13K run in extreme weather

It really was extremely. I completed by 10.5km run today in about 1hr 10mins and did the balance distance in about 16minutes, after a short breakfast pitstop. Most of the pictures (below) have been shot at King circle and Dadar TT area in Bombay


Taken at Dadar TT, Outside Damodar Sweet shop

BEST bus going up Tilak Bridge at Dadar

Knee length water & higher in most part of King Circle area.


It was really deep.....


Massive traffic Jam before King Circle railway station, due to water logging

God! You ran all the way in that weather?!

Great pix though. Reminds me of the 26/7 deluge. Scary man!

Keep 'em coming...

Thank god I ran, otherwise I would not have managed my trip to work.

Yes, it was a little scary, but things improve very quickly and things were back to normal by lunch time.

Hi. Nice to hear from you. Good to hear that you are planing to do another trip to India with your wife. India can get addictive and there is soo much to see.

Great going on your runs. Which Marathon are you planing next? Best wishes for your preparation.
