Why try to fit in?

… when you are born to stand out?

Had an enjoyable time participating in Atlanta Buddy Walk to raise funds and awareness for the cause of Down Syndrome. The sun was hot as heck but it was good to be with our team captain Rishi and everybody else who came to support him and the cause.

Only for the second time this year…

Lately, I have been going thru a running rut. I cannot seem to get enthused to go for the long runs that I used to love. Worse, these days after a couple of miles, I feel tired and out of breath. I guess age is starting to slow me down.

Last night, I wrote to a few of the old long distance runner friends to see if running with the old friends might get my energy back. Lia agreed to run a 10 miler with me. It has been a long time since I have run 10 miles. In fact, I checked my record book – that was on Feb 3rd.

I got hungry, tired and wanted to quit after a few miles today too. But thanks to Lia, I continued to keep up with her and finally managed to finish 10 miles.

I think I am going to run with the long distance runner friends of mine till I can get back to my old energy level.

Thank you Lia for keeping me going.

Great runs on a Sunday morning.

The first run was a 5K with Nikita. I am loving the runs with her – although, I have to admit, she is kicking my butt in the last couple of K’s. I absolutely need to take a break in the uphill portion of the run but she just keeps ploughing thru.

To prove that I am not completely done, I went back for another 5K run by myself…
