Fabulous @ 40 !!!
Vidya D'souza- Pinkathon Ambassador
I feel so honoured to release this 8th edition of Pinkathon@Home! Newsletter with a unique theme—Fabulous@40!!!
When I first read about Milind Soman, our Chief mentor completing the Iron Man Triathlon in 2014, I decided the very next moment that if the man at 50 can do it, then why can't I? When I further witnessed his leap of 100 Miles in 2016, I truly started believing that humans are limitless and can do anything they believe. I then got and still am associated with this great movement called PINKATHON since 2016. I once met one of my training girls who was made to wear a saree by her mother-in-law so that she would not run with us.
That gave me the inspiration of running a 100 Miles in a saree from Mumbai to Pune to give a message to those women who are uncomfortable or cannot wear fitness gear to run.
My dear friends, yes, you can run in anything. You just have to move out and challenge yourself to run!
Running was just a normal stage in my life and all these experiences associated with it became part of my regular life even when I was approaching my 40s. I never realised how being physically active helped ease my 40s changeover with such smoothness and seamlessness. I often heard from my friends and families praising and complimenting me for looking younger by the day!

VIDEO OF THE WEEK!
We can't always look young or stay the same forever like we did when we were in our 20s. With time, our bodies change, our mentality change, and our approach towards things change as well. But what stays the same is how we let others perceive us. Even today, in our 40s, we care too much about what people say, what they think about us, which is honestly quite draining.
If we start creating boundaries, start pushing out the negatives, and focus more on things that help us grow, the wrinkles won't become less, but half our worries will surely disappear.

Hi, Fabulous@40's Pinkies, 40 is the age when women have little more time to take care of themselves as kids
are grown and things around them. So, this is the perfect time to start focussing on yourself and more than that start being active, and there is no better activity than running.
