    Arif used to run full marathons quite often. The last one he ran was in Chicago in 1997. He stopped running long distances to give his body a break and pursued other activities such as organized sports. About 4 years ago, Arif started feeling more stressed at work and was going through a tough time in his personal life. Support from his family and friends helped get him through this period in his life but it was his return to running that really changed his life.
