A gruelling 26 kms, on a course that had a combination of several uphill / downhill combinations and took me exactly 4 hours to complete! A rather scenic place to run in – so that made things much better! And organisers that had it all right and planned everything efficiently and perfectly. (Unlike the Bangalore International Marathon, which I hear didn’t do very well on that front).
Finally, after weeks of anticipation, completed my first ever long run. Am super thrilled and a longer post will come up soon!

Anita, where was this?
Congrates Anita….. !!
First time here.. I used to follow ur post on flickr, but following kiruba.com i came here to know the 26km run. This is definitely an achievement. Congratulations!!!!
Congrats!!! Please tell the dude in the pic to either wear shorts or pants. Any guy wearing capri style is definitely suspect.
Good to see another feather in your cap.
Started with RFL?
I wish to start off sometime in 2008.

@ Prasoon: thanks!

@ Srikanth: yes, lots of dreadful stories at the bangalore marathon! we were having a great time at hesaraghatta in the countryside running between fields and forests. 🙂
