There is something magical about running; after a certain distance, it transcends the body. Then a bit further, it transcends the mind. A bit further yet, and what you have before you, laid bare, is the soul.”

Every time I run it's with the mindset that if I die at this race, it's OK."

I run because if I didn’t, I’d be sluggish and glum and spend too much time on the couch. I run to breathe the fresh air. I run to explore. I run to escape the ordinary. I run…to savor the trip along the way. Life becomes a little more vibrant, a little more intense. I like that.”

Never underestimate the power that one good workout can have on your mind. Keeping the dream alive is half the battle.”

The world is actually full of challenges and we need to challenge ourselves. I took a challenge to run that fast. It consumes a lot of energy especially mentally. But I took myself and accepted to be challenged and I challenged the time.”

The Mai Dubai half marathon is being organized next month . Does anyone know about the safety protocols being followed? I can’t wait to take part in an HM, any suggestions / guidance as I am in two minds about taking part in it in the Post covid era . ... See MoreSee Less

Hey Prachi. Hope you are well. I am not in Dubai hence won't be participating in this but I have spoken to the organizer regarding a freelance project and below are some of the protocols that they mentioned ..1) Extended start time window (participants will start racing in waves as opposed to everyone starting together); reduced volunteer numbers across the event; strict social distancing within the start area ( compulsory wearing of mask before and after the race) 2) Contactless medal distribution following the finish line 3) Temperature checks before entering the start area. 4) Refund scheme, should the race be canceled at the last minute. 5) Spectators to a minimum 6) Either contactless aids station or minimum volunteers..

Hi Prachi, please feel free to reach out to the organizers on sports@promosevensports.com or via Facebook Promoseven Sports Marketing They will be happy to answer any questions 😃

It is to be noted that it's a 5km loop.. so even though there is a staggered start... All runners will come across each other in any of the 4 loops.. not sure how they are planning to tackle this

Hi all, looking to add some beginner level hill/elevation training to my running. Any recommendations on where I could do this in Dubai without driving to the base of a mountain? Note, I have so far become very accustomed to running on flat ground so even a slight elevation to begin with is a good start. Thanks in advance. ... See MoreSee Less

Well done doc. Impressed by your discipline and dedication👏👏🥇

Congrats

Good man 👏👏👏

Thanks Rohit, Rameshan and Maxi

Great doc. U keep us inspired

Amazing effort. Can i just ask how people are measuring indoor and garden runs? I’ve got a biggish garden but my Garmin goes mad and doesn’t remotely reflect what I must have run. What are people doing?

Congratulations Hashim. 👏👏👏

Hashim awesome and congrats to your wife too! We will keep motivating each other as long as it lasts

Great job, Doc!
