All Talk and No Action Wednesday, September 10, 2008

Is an important day.

Nope - not any birthday/anniversary/Shaheed Divas.

Tomorrow - I am going to run.

Yes, run.

I have decided to participate in Mumbai Marathon (Dream Run) in January 2009.

I have always wanted to participate in the Marathon but somehow never got going. Earlier this year, a chance encounter with a Colleague based in London got me thinking.

Despite being an asthmatic and having met a near fatal accident - the lady ran for the London & Berlin Marathon.

If she with such broken ligaments yet soaring spirits could do it...Then I am sure, I with some inspiration and lots of will shall be able to do it too.

Since I am an ordinary mortal with no prior experience...I shall start preparations from now.

Abhi shuru kiya toh January tak 7 kms achhe se daud sakungi :)

The run shall be an exhilarating experience am sure. Lakhs on the street - huffing and puffing, running/walking for causes close to their hearts.

More than any of these, I shall be running to prove a point...

To myself.

All those interested can refer to www.runningandliving.com. It's a good storehouse of tips and the whole "how to" questions for first time runners.

Also, I invite suggestions and tips from all you guys out there...Am sure they shall be very useful for me.

@Anil -
Its sad that you haven't watched movies lately. Too bad as movies provide the much required respite to busy souls :)

For Marathon - I would be running with my colleagues and obviously with Yew ;)

Afa being a review writer is concerned - Either u r blind or plain ignore other other issues I discuss OR u like to irritate me...

I guess the 3rd reason is most relevant :)
