I’m running the Carmel: Half Marathon Presented by Runners Forum

My goal for the 2013 Carmel Marathon Weekend: My goal is to finish the half marathon in under two hours! The last time I ran, my time was 2 hours and 21 minutes.

Why I run: Running is a great way to keep my body fit and healthy. And having a goal such as the Carmel Half Marathon Presented by Runners Forum is a great motivator for me to keep running!

Favorite place to run in Carmel: West Carmel area around 131st Street and Towne Road. That area has wide spacious sidewalks that are ideal for running and biking.

Pre-race rituals: Stretches and a nice healthy breakfast.

If I’m not running, I’m… : Hanging out with my two daughters, Sakshi and Sanya!

My advice for new runners: Running is a good thing for the body and the mind. All it needs is a little discipline and once you get in the routine, it gets easier and it’s a lot of fun. All the very best!

Why I like living and running in Carmel: Carmel is a great family friendly place to live and grow a family. The schools are excellent and the people are great. Our family is really happy to be a part of Carmel.
