Goa beaches, Aadu @ 4 and my Pegasus 31

De-facto Nike

Time for Nike Vomero 9 to retire, it has help overcome my injury and come back to running !
So after Ani zoomed in with her Pegasus 31, I also wanted to upgrade my Vomero 9. I was contemplating between many choices, like Vomero 10 or Pegasus 32 (had just arrived), or Asics GT 2000 /Nimbus or go for AdiBoost..... But then some quick look at Myntra/Jabong for deals and I finally zeroed in for Pegasus 31, Neon Pink. This was my first shoe buy online. Turns out to be a great decision (Made in China, unlike the one in stores are Made in Vietnam)

Its in fact a pink color (if you use flash while taking the pic with a hint of orange). Yes, when I looked at the pictures while shopping it was little orange in color, though the text clearly read "Neon Pink". But I was getting almost 50% off and since I was planning to use this shoes only exclusive for running (I generally have separate shoes for running and office wear, but Vomero 9 was exception which I used for both as I was recovering for plantar fasciitis), it didn't matter.

Somehow, I needed to overcome this fear of wearing pink !

Go go Goa....

Finally I left my current job after 6 years and have moved into a new role. So just before I take up the new assignment we decided to take a small break and bumped into Goa for a weekend. We wanted to try the west coast

Aadu as usual liked the sand and stuff...

South Goa it was and we were at Ramada. Nice huge property, with kind a private beach.

Did try some hands on beach volleyball

South Goa is all resorts and beaches, calm and serene and it was in fact a mix rains and sun. Visited Lady Briganza's Portuguese house which has now become a museum.

Aadu turned 4

It was birthday time and Aadu has made quite a lot of friends which was evident on his birthday.

So on the running front Ani and I are planning a 10k and we will come out with our first together running ever pics soon ! That should sign off this year, may be with one short trip to Mysore or Ooty ! Keep Running and Eat Healthy !
