Vivek Singhal

According to Vivek, "Running an IT company takes me traveling around the world which gave me an opportunity to run on all the continents practically with some lovely stretches like The Great Ocean Road in Melbourne or in the deserts of Namibia, or mountains of Cremia erstwhile Ukraine, or the mud tracks of the Running Village in Adis Ethiopia. Running was always a fun and meditative activity for me, so I never ran for personal best ever and took big breaks from running in between, that prevented injuries of any kind."
