On 3rd June, 2012, I touched the finish line of 89km Comrades Marathon in Kingsmead Stadium, Durban, South Africa with India’s Flag in my hands and shouting, ‘JAI GORKHA, JAI HIND’.…


SCMM 2012-Run for our National Integrity.

Posted on January 22, 2012 at 15:30 15 Comments

Standard Chartered Mumbai Marathon 2012 (SCMM) of 15th January, 2012 will always be remembered by all the Gorkhas. It was the day, on which 16 Gorkhas ran Half marathon (21km), 3 Gorkhas ran Dream Run (6km) and a Gorkha Girl ran Full marathon (42km) to do our self-expression that ‘We are Gorkhas and proud to be Indians. Jai Gorkha, Jai Hind’. We all ran for a reason.


I did Landmark Forum in 3rd Weekend of June 2011. It was only three days…

Bangalore Ultra Marathon 2011- 7km

Posted on November 14, 2011 at 23:00 27 Comments

I am very proud of myself for running 75km on 13th November, 2011 in Bangalore Ultra Marathon. I love the tag line of Bangalore Ultra Marathon- ‘Its tough, are you?’ Last year I ran, 50km in Bangalore and I said, ‘Yes! I am tough too”. This year I ran 75km and I want to say that I am tougher than Bangalore Ultra Marathon ;-).


It took 12hrs 54mins for me to cover the distance of 75km. For Ultra Marathon of 75km,…


Nirvana weekend with friends.

Posted on August 8, 2011 at 15:44 20 Comments

My Nirvana weekend started with Girls Only Run (GOR) on Saturday, the 6th of August, 2011, in Juhu Beach.  The GOR of 6th August was just a week ahead of our Independence Day that is why we had decided to tie a tricolour Stole /Scarf / Ribbon around the neck, wrist or arm during the run. I wore a hair band of tricolour.

Take care and run fast!

Hi Roshni,

I donno if you remember, I met you during Pune Marathon 2009 with Giles and Veera. Anyways, your write-up on Pune M 2010 is excellent. I am from Pune yet I was very disappointed to miss it this time since I was out of town. Your write-up helped get over it.

Good luck for SCMM. I'll be there too.

Ofcourse I dont mind. Would have actually flexed my triceps had i known you would post it :D  Yes, I am on FB, will check up all these groups and join too. I am coming for SCMM, doing the half. Are you doing the full this time? I did my first 24K last Sunday with Vivek in hope of running a full at Auroville next year. Have not still registered though :) This Sunday I am in Goa for the half again. So loads of running...

Hi Roshni,

Yes I am interested for long runs starting from IIT main gate, which is close to my place. This weekend I will try to join the long run on Sunday in South Mumbai.
Will you be there ? It could be good opportunity to coordinate for later.

May i have about 20 to 30 minutes of your quality time to complete the attached survey on Runners. The questionnaire is self explainatory but would just request if you would start filling in when in the right frame of mind with some time in hand to ensure responses are given after due thought.
Fair to request this form back in 72 hours? And, it would be nice if the same could be forwarded to other fellow runners, or just share their emails and i will undertake the task.
Cheers - Ashok ( profiling qnaire.doc
