About me

A father of two darling daughters, running through life one day at a time!

But why GoAnand?
It was the year 2010, and I was running my maiden half marathon at, what was then called, Standard Chartered Mumbai Marathon.

Well, if you have run this marathon, now called Tata Mumbai Marathon (since 2017), you would know that the best public support is right on the most challenging part of the run – the Peddar Road! I was walking over the steep flyover, like everybody else in the 2:30 something finishing range, and ran into a group of teenagers shouting my name “Go Anand, Go!”. Little did I know at the time that they were reading my name from my bib…but it elated me and gave a new zip to my tired legs. I have been looking at an avenue to share such little joys of running, and thus goanand.com came into being!
