Monday Marathon

I thought all marathons are held only on Sundays.. boy, I was wrong. Boston Marathon, one the most popular marathons is on a Monday (tomorrow). When my Boston friend Lakshmi told me about it being on Monday, I was skeptical, but a little bit of checking confirmed that it is on Monday.

It is going to be a interesting Marathon tomorrow as the weather conditions are going to be grueling. It is extremely windy and pouring in Boston now and weather pundits predicting more rain and possibility of couple of inches of snow. The good news is Boston Marathon has never been canceled due to weather conditions in its 110 year history and the bad news (for folks like me) is it will not be canceled due rain or snow.. so dress appropriately and run the marathon of your life..

My dream is to qualify for Boston Marathon which for my age group is 3:20. And this exactly why some dreams will remain a dream for me.. !!!

Good Luck Boston Marathon Runners..


  1. Will you be back in India when Sam is in town on May 7th?

    Raman Sir, I am not sure you were the one with HCL...

  2. Like you I am following the Boston Marathon. Though I lived in Boston and vicinity for close to three years, it make me no where near to be eligible to run that Marathon ! :-(

    I had a good run with Hari on Apr 15th. Missed you !

  3. Sad about the Virginia Tech shootout.... and the Ghaziabad kid. May their souls rest in Peace.

  4. Cricket and Marathon will continue to rule the sports and games world for sure.

  5. was in London Marathon last sunday(22/apr).. ofcourse, as audience cheering others..;~) and I more than happy with that role.
