I was a completely professional football player, and my first marathon was through the gym I used to go to. And from then onwards running took over my life.
I was part of the 8 runners crew of the Bombay To Goa Chase run which happened this year in the month if August. It has officially been in the India Books of Records.

Up Close, and Personal

To me, sport is…


On a typical training day,

I eat: dry fruits, eggs, Dal, roti, sabji, curd.
I listen to: a lot of songs.

My idea of an effective weight training session is

a good long run.

The moment when I discovered my athletic potential was

when I was young.

The three biggest lessons I have learnt so far in my athletic career is

1. Never run ultra distance marathons without any practice.
2. Listen to how your body works and responds, running is a long process, it cannot be achieved in one day, so one cannot go all out.
3. Work extremely hard each and every day.

Before a big race, I tell myself

to stay focused and maintain the pace that I have decided to achieve.

The toughest race of my life was

Matheran Endurathon 50k.

The most memorable moment of my sporting career so far

getting facilitated by Milkha Singh for winning a 21km marathon.

My training sanctuary is

Pashan Tekdi.

My dream starting line is

represent India in the Full Marathon distance.

I nourish my soul with

eating healthy.

Unived helps me by…

Recovery Mix and Protein Powder – help me recover fast and effectively with the right amount of protein and carbs intake.

I have chosen to associate with Unived because…

I have been using it for the past 8 months, and it has really benefited me in my running. Right from the recovery mix, to the endurance Gels, to CalDveg tablets, to protein powder, everything has really worked really well with the way my body works and responds.

My favourite Unived product is…
