 Meet Strong-Willed Marathon Runner Jatin Parikh

Jatin Parikh , is 55 years old and is gearing up for the 42 km marathon scheduled for Sunday. But, what sets him apart is that he is a victim of cardiac problems and is perhaps the first in Mumbai to be running the full marathon.

Six years ago, Parikh underwent an angioplasty after heart blockage. It was a wake up call to a healthy lifestyle.

"Six years ago, I experienced a pain in my left arm. When I went for a check-up, doctors told me that I had a blockage in the heart. I underwent an angioplasty the same year," said Parikh.

"My lifestyle was almost sedentary before. But after the incident, I became a fitness freak," said the businessman. He has been a part of the marathon for the past six years but this is the first time he will be running the full marathon.

"I participated in the dream run for three years first. But with so many people taking part in this category of the marathon, one can hardly run. For the last two years, I have been running half marathons. But this time, I decided to try the full marathon," Parikh said.
