 Marathons: Finish To Begin! 

Date of Publish - Tuesday, 1st May 2018

The world obviously doesn’t require graphs or analytical datasheets to mirror the actuality of the miserable plight of the human body. The news age mannequins have in fact started coming in all shapes and sizes to represent the reality of the masses, i.e. the real customer of the market, which is a plus, considering that multinationals have initiated a step towards not endorsing objectionable and obnoxious beauty or body standards, however, this very tactic is a sly showcase of our sickening health habits and standards. At the same time, quite ironically, we also have health freaks, for whom gym is their temple of sanctity. So, the million-dollar question is: what is the balance?

The CEO of the Russian Running Magazine can help us answer the question or at least his Instagram feed will act as testimony. Alex Gulyaev has completed 195 half marathons an 7 full marathons but before you begin to get impressed by his achievements, admire his goals. The man wishes to finish a handsome 1000 half marathons until he breathes his last, and if the solution isn’t already shouting itself out loud, the easiest and simplest hack is running. Yes, you read that right. Marathons are becoming the current debonair approach of the contemporary millennials towards attaining the zenith of a healthy body, mind, and soul. Marathons are long distance races of approximately 42km while half marathons are of 21 km, and while the folks can hold preconceive notion regarding intense workouts, crash diets, the aftermath of man-made machines, etc; simple solution like running can hardly be placed on the table for any debates. Requirements? Shoes, the right spirit, and self-belief. Return? Much more than the investments, any day.

Its high time we, as a community start working for the greater good of a healthy nation. There is arguably no article in the world that can persuade all its readers to begin a healthy lifestyle right away, few of them might scare you by stating the abhorrent reality regarding the poor health status, few of them might provide you #easyhacks but this article is none of the above.

Confucius once said: We have two lives and the second begins when we release we have only one.
So, to begin with, that second life, start by finishing something. Start by finishing a run. Start by finishing a marathon.
