Tell us about yourself in a few lines. 

Professor from Kalsekar Technical Campus, Panvel. I am an adventure freak and a foodie with a flair for travelling.

Why do you TRI ? What is your motivation for doing a Triathlon/Duathlon ? 

I TRI because it gives me a high. Doing Triathlons brings life into my life.

Which event are you participating this year at HT 2017 ? How many times have you participated in HT and in other triathlon events? Which is your favorite kind of race?

I am participating in Half Ironman Triathlon at Hyderabad Triathlon 2017. I had participated in Hyderabad Triathlon 2016 also. Have done Half Ironman at Delhi International Triathlon 2017. Also have done Olympic Triathlon at Goa Triathlon 2017. Half Ironman is so far my favourite apart from Open Sea Swimming. I have so far enjoyed completing 6 km open sea swim as a part of Navy Day Celebration 2015 and also 5 km open sea swim as a part of Goa Swimathon 2016 and 2017. Will be attempting a 10 km swim shortly as a part of Delhi International Swimming Championship 2017.

How is your preparation for HT 2017 going? How excited are you for the event ?

Have been keeping my self busy with daily practice of swimming and running along with occasionally cycling long distances.
