Not many know that Sonali Kulkarni, who was last seen in the Sunny Deol-Bobby Deol starrer Poster Boyz, is an enthusiastic cyclist and runner. The versatile actress had participated in a triathlon race last December and is game for the next too.

The actress is proud of getting a medal for participating, and rightly so, because she was approached by Kaustubh Radkar (winner of several marathon titles), to take part in the triathlon.

Sources close to the actress says that she is keen to participate but will have to check the dates of her shoots for upcoming films.

Sonali says, “I love cycling and running, so I would keep posting pictures of me cycling from Khar to Versova or Bandra to Andheri to encourage others. Kaustubh saw them and approached me. Since I like to keep up with my fitness, I was open to it. I had to sacrifice a variety of things. I could never enjoy my Sunday. Every morning at 4.40 am, I would step out, run for 3km and then cycle for 20-25km. I only knew basic swimming, I had to learn freestyle, which was the most difficult part.”

“The race started at 5.30 am, it was terribly cold and I was dreading it. I take a shawl and jacket even when I go to watch a film or a play! Though I was shivering, I managed and my trainer said I was good. We swam for one kilometer, cycled 25km and ran 5km. Though I was used to cycling and running, this was completely different because the roads were steep and we had to go uphill, but I think the adrenaline rush was high. I was afraid that I might have to use the washroom or feel hungry, but nothing of that sort happened,” she adds.
