We are very often told that the decision we take today will shape our future. While that may be true, there comes along a story of Saloni Arora who did not allow one wrong decision to change her life. Instead, she decided to take up running and completely transformed her destiny.
One and a half years into her marriage, Saloni realised that her love marriage wasn’t working out. Even though she was facing emotional and physical turmoil, Saloni never gave up. She took it upon herself to chart up a new plan of action. Saloni started long distance running. This step completely changed her state of mind.
Today, she is a long distance runner and has been doing it for two and a half years. Saloni has participated in Airtel’s half and full marathons, Standard chartered marathons along with others across the country. She met her fiancée and to-be husband — also a long distance runner, during one of the long distance runs. Her #FitToFight story is of a woman who never gave up on life or finding love. She is also a senior marketing manager with the Landmark group.
