Ravi Golappagol (Pacer 21K - 2 hrs 05 mins)
When I started running and realized that It is an experience in itself and extremely difficult to write down since it is more of feelings, enthusiasm, and energy. The race is run with your head, not your legs. Legs are definitely involved, but with such a long distance, the mental aspect of the marathon is really what comes into play, making you stronger in all accepts of life. My recent participation was in Pune International Marathon 2022, TSK 25K 2023 and Tata Mumbai Full Marathon 2023. Hence, I believe in Fitness is Fun.
