“Life 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! 😀
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 😀
The HKMites Ajit sir, Ram n Me 🙂
And the personal photography & cheer-leading team consisting of Hubby, Rahul and Suvidha 😀
And now the beautiful memories of the event as it went and captured in pixels.
I sure enjoyed the run; both 5km and 3km…
Cycling back proved to be a pain!!!
The spirit of sportsmanship; Ram continued even after much pain and Sir helped like a true inspiration 🙂
A piece of cake!
Ram sure had an injury day!!! But kudos for continuing and finishing it even with a much better timing than me!
Uff ye ada!! 😀
U sure proved ur mettle!!!
The satisfied me! 😀
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 🙂 . Thanks GHAC for such a nice event.
