Can you imagine a peaceful run under shaded trees, on paved roads in Pune? That’s what we did thanks to Pune Running and Bridge Builders (NGO). We started at St Mira’s College for Girls and
ran on South Road and its lanes in Koregaon Park.
There was the pretty facade of the Osho Ashram. There were serene trees all along the 10 Km route and smiling faces of youngsters from 3 years (the kid was in pouch slung over his Dad’s shoulders!) to probably 70 years. There were volunteers from Pune Running and Bridge Builders who were also enthusiastic cheerleaders.
Pity that the run ended at 15 Km.

The Basking Cacti All that my that my cellphone camera could get was a washed out image of an island of cacti. It couldn’t capture what my mind was telling it to do. snapseed, an app, came to my rescue.
A week has gone and I haven’t run. After the last Thursday’s 10K in the hills,
I took it easy till Saturday and was looking forward to long run on Sunday with #punerunning. I woke early on Sunday to find a sore throat. So said sorry to myself and #punerunning and decided to skip. It is Wednesday now and haven’t been able to run since my nose is doing that now 🙂
A nice thought on shoes. So my experiment with Lottos have a echo here. And an echo for my thoughts of using flipflops (do get those classics anymore?) and somehow putting an ankle strap on them and run!
All this, not withstanding my pair of Luna sandals!
Looks like I am fussing too much about these unshoes -I should just sling them over my back and just run. Hopefully I running more gently as compared a year back when got three blisters each on my soles 🙂 I hope so.
