Up till the age of 75 years, walking or running had never been a part of my daily routine. It is the persuasion and motivation by my daughter Alka Vyas and her husband Kishan Vyas that I started regular walking and participating in short distance runs in marathon. My first participation was in 2016 Jodhpur Marathon.

Since that time I have participated in five such marathon including SCMM/TMM and SBI green in Mumbai and three marathons in Jodhpur When Alka persuaded me to participate in 100 days of running I was a little uncertain about the event but once I decided to participating, things went smoothly and I was enjoying the daily run. 100 days running has inculcated confidence in me and I have decided to participate in 10 km group in marathon events. Thanks team 100 Days of Running for making me confident runner at the age of 78 years.

  1. Nice to hear Dr AD Sahib. It is a great inspiration to all of us giving back to the society and how to make oneself fit – the age is no bar .You have proved it again.Gid bless you Sir

  2. मुझे लगा मैं अकेली होंगी जो इतनी उम्र (६५) में इस दौड़ में भाग ले रही हुँ। पर डा पुरोहित ने मुझे गलत साबित कर दिया ।
    अपने बारे में क्या लिखूँ मात्र १५दिन भाग लेने के बाद मेरी एडी में फ्रेक्चर आ गया। बहुत दुख हुआ ४५दिनों तक प्लास्टर में रही। जून के अंतिम सप्ताह में फिर शुरू किया। ५अगस्त तक ५४दिन भाग ले पाई। आशा करती हुँ अगली बार १००दिन पूरे कर पाउँगी।
