2019 was a fantastic year for me in terms of running. Eleven half marathons, two full marathons and one Ultra marathon gave lot of high throughout the year.

In the beginning of 2020, I was looking forward to more action-packed year. But Covid19 ensured that 2020 became one of the forgettable years for all.

Running outside was largely restricted for most part of the year. So long runs were largely out of question. So, I focused on smaller distances to keep up the fitness level both physically as well as mentally.

The below picture shows the number of runs that I did in 2019 and 2020. If you look at the pyramid, the smaller runs hold the base of the structure. I haven’t even included many 1km, 2km, 3km and 4km runs that I did. These short runs provide the foundation for longer runs. Key is the consistency in effort.

If you want to start running this year, go slow but steady.

Start your fitness journey from today. Share you experience with you family, friends and colleagues as you start to feel better every day.

So, what are you waiting for! Pick up yourself out of bed and enjoy a glorious run in the morning.

Remember – If you want to run Marathon, take one step at a time.
