Taper-time!!!!!
Oct 15, 2016 by Vipul Singh

Today, I conquered 20.6 miles, my longest run ever with this amazing group of friends. Now, it's time to taper off, and allow my body to recover from everything I have put it through in the last 2 months.

With race-day coming up in 3 weeks, it's time also to focus on the great cause that I have been associated with. I have heard so many stories, both of optimism and sadness, from friends and families of people who have had to deal with cancer. And at the same time, I have felt inspired by people who have themselves battled this brutal disease, beaten its ass, and devoted themselves to running for this cause. 

If you'd like to help in this fight and support research against blood cancer, please make a donation on this page. Thank you.

Lets kick cancer's ass
Sep 24, 2016 by Vipul Singh

Today, on a fantastic morning in New York City, I ran 25 kilometres, all over Central Park, and along the Hudson River. 

At the Group Training Session, our head coach, and one of the most wonderful and knowledgeable running mates ever, spoke about how she had lost relatives to cancer, and how her 5-year old son had dreamt of beating cancer and how she inherently knew that he was anxious about the probability of having to go through it himself.

It served as a great reminder of why we run. Of course, there's glory in doing a marathon. But there's also a huge cause. We run so that we can have a cancer-free future, one where little kids don't have to spend days in anxiety. So, my friends, please help me fight this brutal disease by making a donation on this page. Your kindness will be greatly appreciated not just by me, but also those people whose lives these cures will save. Thank you.

7 weeks to go, 13 miles to go
Sep 21, 2016 by Vipul Singh

This weekend, I ran with my besties along the Charles River in beautiful Boston. 13.5 miles on a scenic route full of bridges, followed by a sailing trip and then a 10-mile hike in the White Mountains on Sunday. 

Needless to say, I had an amazing weekend, and am relishing every moment of training towards my first marathon.

A 9-miler with 9 weeks to go
Sep 03, 2016 by Vipul Singh

For today's long run, we conquered Central Park, and its monstrous Harlem Hill. I'm upto 9.6 miles now, and am progressing as per my revised schedule. No photos today, sob sob, but here's one I took during my 6-mile run in the rain on Thursday morning.

Until now, I had been heavily focused on strengthening my glutes, since they were the root cause behind my IT band injury. This week, I started working on my core strength, and boy, it's tough! This week also brought an end to the NYC parks program that had allowed me to run in swimming pools for free throughout my recovery. Best alter-gravity treadmill ever. 

Next weekend, I'm planning to do my longest run ever. Here's to moving forward! :-)

The Comeback Run
Aug 28, 2016 by Vipul Singh

Having been sidelined with an injury for 6 long weeks, I finally returned to running the long miles with my team this Saturday, the 27th of August. We ran over to Randall's Island from Central Park, and had a great time, as you can see from the numerous pics we took :D

I did 7.5 miles, and am hoping to gradually increase this mileage week after week, until I am ready to run 26.2 miles in November.
