Marathon Fun

This Year's Airtel Delhi Marathon was lots of fun... much like last time.... Last year, I ran[rather walked, cause i had a very very bad throat n could hardly speak a word without couging n spluttering ;-)] with Dipali and Amit....

This year I had gone with Amit... this time Amit Ghosh, a friend at work. Reached the holding area at 8:30am. Got set...

We were walking arround n just couldn't help taking a shot of this gentleman....I think he imagined himself in the lawns of India gate rather than the holding area of the marathon... Ha..Ha..Ha...

There was an event where people came in costumes....

At the starting line, there were lots of celebs... Shahrukh Khan [seemed like the main attraction... oh god.. the jostling which happened to catch a glimpse of him], Sheila Dixit, Suresh kalmadi, Rahul Bose, Simmi Greywal [in her signature white clothes n red nail polish... LOL...], Vijendar Singh, Cathy Freeman.

Running was fun... :-)

The number of people taking pictures other than the designated marathon-photos.com guys was crazy.... way more than last year.....
People were quite enthusiastic about dressing up and DOWN for the run..... LOL... ;-)

People were having a ball of a time...

Met up with friends... Priyanka Sachar, Bhawna and Vibhore. Lots of them were running 21 Kms, could get to meet them....

After running for a while.... walked the rest of the way.....
It was so much fun.... hope to run the 21 next year...
