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.
