Pune Man Pravin Zele CreatesWorld Record of Run­ning Bare­foot for 121 Days

Citadel - - FLASHBACK -

City-based busi­ness­man, Pravin Zele has suc­cess­fully ac­com­plished the colos­sal task of run­ning 21km bare­foot each day, com­plet­ing the jour­ney in 121 days. For Zele, it is all about con­quer­ing chal­lenges and over­com­ing dif­fi­cul­ties. Zele would start run­ning early in the morn­ing at 4.30 am and would fin­ish the 21km half-marathons in less than 2.5 hours. For al­most 20-25 days, he com­pleted it within two hours. He would track his tim­ing and dis­tance on his GPS watch, thereby main­tain­ing the track record. To break the monotony of the run­ning, he ran with dif­fer­ent run­ners in dif­fer­ent cities like Satara, Nashik, Mumbai, San­gli and Mi­raj. Tak­ing in­spi­ra­tion from Pravin, many run­ning en­thu­si­asts had joined him in his in­cred­i­ble jour­ney.
