Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll.
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

-- William Ernest Henley

Completed my first half Marathon

"If you want to win something,
       run 100 meters.
 If you want to experience something, 
       run a Marathon." 

   - Emil Zatopek, Olympic Legend

Running and all was never in my dream, but somehow I was pulled into my company relay competition few months back. It was 10K by 4 people, I came on 14th position among some 250 people.. and that was my first inspiration. 


Then I heard of this Bangalore Mid night Marathon, but I saw only 5K that with a great difficulty. Somehow I got motivated by seeing my PM interests on running. So I thought of giving a try to half marathon. 21 KM is too long to run, but only hope I had was that even if I don’t complete I can come out in the middle ;) and there is nothing wrong in giving a try. So as usual, planned to practice every day - Just planned, never followed. My GYM master was totally against me on running as I could loss lots of weight ( tho' I don't have anything to loss ;) ) but I wanted to try that at any cost. Hence without brothering anything further, started practicing on treadmill.. and here is my run log :

       Date    KM     mins   KG     stop 
0  3(twice) 
1   27-Dec-08    7.5    58   68.6     0 
2   25-Dec-08    8      50   68.8     3 
3    2-Jan-09   12      70   68       1 
4    8-Jan-09   17     110   68.5     0 
5   10-Jan-09   Half   160            0

There was a huge difference when running in treadmill and on road. Treadmill was very easy, while running on road I got hurt my left leg, still manage to finish it somehow. Rock and Tempo Music which picked for running helped me a lot to keep going and also the glucose they provide during the marathon gives instead energy for some time. After running for 2 hr and 40 min I was pretty exhausted. I struggled to reach my bike which was parked 1 km far and in a loosy sand :( , it was freezing cold too in the night. I took around 15 to 20 mins to take my bike out of the loose sand ( no energy at all ) finally a guard helped me. At the end, I manage to reach home around 4 am( my home was 25 KM away). But with all this pain there is a proud feeling that I have completed half marathon :)  

Will try to complete Fulll Marathon  in  an year or so.
