On March 26th, we eagerly awaited the highly anticipated One 8 run event held in Bangalore. Thanks to the support of Shathos Sir, we had the opportunity to participate. Our preparation for the event began after the Bangalore 10k marathon, and our mentor, Babu Sir, who is an experienced runner, guided us through a strict training schedule that included strength-building workouts to maximize our performance.
Despite the challenging cold weather, we persevered in our early morning training sessions to condition our bodies for the run. We also made sure to prioritize rest and recovery to ensure that we were physically and mentally prepared to perform our best.
A total of twelve students from Snehagram participated in the One 8 run and demonstrated exceptional performances. During the event, we took the opportunity to take photos, interact with other runners and groups, and strengthen our relationships within the community. Participation in such events serves as a powerful motivator to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle.
Personally, seeing Virat Kohli, one of my favorite cricket players, at the event was a moment of excitement and joy. The One 8 run was an unforgettable experience, and we look forward to participating in similar events in the future.
