Please share a brief about you and your journey as a teacher and runner.
My fitness journey started 3 years ago with a walk. I was not sure what to expect but I did know something good was going to come out of it. The journey of being fit takes a lot of dedication and patience and I had to mentally prepare myself to get into a warrior's mindset. I started running over time and soon I fell in love with the process of becoming a better, fitter version of myself. Running soon became a regular habit and I started participating in various marathons and running events.
You have been an expert in fitness, tell us more about how it started and what was the motivation.
From starting off as a beginner to being a podium finisher in more than 13 marathons it has been quite a remarkable journey. My inspiration towards getting better continues to grow and I am glad to say that this reflects on the track. I think we all are capable of going above and beyond, all we need is a start.
One reason that you will give to every young person to exercise and maintain fitness.

How do you balance between all the three aspects in your life i.e. being a mother, runner and teacher at the same time.
For many athletes, this is a significant challenge. When available time and energy are limiters, it can sometimes be overwhelming to successfully balance each of these aspects of your life. Many athletes are challenged by it and often feel overwhelmed. While it is certainly not easy and will take sacrifices in some areas of your life, the feat is possible. At times it feels like your mind is racing as you juggle priorities. Maybe you feel a touch of guilt when one priority ranks higher than the other. But with time management, and by deciding your priorities according to the situations, we can ,manage everything nicely.
