Shalini & Rajesh conquer City2Surf!

Posted by on 12 December 2016 | 0 Comments

I love walking and when I arrived to Australia I found ample parks and bushland for my walking leisure. Another thing which fascinated me was various walking festivals held all around year and one in particular City2Surf got me allured. As City2Surf and I were born in same year we are sort of a birthday buddy. However my acquaintance with City2Surf started at the age when the life begins :-) And I promised myself to keep this relationship till forever albeit my fitness level keeps up with age. Therefore to build my fitness level, I joined MBM in 2013 on six week trial.

I really liked the class structure and early morning timings at Epping Oval. In 2014 City2Surf I managed to scrape off 24mins from previous personal best and I was so thrilled. I found a new love for running which I have never done before in my life. I started with some running in the class and then incorporating little by little in my walk routine. I got a running assessment done with Kaz to understand running techniques. I still have a long way to go until I can run the whole City2Surf however I am hopeful. In 2016 I joined the Running Basics workshop with my husband Rajesh Kumar to motivate him to include some run in his walking routine. He is an avid walker, can walk for hours but it's still work in progress to persuade him to join the group classes :)
