Do I run consistently? Nope. Why? I don’t know, not going to use the ‘I’m always busy’ excuse. If I really wanted to run, I’d wake up at 6 every day to do so, that’s when I normally run. So the British 10k takes place in July and I’ve um only just gone and signed up for it. He who has never done any consistent exercise/sport since leaving school, even then I’d find a excuse to skip P.E. I was that kid who chose to be in the library instead of on the track/field. Not for me, I am Indian after all. We’re not the most ‘sporty’ people in the world, continues on the reverse.

When was the last time you watched an Indian team take part in anything other than cricket? Yes, that’s right. Heck, I’m the brown dude that doesn’t even like that sport.I’ve always wanted to be ‘fit’ but could never conjure up the passion and drive I have for other areas of my life when it comes to looking after my body. Always just dreamt of waking up with a Marvel superhero physique but that never happened :(
Running? Why now? All I need is pair of decent lightweight/running sneakers and the courage to leave the house. I think that’s the hard part, actually getting up and out of your home. I always fail there *10 more minutes of sleep*….which ends up being a hour and boom, it’s time for work. This year is all about discipline for me and that doesn’t just revolve around my work. All aspects of my life. Obedience and discipline people.
Of course my running inspiration comes from those around me who are doing da ting – Candice, Sami, Nathaniel and Tahirah to name a few. Follow them on Twitter and you’ll be running a week or so. Trust.
I haven’t actually talked much about the marathon, feel free to click the links above for more information. I’ve blabbered on too much. Time to go do this 5k run around East Ham. Pray for me.
UPDATE: I wrote the post on the train around 2pm. I managed to do the 5k slowly but surely! Baby steps yo.
