I tried it after Marathon run,
I tried it in the evening,
I tried it before my Dinner, I tried it on the dinning table,
I tried it on the bed, I tried it while I was driving to office……………
but failed to get the inaugural line for this post which will best explain my experience at Marathon.
- Got Up (thanks to my dad who waked me up).
6.30am - Got ready for
Dad & Mom were much tensed as it was my first
6.40am - After convincing my parents that I will be fine and wont take up any extra stress or injury, finally I left my home
7.10am - Reached Khanduji Baba Chowk Deccan (Staring point of marathon)
The Atmosphere was very different - saw the camera & the stage for the celebrities all set, participants with the Marathon TShirt , NCC Cadets well placed to organize things, manage the mob & police men’s there for security.
7.20am - Went to the Counter Collected Cap & Chest Number
7.35am - Joined the Charity Run.
7.40am - The inaugural session started.
The marathon was flagged off by Sunil Gavaskar.
Felicitation of all the Celebrities - Bollywood actress Aarti Chabbaria, Vidya Malvade and Sagarika Ghatge & actor Salman Khan, Suresh Kalmadi & Mayor of Pune .
8.15am - Salman Khan Flag off the AIDS charity run. I was in the first batch and got the opportunity to closely witness these celebrities waving their hands & supporting us.
8.45am - Reached Nehru Stadium (The Finishing point)
I was satisfied with my performance as I could finish 4.5 km in 30min.
Saw lots of participation from IT companies in and around Pune in Groups.
10.00am - Reached home
I had a great time running with 30000 athletes & people on the road watching us & appreciating & encouraging us.
I aim to participate in the next marathon for Women’s 10 Km Run.I understand that Its not that easy but neither is it going to be impossible, as I am going to continue my practice & maintain a healthy diet.
What made me happier is that listening to my experience Mom & Dad have decided to join me in the next marathon.
