    Perfect Practice Makes Perfect: Jonty Rhodes, Former South African Cricketer

    Perfect Practice Makes Perfect: Jonty Rhodes, Former South African Cricketer

    Jonty Rhodes, commonly regarded as one of the greatest fielders of all time, popularized fielding in a sport dominated by batting and bowling.
    His love for India is no secret, given that he has named his daughter, India.
    Jonty is almost 50 but whenever he hits the meadows, he looks like a 20-year old. I ran into him on multiple occasions and each time his enthusiasm, energy and humility amazed me. We had a fun chat where he shared about how he grew up playing sports, his journey to becoming a cricketer, what he thinks of running and the importance of practice.
    This conversation was recorded at the race venue and so you will hear a lot of background noise… It might help to consider it as a purposefully crafted background score for your special listening. ;-)

    Become Positive by Running: Rajeev Janveja, Lemon Tree Hotels

    Become Positive by Running: Rajeev Janveja, Lemon Tree Hotels

    Rajeev Janveja, or Chef RJ, is as passionate about running, as he is about the delectable food he creates, and so it only made sense to pick his brain and find out how one can be a great chef and be superfit, all at the same time. He has launched many quality restaurants pan-India. While delivering his ideas and mandate on food concepts, he also emphasizes a lot on healthy living and fitness. His enthusiasm towards marathons is so infectious that over a dozen team members have trained as pros and are running the circuit, while a large number have taken up running as a hobby to stay fit. 
    Neeraj Dhiman was introduced to running by his girlfriend (and now wife). At the time Neeraj was dealing with a stiff neck and a stiff back which prevented him from playing squash, his usual sport and workout routine but he could run. He started out slowly and now for the past two years he and his wife have been running together.
    Running helps Neeraj to bring focus and awareness to the moment and it’s his time off from the digital world. He loves running to Buddhist chants and as soon as he finds his cadence and rhythm, running becomes akin to meditation for him.
    We grabbed a quick 10 min chat at the Marathon Expo to discover his fitness mantras.
    Please consider the background noise as specially created effects of the Expo for you and plesae don't let it bother you much.
