Hi, myself Suresh Dwivedi based at Jaipur, all of 44 years, and working for Resonance Eduventures Ltd as a professor of Chemistry and part of the Jaipur PinkCity Runners group.
Before starting to run,I used to go for morning walk 4-5 Kms daily for many years, but in Feb 2018, one of my friend suggested to run a marathon. For the first time I participated in an event, the AU BANK JAIPUR MARATHON for 10 Kms, and completed it in 51 minutes. I really didn’t know it was a good or bad pace but after that I regularly started running at least for 10 Km daily.
I have now completed my first Half Marathon in 01:49:39 hours which was supposed to be a very good pace for a new comer like me. Before HDOR commencement, I was running in the 50 DAYS RUNNING CHALLENGE where I completed 1240 odd Kms in just 50 days which is equivalent to a Half Marathon everyday…..
When HDOR commenced, I thought about completing at least 1000 Kms, but I just kept on increasing my commitments for running …..
In last 93 days of HDOR, I have completed
- 40 Half Marathons
- 2 Full Marathons (best 04:14:12 hours)
- 3 Times -30kms
- 1 Ultra run-51.3 Kms
In HDOR ,I have completed around 2450 kms in 93 days. This looks like a miracle to me. Just 6 months back, running like this was like a dream and I never thought I could do something like this.
I really thank the entire team of HDOR to provide such a nice platform at least for new comers like me … I thank my younger brother Mahesh dwivedi (a far better runner than me and a good learner ) for being a good company in running …
My would like to share my other recent achievements besides HDOR.
- 3 HMs (best 01:49:39)
- Two 10 KMs timed run (best 50:28 minutes)
- One Full Marathon (04:43:10 hours)
I am going to participate in following events in coming 2-3 months
- AFMC PUNE –FULL MARATHON(12th AUGUST2018)
- LADAKH FULL MARATHON(9th sept 2018)
- ADMH DELHI(21st oct 2018)
Start of running for me was just to take away my mind from certain issues and to get rid of negativeness but now it has becomes a passion for me. I cannot start my day without running at least 8-10 kms ,but due to professional restrictions I run more in evening and long runs on Sundays.
Because of HDOR I am a proud Marathoner and an Ultra Runner …
I suggest everyone to run everyday whatever distance your body can take comfortably, and its really a beautiful and complete exercise !!!
#keep running and keep motivating#
