Vikas, Murli and Shreyas did us proud at the Standard Chartered Marathon held on the 16th of January 2011, with Vikas and Murli completing the Half Marathon and Shreyas finishing at 17 kms.
While most of us were lazing around that Sunday morning, our three roadrunners were sweating it out, determined to experience that blissful â€˜Yayâ€¦I did it! I LOVE MYSELF!â€™ moment.
Of course some of our lads practiced hard to get into the spirit of the marathon. Shreyas modestly admits to running â€˜justâ€™ Â 7 kms a day, while Vikas is a regular runner. Murli however, had not put those legs to â€˜marathon useâ€™ for a good 3 years before yesterdayâ€™s event. Guess those days of running in college were not futile after allâ€¦.Imagine finishing the half marathon without a single practice run! That explains the subtle look of glory on his face below.
As a closing statement, Iâ€™d like to add :
To our Marathon Champs- Congratulations!!! You guys are awesome
To our current batch of â€˜losersâ€™- Hereâ€™s to having you guys, being blogged about as next years Marathon Champs
