#100Days with PinkathonForever – Kamakshi Soni

I can dare to run 100 days!
Its when we all have completed our challenge..I would like to share what I achieved!My goal was to complete this challenge but as I was going ahead towards my target, its unbelievable what I achieved!!!

1.STAMINA:- I used to run twice or thrice a week,for maximum 5 kms earlier but after 1-2 kms I used to start walking as couldn’t stretch more,but now I can run more than 10 kms run continously without even a water-break.!!!!!
2.PACE:-  As the stamina built, my body got used to running daily and automatically my pace increased! Completed 10 kms earlier in 80 mins,which I now complete in 66 mins!!
3.GOING THE DISTANCE:- I was the one who use to run max 5 kms thrice a week with efforts. Also, running 10 kms was only in marathons and even 100 meters more was a difficult part of me but this challenge made my body so stubborn that doing a minimum of 10 kms and max of 18 kms on every weekend is a habit for me now!!
4.CONFIDENCE:-  I gained confidence in running and realized my potential only after this challenge, as running 10 kms was like feeling on top of the world for me, but now I gained courage for running for my first half marathon which I did recently that too in 2 hrs 24 mins 46 sec.This is ultimate!!!
Last year’s Pinkathon was a debut run of 3 kms for me.I never knew within a year, that too in these recent three months of challenge I will be ready to run 21 kms.
Now its my habit to run almost daily that too with minimum of 5kms…for me itself this is unbelievable!!
I TRULY LOVED 100 DAYS PINKATHON CHALLENGE Great respect and thanks to my boss and friend Dilip Gala who inspired, motivated and encouraged me to run.
