I am participating in the Sunfeast 10K!

Heya!

You are still here?...sure!

I mean you may stop blinking your eyes; pick yourself up if you have fallen off the chair; massage the hurting cheeks from continuous laughing...

I am participating in the Sunfeast 10K!( http://sunfeastworld10k.indiatimes.com/) and specifically in the Open 10K category! Will let my brethren run while i match their steps with hopefully long strides.

The reason why I am taking this 'giant leap' in my life is due to Prashant (my significant other) who participated last year along with a bunch of friends from Chrysallis. From cheering them last year to deciding to put on my sport shoes, I have come a long way and he has been instrumental in telling me I can do it each time more comments of surprise and disbelief come my way. The waking up at 5.30am to practice seems nice and have begun to feel motivated to be able to finish the run/walk in good time:)

What makes this run even more special is that we are doing it for ILP:). (Read more about ILP at http://www.ilpnet.org/) Thanks to Sudhira! When I first helped him sell the ILP T-Shirts on campus, little did I think that I would someday run for them.Maneesh, Shyam, Vasanta and Nag are also running in the 10K:). The little difference is that they are seasoned runners, having just run at the S&T Run at IISc... and am a novice! (Do not miss maneesh's account on the path to the run- http://did-i-miss-the-big-briefing.blogspot.com/2010/05/run-forrest-run.html)

While Vijayanth agrees that it takes a non-agile person a lot to do this, understanding that we fall in the same category; Rupesh lets me know that I should not let what S & M say deter my confidence...

The laces are tied
The thoughts are sewn
The morning sessions in place
The distance is drawn
No lethargy, no yawn
Full motivated...
Sunfeast 10K...
Here I come!
