It is always a pleasure to meet triathlete Dr. Amit Samarth in Thanjavur, and this time around when I bumped into him at the Annai Sathya Stadium he informed me about a middle distance running race in Thirukattupalli town, about 28 Kms from Thanjavur.
Running need not be a monotonous activity. You can vary your workouts to keep yourself motivated and interested.
A race that I was looking forward to, almost turned out to be a “Did Not Start”.
A totally unplanned, last minute registration, turned out to be a fun family outing on a Sunday morning.
Running has always been one of the most efficient ways to burn calories. Running is also one of the cheapest ways to get started with exercising. You don’t need to invest in a gym-membership or buy a fancy bicycle to get started. All you need is a (cheap) pair of running shoes and a place to run.
