Been there, Run that!

After a lot of self-debate, I gave in to the pressure and signed up for a half-marathon which will happen in two months. 3 years ago, when I was fitter and lighter, I completed a 21K and wrote (read: cribbed) about my experience in the post below. Now, I am 3 years older and 5 kgs heavier and I haven’t run in a long time. I do not know if I will be able to complete the run this time but I am pretty confident I will have one hell of a story to tell after the event. Fingers and toes crossed.

Pointless & Prosaic

I had signed up for half marathon mainly due to peer pressure. My previous long running experience was when I ran a 10k race couple of years back, out of interest. I thought of signing up for 10k this time as well but I got carried away by peers pushing me for 21k.  We managed to convince our employer to pay for the event and tick off the CSR objective. My practice run started 8 weeks before the event and ended 6 weeks before the event.  To say that I was not prepared to run is a gross understatement. I was up against the odds in an event that I don’t fancy much.  I managed to complete the run, somehow. This post is just an account of what raced through my head before, during and after the run.
