It is rightly said that fitness and healthy living should be your lifestyle. On Sunday, Mumbai witnessed a huge crowd of fitness lovers. Yes, a marathon was held at the Bandra Kurla Complex in Mumbai. People in large numbers turned up for the marathon. This marathon was organized by Sportman and the run was named Tarblazer 21.1k. The event was well organized and had three running categories. One was the 21km run followed by a 10km run and a 5km run. People of all age groups participated in the marathon and pretty much everyone completed their run in their respective categories. The young and the old, all of them looked fit and were able to complete the marathon with good timing. It was great to see so many people show up early in the morning to be a part of this run. The best thing that happened at the marathon was the rain. The rain God showered His blessings and it truly was a monsoon marathon

The volunteers were really very helpful and each checkpoint on the route had people distributing water bottles and energy drinks for the participants. There was a separate tent with medical assistance as well. I must say, the organizers did a brilliant job in getting all of these things sorted. Every runner who completed the run was awarded a medal and a certificate with their timing on it. I came across a few runners and they told me that it was their first ever marathon run and they thoroughly enjoyed running in the rain. I bet every participant had an amazing time at the marathon. If you're someone who loves fitness but has never run a marathon, I would encourage you to try it at least once. You can start off with the 5km run and judge for yourself. I was one of the runners at the marathon and it was not easy but was worth the effort. But most importantly, I had fun. So what are you waiting for? Keep your running shoes ready and get yourself registered for the next marathon.
