Our institute's, our own, Orthopedic Surgeon, Dr Vijaysinh Patil ran the Goa Half Marathon of 21 km today, 11th December 2016 in just 2 hours 44 minutes.
Just a few months ago, never having any experience in running at all, took up running to lose some weight and become fit. Running soon became his passion as running just for a few minutes turned into running for an hour and then targeting 5, 10, 15 kms.
In the process he lost more than 12 kgs and soon started training for the Goa Marathon. It was a challenge for him as he had not run 21 km before. But it's a proud moment for him and our institute for completing this feat.
We congratulate him for his success and wish him many more in the future.
