Last week we introduced you to our Ambassador Jaan Bathe, who shared with us his journey to becoming an avid runner. The 39-year-old paramedic discovered running through a key experience and has since then only taken off his running shoes to sleep. If you haven't read the first part of the interview yet, feel free to do so here (insert link). Today we talk to Jaan about how he keeps himself motivated and what goals he still has.
As a paramedic, Jaan Bathe works 12-hour shifts, volunteers with the volunteer fire brigade, is a husband, father of two young sons and within a year, the 39-year-old has turned his attitude towards running upside down. The story of our Ambassador Jaan inspires and motivates in equal measure.
VirtualRunners is keen on supporting under-represented organisations and strong personalities on their journey to take on the world and create a social movement. That´s why we asked 5 empowering questions about para table tennis to Sonu Gupta from India, who we sponsor. He is one of the first players in that category in his country, started a para table tennis movement unknown before and is now competing in international championships against normal bodied and other para table tennis players from his wheelchair!
