Intro

This blog as might be apparent from the title has to do with running, biking and basically other outdoor individualistic sports, sometimes extreme, such as rock climbing . But don't be surprised if you find articles on work, personal life, music and even philosophy, this blog is an exception in this aspect in the blogosphere of running blogs and I am trying to revamp the blog to make it more runner friendly. You might want to look at the sidebar titled 'categorised', which as is obvious, categorizes my posts into different areas of interest.
The other thing that might interest many people is a section on 'running videos' and 'general videos' on the side bar, which I keep updating now and then.
I plan to bring in more posts on running and biking, with some added colour, so as to make them 'complete'. That's about it for now.
As a post-note, I have run a half-marathon, but I am yet to attempt a marathon, which through some concerted effort and time should happen in the future, but that ofcourse is not the culmination of this blog, it would on the contrary be something to jumpstart this blog onto new vistas.

Grubbing like a moron

Well, that's one good thing that I have been doing here as frequently as possible in between the hectic schedule and the searing heat of ahmedabad. One of my friends not used to such extravagant food, has had more than his share of delicacies and has taken the punishment of frequenting..er..the loo. Ofcourse, he is very cautious now and we keep teasing him now and then, and that keeps him checked. As for me, I have managed to stay below the threshold, but yesterday after a 30 minute run, I gulped many servings of curds and downed lots of water and still managed to have the main course of chapattis with three side dishes, halwa and salads, due to which I have a temporary potbelly! Commented a friend of mine who doesn't run, "I have to start jogging from tomorrow, else I will put 10 kgs in 1 month"...quite possible.

I know that heat - I was in Ahmedabad for seven years - without air-conditioning, I might add. I emailed you some info about me to the yahoo address listed in your blog profile.
