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.

5k update

Chennai weather is really suck. I have been observing the past three weeks, the following pattern:
It gets really hot and humid two - three days before it rains and before you finish whining about the hot weather...bam! - Heavy shower for 2 - 3 hrs that makes the track literally useless. Even today, all was fine and dandy till 2pm and then the rain-gods showed their wrath....So the 5k's been postponed to monday or tuesday...good thing in a way as my thighs are still sore from yesterday's race.
