I am taking part basically because I love running in marathons. Since I like to keep myself active, this run will help me as well as promote a good cause — raising a girl child. The concept of women only marathon will encourage us all in this fast-paced world. For an average woman, running 10 km or even 5 km might be a challenge. Running 21 km is surely a big challenge but I am sure many women will accept it.
I have asked a lot of my friends to run since it is an interesting event and it's for a noble cause. I am really looking forward to it. I am active in sports but I am doing 10 km for the first time. I want to in improve my timing this year.
