Friends, I am looking for your support to finish 121 half-marathons in 121 days with an aim to find a place in the Guinness Book of Records (Application Reference: 170331061220mbhm) and Limca Book of records
Hello Everyone, I am a Pune-based businessman Pravin Zele. I am 37 years old. I am a former state-level hockey player.
I am attempting 121 half-marathons (21 kms) on a barefoot in 121 days with an aim to find a place in the Guinness Book of Records and Limca book of records. I started my epic barefoot journey on 1st of May, 2017 and plan to complete it on August 29, 2017. As I write this appeal, I am on my way to run my 96th barefoot half marathon.
As I mentioned, I was a state-level hockey player. In one of my tournaments, a ball hit me in the eye. Due to an inadequate medical attention, I lost my right eye for good. I am dedicating my attempt of Guinness Record to the cause of ‘No more avoidable blindness’.
I usually start running at 4:00 am and continue for two-and-a-half hours till 6:30 am. My diet mainly includes protein shakes and salads. Many running enthusiasts join me on the way every day. At the end of the day, I share the photos of the people running with me on social media to inspire others.
