    Description

    Miles to Run before I Sleep is the real-life story of Sumedha Mahajan, a married, professional woman who undertook an inspiring journey as a runner. It is an account of a tough adventure and a motivational story about finding oneself.

    Summary of the Book

    At an age when most women worry about household responsibilities and finances or starting a family, Sumedha Mahajan wanted to take the road that was less traveled by and pursue her dreams. She was born with asthma and had to visit the hospital frequently throughout her childhood. She began running to keep herself fit and prevent asthma attacks, but it evolved into a passion and way of life. Then, in April 2012, she decided to run 1,500 kilometers from Delhi to Mumbai in thirty days. Although it started as a physical challenge in the beginning, it became a mental struggle eventually and pushed Sumedha to her limits. But she did not give up. As she made her triumphant way to the finish line, she overcame not only her physical defects, but also the unreasonable prejudice of those around her, who were certain that she would not be successful in her attempts.

    About Sumedha Mahajan

    Sumedha Mahajan was born in Amritsar. She is a runner, businesswoman, motivational speaker, and writer. She is founder and CEO of a business strategy company called Karta Business Consulting. Mahajan currently lives in Mumbai.

    "It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward"

    The other reviewers before me have summed it up quite well in terms of what the book contains, so there is no point of me going down that road again. This is not just a fairytale story or an accomplishment of just one individual. Her journey reminds us to keep picking ourselves up everytime we see a roadblock/failure be it physical/emotional/psychological and that we are a product of our own limiting beliefs. So it makes sense for every individual in all walks of life to stretch those limits....

    Extraordinary, Brilliant and even more... Superb Sumedha !!!

    Her Conditions and the awkward situations makes even the reader ask the question "she should stop now.. why she doesn't ?" but she keeps it going , going and going...

    She makes us cry, laugh, worry at her situations. Great achievement.

    Wish to join her in a marathon soon.
    Thanks for the goal, thanks for achieving it, thanks for writing this book.
    Will be thankful to you all our lives for giving us the "New Beginning" to start my own miles to run before i sleep !!!

    UNSTOPPABLE!!!

    Its not just a story in the book but a real life example which proves that 'Anything is possible in any condition if you are willing the work for it'. It will give you a sense of infinite possibilities. So don't wait and get your copy today if you want to get more inspiration and more energy to fulfill your dreams. Hope the feminist author writes some more about her inspiring experiences.

    Simply Amazing

    Tera haunsla hi teri shaan hai
    Tera hanusla hi teri aan hai
    Na darna tu aane waali aandhiyon se
    Tu ek bahadur ladki ki pehchaan hai
    The author has proved to the whole world that a woman with her strong heart and a will power can overcome the hardest of the challenges, no matter whether her body approves of it or not.
    There are moments when I cried while reading the book. Felt like hugging this woman, kissing her on her forehead and telling her 'Don't worry Chinu you are going to make it'.

    Taking the road less traveled...

    With simple language and use of poetry at right places Miles to Run before I sleep is one of the most inspiring books on running out there… If you are a serious runner then definitely there is lot to learn, not just techniques but about indomitable spirit and desire to overcome obstacles … Being a women running on roads is a big challenge let alone running in Ultramarathons and more importantly Delhi to Mumbai 1500 + Km long run in 30 days… It’s not just a run to break records but more import...
