“I often hear someone say I'm not a real runner. We are all runners, some just run faster than others. I never met a fake runner." - Bart Yasso

Team Ultra again challenged the blazing sun & the soaring high temperature & successfully completed 80k run in a single day during "AgniNakshatram" :)

The running team was well supported by cyclist, who are provided the much needed hydration & company to the runners.

Sharing some important tips for the new runners which will aid them in becoming a regular consistent runner.
  1. Invest in the right pair of running shoes.
  2. Go for distance rather than time - slow it down, be patient, and don't worry about your pace.

  3. Remember that rest days are training days, too.

  4. Join a running group.
  5. Make running a habit, even if that means getting out for a few minutes per day.

  6. Build mileage gradually.

  7. Don't dread taking walk breaks. 

  8. Keep a training log.

  9. Mix in cross training to supplement your running.

  10. Set small, achievable goals. 

  11. Remember that you are a runner.
10*10 series completed the 15th Series, thereby piling up 1500 kms of running & going strong to touch the 2000 km very soon.
