Missing That Feeling..!!

Image
I think it's the longest break I've taken from an official running event since I've properly started running in 2018. Today while discussing with a friend, I ended up re-living my running sundays in my mind. Then just for few moments (I had to do it), I got up and just admired these medals and got back to work.




Let's see what all I can add to the list for the moments that are missing in my life because of Corona. Lemme start:

I'm missing...

That feeling of booking flight tickets and hotel accomodation three months in advance to travel for the run

That feeling of collecting and keeping all running gear up front in the evening as you have to go for a run next morning
That feeling of cursing myself when I put an alarm for 3 in the morning to wake up
That feeling of cursing myself when I had to wake up and leave the bed at 3 in the morning as I had to go for a run
That feeling of finally getting a good bowel movement at such an odd hour of the morning

That feeling of morning h…

A Long and A Lone Run.. Few thoughts..!!

Covid-19 has got to the nerves of everyone, someway or the other. However, there is one thing that has helped me maintain my sanity is endurance sports, like long runs and long bike rides.
There are days, when I've started doing my own mini-duathlon (say 20-30km bike ride followed by 10k run). This might sound awkward to many, but there are few who will be okay with me doing this.
Despite all this, even with so much physical activity, I've never attempted a half marathon alone. All my 14 half-marathons have been in some event or the other.

Travel the world, Be your own muse.
World can be a cruel place,
Lets put it to some use.
Find the rhythm,
In day to day rush.
How about we put,
Those unnecessary voices to hush.
Focus on the silence, Find the nature's acoustic.
Like even at low tides,
Ocean feels therapeutic.
Lost in our efforts, We even struggle to strive.
Buried under simulated burdens,
We forget to thrive.

Take a look,
There's so much to life. Turn around and see once, Beautiful nature's rife.
Go ahead, Experience and nurture.
I'll wait for you on the other side,
While I create my own culture.
