TMM 2019 Mumbai Marathon this year felt faster while the finish time was more than last year’s run. This is how runs go. One hopes, prepares and then variables beyond one’s control take over. All that variation and uncertainty is fine as long as one doesn’t expect. However, as much as running is about experience, […]
Gebrselassie and Bekele’s country.. OFCOURSE premier’s term is also a marathon. And how does one forget that gorgeous ace runner Tirunesh.
When spirit doesn’t, geography does. Either way we are destroyed. Clocking good time in the process, is all what we got! Enviable, how these skyrunners commit themselves and endure these trails.

Registration stats at Auroville Marathon. Handwritten! Adorable folks these are.

One can only guess what might have been going on in this ace runner’s mind as he saw himself falling out of the pack. While that […]

“Its gonna be a long day”, said the Canadian runner as we tackled the first elevation of the day. It was half past seven in the morning. A naive 6-7 hour finishing time however was my idea. I saw that intention mocked at, by the trail, as the noon sun began drying the salt at […]
Last week at SCMM, I figured that a 42 kilometer loop around a city is quite an unusual way of experiencing it. May be that explains increasing popularity of running tours in Europe. A run around the city is much like our old town halwai offering generous bits of the assortment of sweets on display before […]
