I am long distance runner and currently ambassador for Seattle Marathon for last 2 years ( began running in middle school in India where I used to enjoy warm up laps around the field and races during sports day. Running took a backseat during college and work but later rediscovered the love for running when travelling to different European and South American cities and seeing people enjoy their run around beaches and mountains. After moving to PNW and eastside Redmond, passion for running was back in full swing. I started with 5K, 10K’s and then went on to complete 10 half marathons before realizing the challenge of full 26.2. In 2019, I completed my first Marathon in Vancouver followed by the Amica Insurance Seattle Marathon and Boston Marathon.
Long distance running has taken me to several beautiful destinations, routes and admire amazing nature, flowers, birds, trees, trails, changing seasons and expand my love for music, listening to books and podcasts. Energy from running has made me mentally stronger and tough and allowed me to set up an example for my kids to participate in active sports, kid’s marathon, and other outdoor events. My next goals are to complete all world majors and then test myself in an ultra.
