Marathon Running

Inspired by Haruki Murakami’s bestseller “What I talk about when I talk about running” I took up this extreme sport with much enthusiasm. I enjoy the rigorous training, dedication, focus and mental strength needed for success. I ran three of the marathon majors over 10 months:

  • New York City 2008

  • London 2009, 2010

  • Berlin 2009, 2011, 2013

  • ULTRA – Lochness; Atlantic Challenge, Cornwall; Thames Bridges 2015-19

Trekking

  • Himalayan and other endurance based treks- Rohtang pass and the cold desert 

  • Bike for BUF Sicily challenge – 300 km in 5 days
