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!

We did it!

  1. Hi 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!!!!

  2. Congrats!!! Please tell the dude in the pic to either wear shorts or pants. Any guy wearing capri style is definitely suspect.

  3. @ Jace: At our Native Village, Hesarghatta. That was the starting point. There was a 6.5 km track up and down.

    @ Prasoon: thanks!

    @ balu: thanks so much!

    @ Radman: i have nothing against it. so i’m definitely not telling him, plus he did a 26 in 3 hours. even with long pants, it might not be possible for some people πŸ™‚

    @ Ajay: thanks you!

    @ Srikanth: yes, finally! you must!

    @ 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. πŸ™‚

  5. @ Az Azura: thanks! i had many doubts myself! πŸ™‚

    @ Arnab: :-\ I see you haven’t stopped being cheeky!

    @ Dave: thanks a ton!

    @ Abhinav: wow! cycling is something i still haven’t been able to figure out, maybe someday! but 200 miles in a day seems an awfully long distance to cover!

    @ dev: hehe. yeah, that was the reaction that i got from a few people. that i don’t look like someone who runs ;0). but it’s always nice to surprise people!
