A Runner’s Life

Running is invigorating and racing is even a lot more fun.  The adrenalin rush that comes with your sleep-deprived state just trying to keep up with the rest of the pack to reach the finish line is quite addicting.  Crossing the finish line is so satisfying that it leads you to chase your next race, … Continue reading »

November Resolutions

“Why wait for January when you can keep a monthly resolution?” November starts with 11.1.11 and would have 11.11.11 in a few days and somehow, you get the feel that this month’s special.  I just came up with an idea that while we wait for January in gleeful anticipation for a new beginning.  We can … Continue reading »

Advocacy

“For life to matter, you just don’t have to survive it… you have to make a difference.” Sometimes we are just content in surviving life and probably at times, it’s the only choice we have but what does it matter to survive without a cause or a vision to believe in.  It’s like groping in … Continue reading »

Life in the Slow Lane

Running is reflective of life’s goal, sometimes you stop, slow down & fall but the goal is to finish amidst the things that go wrong. It’s been busy past few weekends with me jumping from one event to another and don’t get me wrong, I’m enjoying every minute of it.  Life has now been a … Continue reading »

Here, There and Everywhere

“Time and energy is always a diminishing resource, don’t waste it on people and things that don’t matter” I wonder how long can I go on with this lifestyle and to think vacation season has just set in.

The Best and Worst of Times

Sometimes I get to feel that it’s always harder to be the good person. After all the hard work and all the effort, people would just come in, undermine your and your team’s capabilities and take all the credit. It’s really easier just being the insecure credit-grabber but I guess doing the right thing may … Continue reading »

The Finer Side of Life

From the whining mode, I’m now more upbeat and looking forward to the finer side of life. Of course, it doesn’t mean everything is in perfect place and everybody is happy but I’m taking comfort that the difficult days have passed and the rest is more tolerable.
