Mumbai Marathon

Why do drugs when you can be a part of the Mumbai Marathon?

I just modified a quote i read in the newspapers about the Marathon.Well it was yesterday and I was a part of it.I was volunteering for it and it was great fun.Excepting my legs, I feel GREAT.I go to the same place every single day but yesterday EVERYTHING was different. The spirit, the colours, the people , the number of people at 5AM everything was different.It was so AMAZING.Well that was the event part of it, what also amazed me was how quickly we all (Team) got to know each other.We all didnt know (barring some) each other, but we got along very well and I think most of us became good friends. I think I can some becoming "more than good " friends too...AHEM AHEM...

So things that I proud of doing at the Marathon :
1. Made no mistakes .... :)
2. Spoke on a walkie talkie.
3. Introduced potential couples.... :o
4. Interacted with Indian athletes and saw the hardwork that goes into their work and yet they dont get proper recognition ....Sad...
5. Realised I can do well with just 1 hr of sleep :)

All in all it was a great experience.And a little better than last time.Cant wait for it next year....
