'Running runs in their family', wrote a fan on Milind Soman's oh-so-perfect and cute family picture featuring his mother Usha Soman and wife Ankita Konwar. The trio attended the first edition of the 'Spirit of Pinkathon' run from Tezpur to Guwahati. "We are not just like this or that. We are born to #BeBetterEveryday," wrote Milind captioning the picture.
Taking to his social media handle, Milind Soman keeps on motivating and encouraging people to run and exercise. A few days back the actor ran 15 kilometers taking the overall distance of the week to 60 kilometers! He said, "need to have an average of 60-70km per week to maintain the level of fitness that I am accustomed to. Can't run every day as I would like, but have got to make the time."
He concluded by saying, "The goal is not a marathon, or Ironman. Out of 24hrs×7days which is 168hrs I need to find 8hrs for myself. That's the goal."
If you know the road, go "barefoot"; if you don't, wear "slippers". But run you must is the mantra of model-actor turned fitness crusader Milind Soman. Soman, in 2017, successfully completed Florida Ultraman challenge triathlon of 517 km which involved 423km of cycling, a 10km swim and an 84km ultra-marathon. Importantly, he was the only one back then who completed the challenge participating barefoot.
"Barefoot running is the natural way to run, that is how our body is evolved to run well. Running is a natural movement and shoes are not a necessity, hence everyone can run," Soman told PTI.
