Nachiketa has been a director for the second half of 2021. After her first run, ~0.1 miles down the block, Nachiketa was huffing and puffing and was baffled as to why she could work out in the gym for 2 hours but not run down the block! Nachiketa started to run a little at a time and was proud of herself when she first ran 2 miles. That was in 2008. After that, Nachiketa would run a few miles per month for the next 5 years until she took her first leap and registered for the Blue Bell Fun Run 10k, which she completed in 68 minutes. This brought on a dream that if she could run a 10k after having run her first 6 miles the week of the 10k, then she could definitely do a marathon if trained properly. Nachiketa’s search led her to KARC, which she joined in the spring of 2018. Since then, Nachiketa has completed 3 half and 1 full marathon and is looking forward to running many more. With KARC, not only have she found the discipline to train but also a wonderful group of friends. Nachiketa has been involved with KARC activities, volunteering as much as she can. She is an avid supporter of fitness / active lifestyle and encourages her friends and anyone she meets to take up what they enjoy. In addition to running, Nachiketa loves hiking with friends and visiting new places.
