You gotta fight your battle!

There is some magic in running. Today, I was not feeling well in the morning. When I got up, I could feel pain on the left part of my body. My left leg was feeling like I should give it rest.

Last night, I had come back from work pretty late. It was 10.15 pm when I entered home. And

by the time I went to bed, it was 12.05 am.

In the morning, I got up at around 7:30 pm. I always want to get up early in the morning. I like to write my daily journal. Its a habit now. So, no matter what time I get up, I get to my desk and write.

Then, I like to get my sons ready. I like to give them bath and get them ready. Its more out of choice than compulsion. I enjoy this activity. And even they do. So, they pull me to bathroom.

I was not exactly feeling like running. But, this is an itch now. I don’t feel good if I don’t go out and run. So, I followed my heart and went out for run.

It was 8:15 am by now. I got into my shoes and headed outside. Getting up from bed to getting outside is a struggle. Every day, I face hurdles. Just like you. You give up. I don’t.

The real battle is not running for the next 40 mind. The real battle is getting to the tracks. Most of us just give up before hitting the tracks.

So, my dear friends, don’t give up your fight. Fight and liberate yourself.

myself

hi, this is Sanjeev. an avid runner. I simply love running today. I am 41. I have started running regularly 2.5 years ago. These 2.5 years have been like a PG course. I learned more about fitness and health. and about myself. than ever before. I became the biggest discovery to myself.

so how did this happen?

On Jan of 1, 2018, I took a resolution:

to run 1800 km. And I did finish it with flying colors. I not only ran 1800 kms but far exceeded it. In the year 2019, I have run more than 1300 km so far. This is September starting.

I became a discovery to myself. In the first place, I never knew I could do it. I have never had a sporting career. I was doing it for keeping myself fit. 1800 was a goal not to achieve. But, to remember, “if you aim at stars, you at least touch the sky”

During this process, I have discovered many gems of wisdom. On health in general. On running in particular. Here I am to share all that and take you on my onward running and “living healthy” journey.
