10 Must Do Marathons

Recently, Shahid sent a link that talked about 20 must do races and I must admit haven't run even in one of them. That list got me thinking and I created my own list of 10 marathons that I would like to run before I die..
  1. New York
  2. Chicago
  3. Berlin
  4. New Delhi
  5. London
  6. Paris (Might do this next year with Shahid)
  7. Sydney
  8. Chennai (organized by Chennai Runners)
  9. San Francisco
  10. Columbus (my other home town)
(Boston is not on the list because I wouldn't qualify for it... too slow for Boston !!!)

Talking about Shahid.. again.. he recently announced (in a radio program) that he would like to run 50 marathons and has done 5 marathons so far. That got me thinking and I am announcing today that I am also raising my bar.. I also would like to run 50 marathons and like Shahid has done 5 so far. Not sure if I can reach that target at my current strike rate. I seem to be running 2 marathons a year and at this rate, it will take another 22 years and I will be 68.

Now, Shahid.. let's see who gets to 50 first.....
