Why am I running at the Vibha event?

  1. To help spread awareness of Vibha and the great work Vibha's volunteers are doing.
  2. I enjoy running, it's a form of meditation for me, along with great physical exercise.
  3. I get to meet great folks at Vibha - volunteers, coaches and fellow runners/striders.  In the picture above are Coach Anu and Coach Rajeev - during one of the practice runs - always full of energy, great attitude, always encouraging us to keep going, and making sure our runs are injury free.  Please find other wonderful Vibha Coaches - Coach Roo, Coach Phal, Coach Bharati, Coach Shiva here.

Sincerely,

Nirat.
