Ep 117: Nirupma Singh on Her Running Journey and Breaking Stereotypes
In this episode of Run with Fitpage, we have Coach Nirupma Singh. Nirupma and Vikas discuss her running journey, how she got into fitness, and a lot more in this episode.
Nirupma comes from Patna, Bihar, and is currently a running coach based in Bengaluru, Karnataka. However, her journey was far from easy. She has had her share of struggles – starting right away from not being allowed to play with boys as a young child to getting married at an early age, dealing with depression, and a lot more. Her inspiring story of determination and grit serves as a testament to the power of perseverance in the face of adversity. She also defied social norms when she started to run – that not being for a year or two, but almost for a decade when she had to go through comments made by people as outdoor fitness activities involving women was not as well-received by the society back then. Today, she continues to inspire and motivate others to take up running and pursue their dreams, regardless of the challenges they may face.
