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.

One week past....

It's actually more than one week since I stepped foot in ahmedabad. The weather here is comparable to that in,dry winds that can give you a stroke if you stay out for not so long a time.
The room in which I am put up now is on the 2nd floor of a building that is a part of the newly constructed 'new block' in the IIMA campus. What is pathetic about the construction is all the walls are plain concrete which absorb the heat during the day and radiate it through out the night. (Also the entire width of the walkway(20 metres) in the newblock is fully paved except for some plants in the divider, radiating a lot of heat, more green cover would have helped the guys staying in the rooms ).

This problem is compounded by the fact that my room is aligned in the east-west direction and thereby I incur the wrath of the sun at around 7 am everyday when the first ray of light strikes my body, giving me a jolt of pain....
Well I have decided that terrace shall be my abode for atleast as long it is more comfortable than the room, which is quite large by hostel standards.
Thinking of my room, I miss IITM, where I have been for 4 years and will be for one more year..I am already thinking of getting back there and enjoying the relatively (chennai is definitely hot) cool surroundings that my campus has to offer.
The grub after my 40 minute run today in the campus was really amazing..salads, gulab jamuns and ofcourse lots of curds (apart from chappatis).
That's the only thing cool out here............
