I never thought I’d say this but I had a beautiful run today. Despite the back injury and the lack of running, I completed a half marathon at the Auroville marathon in reasonably good time. Thank you AJ! I wouldn’t have signed up for this one of it weren’t for you. It’s a beautiful quiet trail and the only sounds were those of birds and running feet.
The run was superbly organized with adequate stations and enthusiastic volunteers. I could come back again. All in all, its been a wonderful holiday and today’s run was the icing on the cake. The theme of the marathon was ‘Run for the Joy of Running’ and it expresses how the run was for me.
I think I just may have found a new love… Trail running
