One Hour and Fifty Seven Minutes..
That's the time I took to complete Hyderabad half-marathon. My goal was to complete under two hours and am happy to make it.
At the starting point - Ajendra and his Hungarian friend Achilles
Runners milling around listlessly. The instructions were not proper and to top it, the place was plunged in darkness as the run was about to commence.
Long trek to Chairminar - the turn around point for Half Marathon. The local police and volunteers did a commendable job of keeping the uncontrollable traffic at bay
Medal / Certificate collection point. This place was crowded and could hvae been organized better. Runners deserved to treated better after the grueling run.
All smiles after the completion..

george - in office.
With my new job, I am looking to cut down on my travel..
Now, I want to see you running this weekend.. will you? With you lean structure.. you can just fly through..
It looks to me from the photos that most of the other marathon runners are much younger than you. And that should make your prouder.
Man.. Do I look so old.. I am only 24!!!
