Humour: September 2006 Archives

The first & the last marathon I ran!

18 kilometres! And they casually said it is a ‘Mini’ marathon. The real ones comprise of 42 kms I guess. We neither wanted to prove our stamina nor wanted to win the marathon. The announcement said ‘Free T-shirts for all who participated’ – that is what attracted us. Out of the many who stayed in hostel we four were the only guys who jogged & exercised regularly those days (1994). Hence thought we had a fair amount of chance to win. Rest of the 48 people who participated were athletes and long time marathon runners!
