Inspiring Stories #21 – Bisr Kaur Jauhar (Chandigarh)

Hi I am sending out this email on behalf of my daughter Bisr Kaur Jauhar aged 12, who is participating in the #100DayChallenge. 

Hi! I started running because my father used to push me to run. Initially I used to dislike running , I used to run mostly on weekends. Gradually running grew a little on me and I participated in a few runs such as the ISB Joyathon (7K), TiE run for entrepreneurship (5K), the Global Shapers Chandigarh run for charity (5K) and the Earth day run.

I heard about the 100 days of running from my dad took this challenge up because I heard about a few of my school mates taking it up so I took it up as well. I started on 29th April and summer holidays were soon approaching. For me to run every day was a challenge enough and to run during holidays was dreary. But like it’s said ‘If you have the will, God shows you the way. My parents had planned a holiday to the U.S. which meant long flights. So during our travel I ran at the stopover airports, Zurich airport on our way to U.S. and Frankfurt airport on our way back which was a lot of fun. Yes running in America was enjoyable as the weather was very pleasant  there. And then finally running in my own city Chandigarh, the city beautiful.

But by now I am used to it. They say running doesn’t get any easier but you get stronger and I feel it too. I feel stronger and move quicker. Now my legs don’t ache as much and the motivation to finish this challenge keeps me going. Running relaxes me. I feel fresher and my tiredness wears off whenever I run. I have somewhere within me developed my love for running and now I don’t detest it any longer like I used to. It refreshes my mind and takes it away from studies and my monotonous routine.

I am writing my story so I can motivate others to take it up too. It’s not like you’re running against anybody, you are running for yourself and challenging your lazy self. It’s not a completion, it’s fun. I would want to stick to this newfound routine all my life. I don’t  know if I’ll be able to stick to it with my exams coming up but from now on I surely would not scorn upon the idea of going for a run to relax.

Finally, Mirror Mirror on the wall, I’ll always get up after I fall. And whether I run, walk or have to crawl.  I’ll set my goals and achieve them all.

Happy 2017!
