Mark of a champion athletes
(Rajesh after his First 50 M Run)
(Anuradha singh after her First halt Ironman)
In Past couple of weeks 2 of my friends completed Triathlons. They have been tremendous inspiration to whole range of athletes in Silicon Valley.
Whats special about it?
He started learning swimming in Winter 2003 and by Fall 2006 he completed Ironman Canada swimming 2.4 milesm 114 mi bike and a marathon in 16 hours!!. And completed his first ultra marathon 50 M as a casual long run.
She learnt biking in may 2006 and open water swimming around the same time and Nov 12th she swam 1.2 miles, biked 56 miles and ran 13.1 miles under 7 hours at half-Ironman, Florida. On top of that she is a mom of 2 sons. scheduling training for such distances is a incredible effort.
Hats of to their determination, they are constant source of inspiration. Ofcourse great support from their respective families ensured dedicated training.
Congrats you folks. you Rock.
