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.

Why do I blog? It's like asking why I run.
Many reasons are there!
I started off blogging being inspired by some bloggers like Kiruba. I was enthralled by the idea of self-publishing wherein I could express my views on varied topics freely in whatever way I chose. In my initial posts, I was more interested in putting the message across and didn't lay much emphasis on either the structure of the blog or the usage of words.

But slowly, I realised that I could fine-tune and sharpen my writing skills through the medium of a blog. Blogging is like writng a sop. The same article prepared as a first draft can be made more concise and coherent in successive drafts till there is a negligible improvement felt. Ofcourse, regular blogging may necessiate a compromise in the quality of posts but then the quality itself might depend on the nature of the topic and the knowledge the blogger possesses on the topic.

Now, it seems to me that blogging just happens, like running. Instincts and inspiration(arising from discussions and daily events and circumstances) decide when and on what I blog. I could ofcourse take a break from blogging( as with running) whenever I feel like; there's no sense of committment; it's like a call, which is part instinct and part addiction. There's a call and I attend to it, provided I ain't lazy or busy.....
