"Trust the Process," says India Book of Record Holder

Nidhi Tuli

Nidhi Tuli was borns and brought up in New Delhi. By profession, she is a banker with 10 years of work experience and is currently working in Mumbai for the last 6 years. An extrovert who loves exploring hidden places and enjoys throwing colors on paper and adding music to her life.

She shares that she was part of an NGO called Mentor Me India. They asked all their mentors to volunteer in fundraising for the NGO and run a race in Tata Mumbai Marathon. She raised 25K with the help of her friends and colleagues and ran her very first 10K in 2018. She loved the vibe of Mumbai people stepping out on the road on a Sunday morning and motivating all the runners to finish the run successfully. This emotion motivated her to do Half Marathon next year and there was no looking back since then. 

Trust the process. Do not compare your progress with others. Everyone takes their own time to rise and shine.
