The Job
I love my job because the environment is incredibly empowering and very structured. Being a religious runner myself, my company’s founding philosophy of ‘A sound mind in a sound body’ aligns with mine. If I hated anything about my job, I would not have been working here.

The Weekdays
I start the day with my 6K run, since it improves my mood and boosts energy, giving me positive framework before going to work. 50% of my day is spent on working with people and the team discussing the goals to be met and the progress. The day also includes managing relationships and discussing targets with customers. In the evening, I update myself with events and news from across the world.

The Weekends
Running is my passion and I do it regularly. Over the weekend, it is good to engage yourself in a passion that you believe in. I set longer goals for running over weekends. Also during the week, it is hard to give focussed attention to those you care about. Weekend lets me schedule quality time with my family and friends.

The Toys
iPhone and my noise cancellation headphones.

The Logos
ASICS, Toyota, Uniqlo, Apple and Bose.
