Nambiar, who runs in the 65-70 age group clocking wining ( gold and silver) timing. A businessman by profession and runner by choice, he trains for three days of the week with his trainer and has been in “love with running since 2008”. “My family gets worried and panics when I run the 42.2 km full marathon — where he won gold in 2015 (Mumbai) — but really I see running as a meditation.

There are so many phrases popping up in your head when you begin chatting with P.K.N. Nambiar. Nambiar, who runs in the 65-70 age group clocking wining ( gold and silver) timing. A businessman by profession and runner by choice, he trains for three days of the week with his trainer and has been in “love with running since 2008”.

“My family gets worried and panics when I run the 42.2 km full marathon — where he won gold in 2015 (Mumbai) — but really I see running as a meditation. Running a full marathon is no joke and I have never thought about my age between all of this. Of course I began late; taking up running seriously only eight years ago but that hasn’t stopped me from giving it my all. Winning marathons has never been my goal. I run because it gives me a high,” he says.

“My morning sessions are my meditation. I have no time for socialising, I enjoy getting fit and running has helped me find a great balance. Of course, the added benefit is that I am disease-free. I have none of the new-age diseases including high blood pressure, diabetes, etc,” he laughs.

Delhi has been witnessing a growing trend of those above 50 taking to sports including running, cycling, swimming, power yoga and zumba to “take over the ageing and staying healthy.’’

Gagan Arora, master trainer and founder, Kosmic Fitness, says: “There has been a definite increase in the number of people over 40 and 50 who are taking up running and fitness in a big way. They are more focussed, aware and serious about their commitment to staying fit than many youngsters. There is also a surge in the number of women who are riding the fitness wave. It is a welcome change.’’
