I did it! I completed the Mumbai half marathon this Sunday. A whopping 21 kms, and I've never run before. Expected to run about 10km, but surprised myself running close to 13. The hubbysaur and his cousin did the full marathon - 42 kms!!! The Bandra-Worli sea link nearly derailed everyone though - there was no water along the 5.5km stretch and nearly half a km before and after - left a lot of runners dehydrated. In fact, most of the water and refreshments on the way were provided by well meaning Mumbaikars who thronged the street shouting out words of encouragement. Would be nice if some of them didn't stand in the middle of the route to do so, though. All in all, proud of myself, the hubbysaur and near & dear ones who ran yesterday. Cant wait to do it again!
