History

Funnily and maybe not so funnily, it all started over a drink (see what I mean by not-so-funnily) at the MBC regatta night late Feb. I was drunk and stupid enough to proclaim my stated objective of running a marathon one day and Prabhakar, who had the misfortune to be hanging around there, was drunk enough to take me up on that one. He actually called me for a run the next day to Anna Univ grounds.

I actually got up the next day and went.

p.s.: Blog origin: I promised myself that I will start a blog IF I run in Finland and I did – the very day I reached there. I have even mentioned that on that day
