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.

Two half-marathons

I have been "long time no see" as regards this blog and blogging in general.
Life has changed...Quite a bit. I have been humbled, yet in a good way.

My previous post, was on intensity. I mentioned that I had an intense hike while going down Tiger Mountain. I said that I would like to see this intensity in my life, albeit a sustainable one. Fast forward two years to now... I am living many moments with intensity these days... My research is exciting, challenging and engulfing me at the same time. I meditate every day to help me keep calm and centered, while I run over the weekend to keep fit.
Yes, running has been relegated to a "once a week" thing. However I started training for half-marathons last year end and have run two of them since.
Seattle half marathon - 2010 and Mercer Island half marathon - 2011.
Both were good experiences, finished in around 2hrs 10 minutes.

I plan to run and hike more regularly in the future. Summer's coming up and nature's calling in Seattle.
