@iamrohitpathak ***Long Post*** But do give a read, still over the moon. Race Report @tcsw10k Bengaluru
This was my first major running event post the @idbifed_newdelhimarathon in Feb'19, I had kept on with my practice runs & regular training with @adidasrunners Delhi.
When I landed in Bengaluru on Friday night I found the weather really good as it had rained that day but on sat morning in the Shake It Up Run with #adidasrunnersbengaluru, it was a rain check for me, humidity level was high and the course was uphill which could be two probable challenges on the race day.
With over close to 16K runners in the Open 10K category it was an electrifying atmosphere inside the race venue. The run started sharp at 5.30AM, 2Km into the race and humidity had started kicking in, and the climbs could be felt, however the legs and body had got into the rhythm. By the time I had crossed 4Km every inch of my body was fully drenched in sweat due to the humidity. The 6th & 7th Km were the toughest for me where I kept pushing myself, not submitting to the climbs. Crossing Vidhan Soudha and entering Cubbon Park I knew now last 2km were left and I had to go all out, that's exactly what I did, put in all the energy I had & raced to the finish line. I have never felt so ecstatic reaching the finish line, I had clocked 1:02:51 and it was a PB by over 5 mins, @thecookie_runner our Captain beamed when I told her it was my PB, and so did the other team mates & friends.
Congratulations @ozystrong , @gareema_s , @bishtkumaon for your superb PB's, @scorpprasunb for 43.40, @shishjain a job well done for you first Duathalon.
A big thank you to @thedefaultrunner , @turbanator_preet , @nivi.fitrabbits for al the relentless efforts you put in into our trainings. @thecookie_runner , @42.2withfloyd & @anil_mahobia , a mere thank you would be too less a word for the amazing company & hospitaliy, all I can say that is I came here to make memories and I am going back with a bag full of them.
Thanks @ajay_koorata for the fab race pics.
