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.

Road rash

I had been to my relative's place today morning. Had some fun time there during the day. When the time approached for my departure, my relatives graciously offered to give me a lift back home, so that I could pick up my cycle a few days later.
I graciously declined, declaring that it was fun cycling on main roads. Then they offered me a piece of advice on how to be very cautious on the roads and to stick to the left of the road, etc. I nodded my head(in agreement ofcourse). On my way back I stuck to the traffic rules, especially the one about overtaking from the right. Yep, I kicked some serious ass tonight. The lack of traffic on the roads at around 9 in the night did help me get from ashok nagar through kathipara junction to cancer hosptial, adayar(8 - 8.5 kms) in 16 minutes. I had some real fun watching the almost incredulous looks of some of the two-wheeler guys on the rajbhavan road. Overtaking autos on roads is not new to me, but hero-hondas, pulsars and the like, well, that was really thrilling!
