Former supermodel and fitness freak Milind Soman took the internet by storm by making announcement of his new fitness goal — running barefoot from Ahmedabad to Mumbai.
The fitness icon who celebrated turning 50 last year by participating in the gruelling Ironman race in Zurich, began his 570-km Great Indian Run on July 26 and covered 67 km on the first day itself to reach Anand. The next day he covered 62 km in extremely humid conditions.
A latest video shared by The Great Indian Run’s Facebook page shows, Milind Soman’s 76-year-old mother joined him during the final leg of the marathon. She ran barefeet, wearing a saree, alongside Soman for a while.
The ultra-marathon ends today. Great going, Soman! You are an inspiration.
Sports is education too
Give sports its due importance.
