A very momentous day, as I crossed the 1,000 km mark in the state of Rajasthan after running for almost a month. I am super happy for achieving this, but it's still a long way to go as I have to run more 5,000 kms of the Golden Quadrilateral.

I am gratified to see my journey getting covered in two local newspapers in Rajasthan. It is really great because this will help my mission of spreading awareness and raising funds for the cause of women empowerment and hopefully after reading about The Great India Quadrilateral Run, more and more people will take up running to lead a healthy life.

As I am reaching closer to Delhi the weather is getting colder. Today when I started from Bhawanipura the temperature was 14° C resulting in a slower pace than usual. I completed 35.05 km in 5 hrs and 16 mins and reached Bhilwara.

On my way had yummy Aloo Parathas soaked in oil (which I don't mind because my dietitian suggests I need to intake as much calories as possible). ;)

I am super excited for tomorrow's run as I will complete 1,000 km of 'The Great India Quadrilateral Run'. I would like to thank everyone who has supported me and ran with me so far, it is because of your support and belief I am getting stronger, faster and performing better. #TGIQR #MichelleKakade

The Great India Quadrilateral Run is about to complete a month and today is the 28th day of the event. Today I completed 35.29 km in 5 hr and 13 mins, ending the stage 25 just outside Chittorgarh.

As we all know Chittorgarh is famous for the Chittor Fort built in 7th century by the Mauriyans, with my team I will visit the fort and take some time off the run to enjoy the beauty of Chittorgarh. 

This run is also to help raise funds for the cause of women empowerment in India, so if you wish to help me raise funds for the cause please visit my crowdfunding page: #TGIQR #MichelleKakade

Today, after a rest day in Ahmedabad I continued my run again from the outskirts of Ahmedabad at 5 in the morning. I am completing my 35 km distance much quicker as the days go by and feeling much more confident. Thanks to all the support and blessings from everyone.
