Welcome to a new blog series called “Why do you run?“. I hope to publish inspiring insights from runners I know, on why they started running and continue to do so.
Shravan runs with the Morrisville Run Club (MRC), and that’s where I met him. He’s one of our faster runners, and has the most graceful running form you have ever seen. 🤣
Why did you start running?
I started running when I discovered how unfit I became over the years. I kept running when I realized what I’m still capable of.
What keeps you motivated?
It’s a sense of self worth that comes with the fitness. The fitness (both mental and physical) that running provides is what keeps me motivated.
What is the most important thing you’ve learnt as a runner?
That its never late for the mind to tame the body. That, Running is meditation and another means to get closer to Nirvana.
If you couldn’t run, what would you do instead?
Its hard to say, I would probably bike! I don’t know what else I would do with myself 🙂
What’s your biggest running goal?
Right now, it is to finish my 1st full marathon. Eventually, finishing the Boston Marathon.
