Here’s the journey on how I got from Goal setting to go-getting in the 15th edition of Tata Mumbai Marathon.

Improve on my previous best Marathon timing of 03:53:06
Go for a sub 03:40:00 Marathon (missed this one by 3 minutes and 43 seconds)

Completed 73 out of 76 planned sessions and skipped 3 Long Distance runs.

Although I missed a Goal this year, I achieved another.
For me it’s not just about achieving goals – that is something I can always try again and again. More important to me is – to be better than I was yesterday.

A failed goal is success in progress.

It feels good when you Run Hard and Finish Strong. I finished the Tata Mumbai Marathon 18′ in 03:43:43 beating my previous best by 9 minutes and 23 seconds.

Now it’s time to recover, celebrate and plan for the next year.

Comments 2 Standard

After completing 70 training sessions in the last 16 weeks I feel strong 💪🏻, confident 😎 and happy 😃

I started my training in the month of October, working on a sub 03:40 marathon. The journey since then has been challenging and my results exceptional. 🤩🤩🤩 I have worked really hard on my running form, pace and endurance and I feel proud about it. 😬

With just one week to go for Tata Mumbai Marathon, 2018; I have butterflies 🦋 in my stomach, my mind wanders 🙄 and I’m feeling the nerves. 🤭

However, I know one thing for sure, no matter what happens, I’ll put my best and enjoy the run. I will make sure I smile all the way to the finish line.

Wishing you ALL THE RUNNERS very BEST. Do well. Finish strong. 🤞🏼🤗

​Finishing a Full Marathon always seemed impossible, but only until it was done. Now, having completed it successfully, it feels very much like being on top of the world.

It definitely is one of the best feelings ever and with that finally I’m able to check one long awaited goal in my bucket list.
