Not Going To Mumbai Marathon
I was looking forward to Mumbai Marathon, but I will not be participating after all. I decided to pull out after I saw the late starting time for full marathon. For some strange reason, half marathon is starting ahead of full marathon. This is in stark contrast with other place where they flag off the full marathon first and the rest later. But, in Mumbai, half marathon starts at 6:45 AM and full marathon only 7:40 AM.
For runners like me who might take 5+ hours, it would be very difficult to run for that much time in the Mumbai heat and humid. So, I am opting out..
Good Luck to other ChennaiRunners who are participating..
