My way of being healthy is to pursue the running exercise.

I am joining Saffola #ApneTareekeSeHealthy initiative and sharing my ways of being healthy in association with BlogAdda.

In my recently published blog, I have mentioned my way of being healthy and now in this post I am going to share my other way of being healthy. When I was in college, I used to watch the news about sports. One day, I saw a news slot about marathon runners and it was amazing to know how these athletes develop such good stamina for long distance running. As I was busy with my studies during the college days, I could hardly find time to wake up early in the morning. I never used to wake up before 8 am in the morning as I used to study late night for most of the times. Even today, I could hardly manage to sleep early, but I try my best to wake up early. If this does not happen, I then try my best to not miss out the morning running exercise even if I wake up after 8 or 8.30 AM. :-) So in that marathon running news slot, I saw no Indian athlete as a winner or even a runner up as a long distance runner.

A few months ago, I saw one promotional advertisement about the marathon running and I decided to enroll myself for it. In my college days, I remember that I had completed 5 KM running during my academic physical activity session. For that I had practiced only for 5 days. And when I watched the marathon advertisement, I was very much excited to enroll for the 10 KM Run and I did not tell any of my friends about it. The marathon was near about 1 month and I decided to practice hard so that I take very less time to complete the running.

After enrolling for the marathon, I decided to start practicing running and on the first day, It was very hard for me to complete even 1 KM of continuous run. On the next day, I woke up and managed to complete 2 KM run and so on I kept on stretching my limit each day. After 20 days of regular practice, I was pretty much confident about completing the 10 K run at ease and I estimated that I can complete 10 KM run in about 1 hour and 20 minutes. I still had 10 more days to practice and during these 10 days, I did rigorous GYM exercises that would help me in running.  Just 9 days before my actual marathon run, one of my friends told me about a biathlon competition in which there were 4 KM running and 7 KM bicycling. Me and my friend, we both registered and I was pretty much sure that I was going to win this race not because I was practicing hard but because I really wanted to win. I tried my best to win, but I was lucky to win the second position and it guided me to earn my first medal of life in the sports activity. Following is the image of it.

After this biathlon race, I kept practicing and just after 9 days I also completed the 10 KM run. Surprisingly, I completed my 10 KM run is about 1 hour and 2 minutes. Following is my certificate of its completion.

In this way, my way of being active, happy and healthy is to pursue running exercise on a regular basis. In the future, I also want to apply myself for the next level of running which is to complete the 21 KM run.
