Completed half marathon in Bangalore mid night marathon

Well I am very happy that I was able to complete the half marathon ( 13 miles ) in my first ever marathon on Jan 10, 2009. It took me 2 hrs 58 minutes and I was almost walking in the last couple of miles. But I am glad that I was able to complete.

Trans music in my iPod shuffle helped me a lot.

Day by day I am becoming a big fan of running. Its a very good exercise. Especially when you run in groups, its very refreshing and makes you feel good.

Marathon is an extreme case of feeling good. Seeing thousands of people running, one can definately run 2 times than his/her usual running!

Hope to improve my timing next time!

  1. Good job buddy. Running 13 miles is like almost impossible task for me. But background of the pic seems to be a multiplex. Did you run to catch the movie? 🙂

  2. Thanks Nitin!

    The background is the marathon start/finish gate and a standee along with that, put by the organizers/sponsores.

    Well it was almost 3 in the night when I finished. (Started at 11:57 p.m.) So even if it would have been a multiplex, a movie was out of question 😉
