|Shatabdi Express, Pune Secunderabad. August 25, 2013|
|Looking north, on a west- east bound train.|
I went to Hyderabad (Secunderabad is a sister city) last weekend by train. Left early Saturday, ran the full, 42.2 km Airtel 2013 Hyderabad marathon on Sunday morning and returned the same day. Quite exhausting. I did not do as well as I wanted. I went too fast initially and had severe cramps in the 29th Km and had to walk/limp the rest of the 13 km to finish in 5 hours 39 minutes. But finished all the same. The depressing split stats and ranking can be found here. Bib Number is 1289. Male. Category :Overall.
The lines and coloring on the drawing is shaky because of the rocking of the train. The watercolor landscapes are glimpses of the freshly monsooned countryside sliding past. Beautiful.
