According to the Runners High program for this week, I was supposed to run 21km this Saturday. But I’m in Dharwad for various reasons, so decided to run that today.
As I like to say, “You’ve not really explored a city until you’ve run in it.” And true to that, I got to see a good part of the city including the Kelageri lake and the beautiful Karnataka University campus. And it is truly a city of educational institutions.
As usual, the first half of the run went strong and well, and I struggled a bit in the latter half of the run. Nevertheless, I made it a point to consistently refuel myself with electral water, figs and badam. And that did the trick. Despite the severe elevation, I had a good run and saw the city like never before. My only regret is that I should’ve taken some photos of the beautiful route.
The run was pleasant because of the wide roads and still-lush greenery of the city. Special thanks to my wife who was my guide and support system for today’s run.
I’m looking forward to the Kaveri Trail Marathon this year.
So what am I doing in Hubli/Dharwad? Well, that’s another story for another day.
