Q. When did you start running?
A. I started running about 3 years ago, when I ran alone, and just before events. I really started formally 2 years ago.
Q. Morning/evening runner?
A. I’m strictly a morning runner. (Actually, I have never run in the evening…)
Q. With/without music?
A. I initially started to run with music, but since I have joined the running group, I love the rhythmic sound of my friends’ feet matching with mine…their illogical but interesting chats…this fills me with energy & I start my days actually happy.
Q. Running goal?
A. I want to grow old with it, and register with my grandchildren for ADHM (Ed: the Airtel Delhi Half Marathon)
Now, how lovely are Rachna’s answers?
“...illogical but interesting chats...” and my absolute fave “ I want to grow old with it, and register with my grandchildren for ADHM.” Rachna, those are such lovely words!
