First run of 2013, it was Hyderabad Half on 25th August. I was in Hyderabad during that time and ran without any preparation! Yes, not even a single run before running. New shoes were brought from bib distribution expo, on a day before race i.e. 24th Aug! Asics shoes for around 6000/- with 10% discount.
Race was good. There were good numbers of water points and medical facility was adequate too, in short simply liked the run.
The route was challenging too, it started from Hussain Sagar bank and finished at Gachiboli stadium. Before that I cycled the freedom ride, on 15th of August, mark of the 66th completed years of Independence. Knee pain was hurting a lot but then completed the race within 3 hrs., as promised to myself.
A day before race, @ expo which was organised at Hitex, Hyderabad.
Here’s the victory.
Refreshment and amazingly it was only for the runner, they stamped on the bib that I have taken mine.. no second inning or for friend..
First time experience at the running court @ Gachiboli stadium!
