Sun 28th Oct, 2007...New Delhi India..

I ran My first International half marathon away from...Malaysia...N it is the Delhi Half Marathon..About 30,000 runners took part in that event. Myself N Sri were the rep of Slowmovers...Reached Delhi on the 26th night via Sri Lankan airlines...met my fren Mr Valli there, Thank you..4 everything Mr.Valli...collected the Bib the next day at the Ansel Plaza, did some shoppin at Sahara Mall, Sarojini Street..put up at Vasanth Vihar Guest House.

Next morning ...got up ..had some Breakfast..straight to the running spot which is at the opposite of Nehru Park...a big park for indians to lepak....started at 7.45 am ...it was a clumsy start...the race was not very well organsied..n the Medal..???.. Finisihed in 1:55:20. it was difficult to run in a low humidity weather...begining of winter...lips dries up quickly but...very the nice cos the there were water station every 2km...but no isotonic drinks...
A few of celebrities too took part such as Prinyka Chopra, Gushan Grover..Dravid..n etc...the aweks were very the superb..gila...!!!

Spent few more days visiting sacred places, temples,monuments, historical places n building which includes The Taj Mahal in Agra......memang very the wonder of the world..carved n designed wholely with Macrana marble which can only be obtained 400 km away from Agra..n ...no paintings???... how the?? they brought that amount of marbles n carved like paintings n writings..in 16th century...?..then to The Red Fort.....Lotus Temple...the India Gate, House of the president..n etc.... back to Malaysia on the 1st Nov...
