Ep 35: Sustainable Running

Running is a beautiful sport, and we all runners swear by how it helps us.  But we sometimes take it too seriously. Overly obsessed with paces, getting stressed by upcoming races, irregular sleep cycles to accommodate the early morning workouts, constant barrage of injuries and more.  What once supposed to help us to get fit, healthy and enjoyable, becomes quite the opposite. 

In this episode of “World of Running,” our host Aditi Pandya talks with Tina Muir and delves deep into how to run sustainably

  • How to enjoy running, and process of making it a lifelong sport 
  • Get the best from running, both at personal and social front
  • To create a sustainable environment around us for running
