Began the run in heavy rain. Decided to go through an unexplored route (puthur) to Peechi Dam. Half of the run was through small beautiful villages in hilly terrain. Used the gps in the phone to find the way. A group of 4 small kids who were going home from church raced me for some time :) I slowed down as they were running carelessly on busy roads. Went back to the usual pace after they reached their home. Many kids were curiously throwing questions at me on the way. Not only kids, even the guy who was sitting next to me in the bus during the return trip and the auto driver who drove me back home from the bus stop. Bought 3 chicken biriyani's for me, dad & mom after getting off from the bus and caught an auto to home as i needed to deliver the parcel while its hot. I guess i earned the heavy meal :) http://connect.garmin.com/activity/102686860
