The Birthday Blast

Though my b'day was on the 27th, party celebrations began from 23rd onwards. It started with a get together with gym buddies followed by an enjoyable evening watching the Euro 2012 game between Spain and France. The next day was spent in my favorite mall where I caught up with a hilarious play titled Vagina Monologues. Monday and Tuesday seemed to fly. Tuesday night was spent in cutting the cake with my gym trainers and lots of animated chatter. The day dawned nice and bright with wishes pouring in. 
It started with a visit to Siddhi Vinayak and Mahalaxmi temple, where the almighty blessed and wished e as well. Post which I had a good cardio session at the gym.

My tryst with running commenced when I struck my first chord of friendship with the treadmill three years ago. However t reached a notch higher only in the past one year, post my miserable illness. It was with a vengeance that I hit the treadmill, pleading it silently to aid me as I improved my stamina. As time cruised by, September had arrived with just 3 months left for the Mumbai Marathon. The rains began to recede, giving way to the warm sunshine.

Those three months made me a morning person completely.  It was a great incentive to look forward to the cool morning breeze, sunrise by the sea along Marine Drive and the refreshing orange juice at Cafe Mondegar post the run. My first marathon went off pretty well. Post which I cont…
