I love to walk, there are a lot of friends who vouch for how much I made them to walk. One of the things that I decided on coming back to Bangalore was that I will run a marathon. I know it's a huge task for some one like me, but nevertheless I decided to.
As a first step towards this goal, I enrolled myself at the one of the best gyms in the town. Almost three months later, I see myself going 10km and more.
The second best thing that happened is getting to know about Hash. I have seen many social gatherings, clubs, organizations, but never was motivated enough to continue beyond a point. In my opinion most of them are hypocritical, always with contradictions to which, I never got a satisfying answer. Hash does not pretend to be one, nor is it one. It's a group of people getting together to run.
What is it that binds them together? Running/Walking and having fun. I just love to hash. Watch out for more on Greater Bangalore Hash.
To all those who run(You are not alone, there are a lot out there), here is a list of events for the rest of the year. This list is a courtesy this post by Swaroop.
