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.

Yes, finally I would be done with my program out here..and what a relief it is. My presentation got over today evening and I left immediately to my hangout..The computer Centre(cc) and hit upon my latest stress buster..SUDOKU..Ever since the game started showing up on the news-papers, I got hooked on to it. The one in "The Hindu" started out as an easy one and I guess it has maintained that tag, so I had to look for challenging.. .It displays the time of finish and even the relative position of all those who finished it that day. My position was around 350, not bad considering my friends finished a little later......
Now, the last one week I must have averaged 8 hrs of work on my presentation and that is heavy work..No wonder I am very much looking forward to running a lot in atleast the coming week.
But the irony is just when the weather started showing its better side, it's time to leave this place and face the heat at chennai. Hmm...Life's like that.

Hi Karthik,

Good you came back to Chennai now, else you too would have been stranded in Gujarat due to the floods.

I too was hooked on to SuDoKu , but only recently. Out of nowhere i got interest in solving it when I was so bored that I started solving one.And from that day on , I took all the back issues of the paper and solved almost all of solving the daily sudoku in mousebreaker..
