Yet Another Facet I Call ‘Me’!

β€œLife begins at the end of your comfort zone” used to buzz in my ears as I used to sink back under my comforter. And the few days that I did run and cycled it was no motivational gibberish or any stories or the wish of weight loss that used to play in my head but pure simple counting numbers and trying to breathe in tune were my saviors. So I got up, ran, crossed my own limits, bought a cycle, took pictures with it to post on FB, took some more time to take it out, made some rounds with it, improved on that and then DONE! Practice was over and with an unsure heart just stood there at the starting line on the D-Day of Duathlon and finished it.

Then came the realization! I gave myself a nice gift on the eve of my 31st birthday, my first Duathlon medal! πŸ˜€

Now, for the record, the Great Hyderabad Adventure Club (GHAC) Duathlon was conducted on 20th October 2013 and consisted of 5KM run, 20KM cycling followed by 3KM run. And I could finish it within 2 hour 17 minutes.

Did I mention my major inspirations behind the participation? Here are they πŸ˜€

Image

The HKMites Ajit sir, Ram n Me πŸ™‚

And the personal photography & cheer-leading team consisting of Hubby, Rahul and Suvidha πŸ˜€

Image

And now the beautiful memories of the event as it went and captured in pixels.

Image

I sure enjoyed the run; both 5km and 3km…

Image

Cycling back proved to be a pain!!!

Image

The spirit of sportsmanship; Ram continued even after much pain and Sir helped like a true inspiration πŸ™‚

Image

A piece of cake!

Image

Ram sure had an injury day!!! But kudos for continuing and finishing it even with a much better timing than me!

Image

Uff ye ada!! πŸ˜€

Image

U sure proved ur mettle!!!

Image

The satisfied me! πŸ˜€

An eventful day ended with a nice group dinner at Mast Kalandar and now I am looking for the next such event to enjoy the gala time again πŸ™‚ . Thanks GHAC for such a nice event.

Life Begins @30!!!

Image

The numbers are just a trick played by your mind β€˜polished’ with social conventions, norms, rules, customs and other blah n blahs! You can always check the strength of these so called β€˜guardians’, the ideas, against the natural element, say for instance water, and washed these shackles will be for sure; freeing you and giving a chance to be yourself!

So, here I started; moused through the RSVP platform and found myself at the start of an amazing weekend trip, my very first adventure trip to Dandeli; yonder to the white water of River Kali. I flowed, drowned, floated, choked, laughed, screamed, survived and LIVED!

Several stages of being one with the nature woven together, thanks to modern technology!

Image

The rocking ride.

Image

The much ‘awaited’ collision!

Image

The ‘content’ n thoroughly happy me πŸ™‚

Image

A chatty gathering of the thrilled group around the camp-fire. The warmth ensued from those flames paved way for dreams untold…

Image

A peaceful night out in the tent amid the nature, twinkling starts and night chill.

Image

Starting off for the next installment of fun. The whole group together.

SMILE MILE! πŸ™‚
