Pacing Time: 2:55 hrs

Name: Girish Visweswaran

#Profile: Girish was introduced to long distance running by Sandeep Madan. While he took up running as a means to health and fitness, he vividly remembers the sense of elation on completion of his first half marathon in 2016. His personal best is 1:44:14 in ADHM 2017. He runs with Kolkata Road Runners and credits them for his maiden full marathon at TMM2019. He has also completed the Procam Slam and has two full marathons to his credit. Girish has completed a number of half marathons since 2016 including all Procam events. He says that he found happiness in contentment while running with a colleague during TSK25K2018 and that’s when he realised that pacing gave him more joy than PBs. Girish imbibed his ethos, espirit de corps and leadership skills from the Armed Forces to which he is eternally grateful. Join him for a happy running experience and if you aim to finish your 25k under 2:55 hrs. His pacing strategy will be mostly at an even pace with positive splits and full of smiles. His fav running quote remains, “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together”.
