Returning to running and mountaineering after some years off. From Bombay, but lived in Seattle more than half my life.

How long have you been running and do you have any bucket list goals you are motivated to accomplish?

I started running in high school. I wasn't athletic at all before that. My grandfather, an avid sportsman, goaded me into starting. On my first day I ran all of 50 yards, and then walked back, feeling proud of my accomplishment; but eventually I was doing 5K at a 6:50 pace. Wish I had sought some actual coaching and done more races back then. Well, time to make up for it now!

How did your 2018 go as far as running? Any highlights that you'd like to share?

Did my first half marathon in 2017, the Seattle RnR, at a respectable sub-8 minute pace. Looking forward to another one!

Do you have any running goals for this year? Any races on the calendar for you?

Hope to do some more half marathons; maybe the Seattle RnR again and the Vancouver Half.

What’s the best way to get you to show up for one of our group runs?

Jet lag :)

We’d like nothing more than to have you joining us for runs. How can we best support you in helping you get the most out of running?

I can't imagine anything better than the wonderful welcoming supportive spirit of this awesome group.
