My running journey started way back 2013, Oct 30 to be precise. Initially it was my weight gain post delivery which motivated me to go for a brisk walk and then to save time I started running. Job and family commitments forced me to pick up time management. I am blessed to have an understanding husband who is also a runner, a caring mom in law and a motivating son.I used to run almost everyday which led to a lot of injuries but my love for running never allowed me to quit running. Recently I turned myself into a barefoot runner. Now, I am a part of the running community of mangalore- Mangalore runner's club ( MRC) where I am encouraged and inspired to set new goals. ...
I am also training under running coach Shreyas Karnad from bangalore.
This is going to be my first 10k run as a pacer in hyderabad and i am super excited about it. My running strategy will be simple. I'll try to maintain my pace of 7 min / km. On climbs I ll not exert much but climbing down I ll be little faster.

Rajeev embarked on his running journey ~2018 when he participated in the Tata Steel Kol 25K. The running bug had bitten him, but unfortunately, it went into hibernation much sooner than expected. It was only during Covid that he realized the importance of health and fitness and picked up the threads from there -since then there was no looking back… right from his daily cardio exercises, cycling, and not to forget the midnight runs After a few months of hard work, I started seeing things back on track..!
With regular exercises in place during 2021-22, he participated in multiple virtual runs which was his motivating factor. Until now has completed over a dozen 10K runs , and running is now his 'My time.' ...
During the last year 2022 NMDC run, in order to improve his speed & timing started following a pacer, which not only helped him complete his run on time but enjoyed every bit of it. So, come join his bus!
Would like to express his gratitude to the prestigious NMDC Hyderabad Marathon 2023 and Hyderabad Runners where it feels great to be a part of this event to help others achieve their goals. Equally delighted to be picked as a pacer although the pacing experience will be new, nonetheless remember to listen to your body, stay mentally resilient and embrace the incredible journey that it represents. Good luck!

A proud mom of two kids, I started my running journey in 2021 when I participated in a 5k run.Thereafter, I joined Alwal Runners, a part of Hyderabad Runners.I signed up for the train and shine event. In Dec 2021, I participated in AHM 10k and after that I trained for HM and ran my official maiden HM in club run 2022.I have raced in several events subsequently. I began running 5k in saree, but after constant encouragement from others, raced 10k and eventually 21k in TMM 2023.
I have placed 10k events as a 90 min pacer thrice.
I love the pacer's role as it gives me an opportunity to meet and help so many newbies finish the 10k smoothly in the given time. ...
My 10k bus is known for camaraderie and bonhomie. I promise the NMDC 10k 90 min bus will be fun-filled ensuring I take all my fellow runners to the finish like just 30 sec short of 90 min. There will be sufficient hydration breaks and the strategy will be to walk/run and enjoy the route together.Read More

Hyderabad has such a beautiful Running course starting from scenic Hussain sagar lake and takes you through Secretariats, ,Raj bhavan road and crosses through KBR National park, you will get into the beautiful Central University Campus and then to Balayogi Stadium. Earlier, I had a wonderful experience pacing Run For Girl Child 10 km run, To pace a 10k run, I don’t start too fast – and aim for even or negative splits. Once we have established our average pace, start the 10K several seconds (usually 5 to 10) slower than our goal pace. Steadily increase the pace until we are running at target pace by mile 3 or 4; then run our fastest in the final mile....
Bottom Line on Pacing a 10K: The rule is to avoid overexerting yourself in the first two miles and aim for even or negative splits. Approaching your run with negative splits will help you steadily expel your energy throughout the race while maintaining a steady pace.Read More
