She says, “When I went to register, there were some raised eyebrows. They thought I would be part of the Dream Run or shorter distances, but I am determined to give it my best shot.”

Talking about her preparations, the actress says that she has been training hard and wants to test her endurance. “I began running during the monsoon last year. I used to follow several exercise regimes, but I find running spiritual now.”

Turns out the actress was inspired by Amit Sheth’s book, Dare To Run. “It was a big motivating factor for me. I recommend running to everyone. It can do wonders for your life.

When I ran the first time, my trainer Princeton, who is an athlete, told me you are exactly like the others, but gradually you make peace with yourself and find your groove. I have had my share of injuries and have Dr Shyamal who specialises in such injuries on my speed dial.”

Neha hopes to complete the targeted run and even if she does not -- at least she tried.
