End of a Great Running Season

Finally the 2008-09 Running Season came to end at Auroville yesterday and this also completes my one full year of running. It started with my first half-marathon exactly a year ago at Auroville and yesterday I did another one.

This also has been a great running year and my association with Asha has added that extra bit of a meaning to my running !

(With Asha folks at Auroville, Pondicherry)

It has been a truly great year and I'll be still running with the on and off. With this I'll now get back into cross-training to strengthen my knees and improve speed. The next running season will officially start off in August with the Hyderabad marathon.

Last three days were exciting as I met my childhood friend and his wife at Chennai and had some great breakfast, lunch and dinner. Great drive to Chennai from Bangalore by Biswa and quick temple trip to Kancheepuram enroute.

There is still a month left before I wrap all my donations for Asha. Thanks to one and all who supported my runs. I'll be back again next year !

The running related pics are here:

Till then keep running and be healthy ! God Bless !

Great run Balu, looking forward to the pics. BTW, is the Hyderabad Aug date decided yet?

Balu said...

The date hasn't been decided but it will be mostly in 2nd or 3rd week. Thats what Rajesh Vetcha told me.

Guess August 15-16 types (weekend) !
