Bhaag Milkha Bhaag!

To be true, I haven’t seen that movie nor I know what’s the status of “Milind Soman” as he runs from Ahmedabad to Mumbai, which is almost 570 km. What a guy he is! And what a guy I am, who could hardly finish 5k run(for the first time)! Yeah, you heard it right. I ran 5k this last Sunday and it was total fun.

It’s said that we have to start things for the first time, sooner or later. And so I started, started running. Sometimes from work to home at 8 PM, sometimes running around the new flat I live in with my friends, just to practice for the 5k run(the Main event).

On the event day, we left at 4:45 AM in our bikes and it was cold out there. What I love about Bangalore is its weather(mind you, this is one of the many reasons of loving this city). We lost path for a while but found one another soon and continued our journey to the event place.

On reaching, I had an expression of a big ‘O’ seeing so many participants and also seeing the Brigade Orchards(what a place it is). We warmed up. 4 teams(each team comprising of 4 members) had participated from Flutura(my new company).

2 months flashback, I left my old job and now I am at a new city, new company and without a cell phone(Unfortunately, I lost my phone and fortunately, I am away from WhatsApp and all the unnecessary chats).

Back again to present, I will buy a new phone soon, so wasting time is again going to beΒ the headlines of my life πŸ˜€

Just so you know, I am not going to talk about the 5k run because it took me 35:55 minsΒ to finish it. I think next time will be better πŸ˜‰

I met some cool people there. The person who finished the race first was from France. He finished the race in 19:42. We danced on the latest beats and also did Zumba. It was fun and fun days are back again(Ache din!).

All I would like to share is KEEP RUNNING, if tired, KEEP WALKING but DON’T STOP. Progress is important(remember the tortoise & rabbit story).

Feel free to share some of your fun moments and let us all know about it.

Some of the pics are below.
