Hello World!

My foray to brave new world of blogging!

By and large, this will be running-theme blog, I'll also post some of the technical stuff I do (open-source, Python, techie stuff unrelated to) sort of reference material for me, but for most part, this will be about my running and how to keep myself motivated. I procrastinate a lot :-( so blogging seems like a good idea.

I run mostly outdoor (or used to) but this year I just sort of became lazy, nowadays I mostly just go to the gym, use the treadmill once every two weeks. Sad indeed. But then a stroke of fate, my sister saw an ad for the Market! Market! Fun Run. Long story short, I run at the event and got back my groove for running outdoors. At the time, blogging was still farthest from my mind, but I kept trying to think of a way to keep me motivated, I was afraid that I might slide back to my old ways of putting things off if I can't come up with something that will keep me running religiously. Then while trying to google for the next race, I chance upon a couple of local blogs on running, I thought they were hip, savvy, and cool. And then voilĂ , why not blog? But then, I don't know a thing about blogging, and my writing experience is mostly limited to work emails, so I'm thinking... I'm nuts. Ahh, but I do love to run (love conquers all diba, hehe) and it can't be all that bad and I may not be up to any award-winning blogs but I'm sure it could be learn/develop. So I thought, just give it a go and see how it goes, blogging sound like a killer idea, it would be a shame not to give it a try. And so here's to wonderful world of blogging, may the force be with me :-)

Here's the run that started it all, with my nephew CJ.
