Run, Neha run!

Just to test my determination (which is pretty low, I must say), I have decided to impose a schedule for the next two months. I thought about the things I am not good at doing. And the things I have taken up in the past and given up for some particular reason. Well, I came up with a list longer than list of corruption charges against our politicians (put together!). But the thing on the top of this list was to run. I have never been a good runner and cannot run for more than 2 minutes at a stretch (Though I have good stamina, and can do any other activity for long hours, like hiking/biking/walking). Though I do have a good excuse for this: I develop the runners stitch faster than most people, and I also find that my legs are not always happy that they have to support my body weight at speeds faster than walking speed. So, I decided that I am going to practice running, the aim being able to run at least 3 miles at the end of 2 months. Every week I am going to post on the blog, the progress I did during that week. (another 'easy post' idea). Forget the 3 miles, but lets just say I at least keep trying by the end of these 2 months. Good luck me :)

@rajeev: If you get motivation to eat (some highly fattening foods), that might be good for you :P otherwise soon you will be invisible!
