Inspiring Stories #24 – Gaurav Sharma (Pune)

Hi, Gaurav Sharma from Delhi, IT professional started running in Pune since September 2016. Two reasons, due to i have started running. One, imbalance of cholesterol n fatty lever, and two, upset because of sudden loss of my mom due to cancer.

Initially it was tough to be regular at running, every time a sound pinched me, you can’t do it. In Feb 2017, again i have gone through a tough phase of my life, i was shattered like mirror then some where i read “keep running its a great sense of achievement and you’ll feel amaze within you” then i thought really? Lets try.

I started running n tried to go strong this time and i felt like Yeah! its really a sense of some achievement and i was being emotionally fit n health wise too up to some extent.

One day i saw 100 days running challenge on strava group while syncing my runs, i gave a thought, yes! it was really tough to accept this and i convinced myself and pressed button “Accepted”, registered and decided to go minimum 5km every day.

Today my feeling like super WOW, i have completed 93 days with covered distance 700km including 4 HM,s and 1 trail Endurathon 25km and many more 10/15 km runs. I am very thankful to 100 days challenging team to organise this event and this completely changed my life n my fitness level. I feel motivated, confident n deterministic. My fitness is superb.


Apart from this i earned fantastic lovely buddies whom I can’t forget/ leave now. 100 days run n you earned more than 100 lovely buddies for life time. What a offer, AWESOME!

Also, in these 100 days challenge, i learnt more than 100 of learnings not only in running but also view towards life n its upcoming challenges.
My heartfelt big “THANKS” to each n every member of organising committee. Now, i say “No excuses! only work in any challenge of life”
Love you all, 100 days running team for such a great concept.
3 cheers for you. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
