what do you say when...

someone asks you to OWN the Chennai beach?


I guess you try to own it. Life is, after all, a beach.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, we were out there. Some fourteen of us in one big van. Chennai Marathon 2010.

It is a very different experience than Mumbai. Or Auroville. I am still glad I chose to run the 10K and not the half. I am not yet in that state of mind of running 20K just chumma like that. Considering I ran it just last weekend. Seven days ago.

I got royally beaten by all the school/college athletics team girls. Unlike my idol Zola Budd, who is kicking ass somewhere in Canada (I think). But hey. I did good time. The campus posse rocked. Deshvaasi truly OWNED the damn beach, after all.

Good beginning to a Sunday.

Deshvaasi thulped it royally!
He came. He ran. He conquered:)

Best part was after the run,when we cheered. Hell, we made strangers sprint by cheering them on:)
