Sharing an image, Milind wrote: “Happy 2021 people!!!! @ankita_earthy and I had a great end to 2020 with the Last Long Run from Guwahati to Cherrapunji, climbing almost 5000ft over 120km on 30th and 31st December.”
Adding to him, Ankita too posted on her social media account and said, “Can’t believe we’re actually done with the last long run of the year!!! With all the crazy inclines and crazy traffic from Guwahati to Cherrapunji almost without any hill training. This year has been a lot for all of us. Here’s hoping for a better tomorrow literally.”
After the run, the couple also went on a small trek to the iconic double-decker living root bridge in Nongriat kick start the year.
