Manmeet Kapoor – Journey to Fitness

Here’s an inspiring story from 100 day participant Manmeet Kapoor. From having a bad heart condition to becoming what he is today, a happy and motivated runner, its been an amazing journey. Check it out below in his own words.
I suffered an heart attack in 2014 at an early age of 33 years, with an artery being 100% blocked and other two were having 40% and 50% of blockages. I had undergone an angioplasty and was fixed a stent to open up the blockage.
At that time it seemed to me that life is finished as I was unable to perform any physical task. Physiologically also I was very weak.
Slowly, I started to walk and tried to rebuild my strength. But my biggest drawback was that i always use to have a very low HDL (good cholesterol, which protects our heart). It was always around 21-22. I tried many medicines and advises of doctors but nothing worked.
In 2016 I heard this 100 Days Of Running challenge. I got myself registered for that and successfully ran all 100 days. It was quite motivating and helped me to attain a habit of running. At the end of this challenge I got my blood sample tested and to my surprise my HDL increased to 39. What medicines and doctors were unable to do, 100 Days Of Running did to me. I had maintained the habit of running till date and have registered for 2017 edition also. Lets see what transformation will be done in the body this year.

  1. I always knew that running is good but as I am overweight and had broken my ankle and knee previously in October 2015, I always kept myself off the field. Last year I heard about the event on its 3rd day and then I completed my 100 days of walking (running was off my thoughts after that fracture).

    Your piece has made me confident that this year I had done the right thing by taking the challenge.

    Thanks for inspiration and sharing your experiences.
