Until a few years back if I am asked to run long distances I wouldn’t have cared much for it. Nor would have enjoyed it. But since being part of the Run for India program it has become a integral part of my life. While being fit is always been important for me when I run and train now it feels its for a greater purpose. I don’t feel the pain when I am doing a long run for hours together. Even if there is pain I know it is temporary and it gives you the time to think of others who are not so lucky. The benefits don’t stop there, the friends you make over several months of training are worthy to keep for the life time. The most important for me is that it thought me to be organized and adapt the same in many other things in my life.
