Former supermodel Milind Soman undertakes a barefoot run from Ahmedabad to Mumbai
Former supermodel turned actor Milind Soman is a known fitness freak. But this time, he has undertaken a serious fitness goal for himself of running barefoot from Ahmedabad to Mumbai.

Soman had taken the glamour world by surprise last year when he had celebrated his 50th birthday by running the Ironman race in Zurich. He had to undertake hard training to enroll for the tough triathlon. The Ironman race involves a gruelling 3.8 km swim, a 180.2 km bike ride and a 42.2 km run, and that two within 15 hours.

Now, still in pursuit of fitness, he has embarked upon a 570-km run between Ahmedabad and Mumbai, via Silvassa, for the Great Indian Run, billed as India's first multi-city ultra marathon.

Soman started his run of July 26 from Ahmedabad and managed to complete 67 km on the first day itself and reached Anand. The next day he covered a distance of 62 km in extremely humid conditions.

In his Facebook post he uploaded a video of himself running barefoot on the highway like a casual jogger who is out on his morning run. Soman is expected to reach Mumbai on August 7.

We wish him a safe and pleasant journey. May he continue to inspire people for years to come.
