Dream Run – 17th Jan 2010

I completed the Dream Run (6 kms) in 45 minutes. I have been doing 10 kms in an hour and 7 minutes, 9 kms in an hour , so I ought to have finished in 40 minutes. But the first 2 kms was not a run, it was folks having a party with no space to run and elbows jammed in your tummy if you tried to go past!

Some pictures clicked at Azad Maidan and me, nearing the finish!

Dream Run!

I will be running the Dream Run on the 17th of Jan, 2010 in Mumbai.

The Dream Run is 6kms and covers the distance from CST (VT) to Nariman Point and back to Metro.

I have been training for the past 3 months, running 2 – 3 times a week. Slowly but surely increasing the distance covered. Have brought the distance run w/o a halt to 9.6 kms.

I started out running to increase my stamina and strengthen my legs. Those goals have been met to a large extent! Losing fat will take some time! Can’t have it all, I guess!

Intend to give the half-marathon , (21 kms), a shot next year. My friend, Newton is participating in the half-marathon this year.

Wish us luck!

Cheers!
