Ms. Bindu Panchal
Initially I used to walk with my friends for how much ever distance that I could with no sense of competition or improving myself. Later on to test my limits I decided to register myself for 21 km Mumbai marathon in 2006. As I started practicing for my run my knees tend to get swollen, however I did not give up and completed my marathon in 3:8hr by walking. I still remember the immense happiness that I felt on completing my first marathon. In 2008 I came to know that I am a thalassemia minor due to which my haemoglobin level always used to stay low, I overcame this with proper medication and diet. After that I have never looked back and my hunger to challenge myself has never stopped. Later, by under taking structural training with Kaushik Panchal I have successfully completed Full marathon as well as Ultra marathon.
Below mentioned are some of the races that I have completed so far.
- Participated in 15 half marathons with 5 Satara hill marathon.
- 5 times full marathon.
- 3 times Ultra runs (more than 50 Km).
- Podium finishes:- 4 times 10km, 25km Kolkata marathon, 21km Bhopal marathon and in Bangalore Ultra marathon.
