I did the 13.1 miles of a half-marathon, last Sunday, to raise money for AID.
It was a superb experience. The run was made much easier thanks to the cheerers all across the course and AID’s own ‘pit-stop’ teams. I took a bit longer than I wanted too, around 2 and a half hours, so I am wondering whether my next goal should be the full 26.2 miles or a faster half-marathon time.
Finishing the marathon felt really good, but finishing it without any stress or strain and in a very relaxed manner felt like a real accomplishment. For this I have to thank our trainer Shrawan Singhal, who also did an excellent job in raising funds.
Truly, it was a fulfilling and also humbling experience, one that I thoroughly enjoyed training for and doing. I would recommend it to everyone.
