Update: 10:44AM POLICE officer Sharmila Ashwin Lata, 36, runs to promote a healthy lifestyle.

Lata says running provides her life with discipline.

"A healthy lifestyle disciplines our lives. It makes us look and feel better about ourselves. Eating the right food and keeping fit keeps our body physically strong, healthy and also mentally assists our body to positively carry out our work throughout the day," she said.

For the 2018 Island Chill Suva Marathon, Lata is challenging women to run for a healthy drive to have active life.

She ran her first marathon last year and won a silver medal at the Fiji Games in the 5000m event at the National Stadium

In this year's 6km fun held in Nadi two weeks ago, Lata was the first female to reach the finishing line.
