…e race during the phone conversation with my coach, he asked me to keep one thing in my mind, i.e. ‘Before you take any decision in the race, just think about all the hard work, sacrifices, money, etc. that has gone into the training and reaching the start line. If the decision doesn’t justify any of the above then that decision is not worth it.’ I was damn sure that the accident and my suffering wasn’t as critical or had no chance against my hard work, sacrifices made by me, my friends and my family, and all the money that has gone into this so far.
… time back then, I felt like an alien as I had nothing to talk about with my family or friends. But again, there are no regrets as I think this is natural if you’re chasing your dream and making sure that your focus is 100% in it. And, if it’s not, then it’s not your dream.
