    Congrats you finished the marathon. So heartening to see that people are becoming more aware towards their health. A good cause and a wonderful way to make people aware. Kudos.

    Very nice! We Brits are facing problem of obesity and all that comes in its wake. But still people are reluctant to leave their laziness and now winter is coming handy for them for being further lazy! When I go for an early morning-jog in the park there's hardly anybody to give me company. We really need to have such marathons here too.

  5. Hello.
    I am sorry for the loss of your father. Please accept my condolences. You are very fortunate to have had so many years with your dad. My own father died when I was a young teenager & he never had the chance to see me grow to become the man I am today. The memory of him fades with each passing year, but there are some things I remember that will live in my heart as long as there is life left in me.

    When you love your heart, you are also loving you, for the heart is the life force within us.
    Sulekha, I am so proud of you & you too should be proud of yourself. Doesn't matter if you had to run or walk, you made it past the finish line.
    Congratulations to you & everyone else. You are doing something truly special. I love that last photo of you too. Your smile says it all!
    Thanks for sharing.

    Andy, thank you for your kind words. I was very lucky and am so glad I had my dad with me to celebrate all major events in my life but I couldn't fulfill his dream of seeing my name on the back cover of a book. He was the president of my fan club and is cheering for me from up there too 🙂 when I do write a book hope he sends me a sign saying, I am proud of my daughter.
    He is my role model and I hope to walk in his footsteps forever. God bless…

  7. Congratulations Sulekha! Wow…is this some kind of a fun run? You are so lucky you’ve finished 3km…I made only 1km lol :P…

    I’m glad you have your dad as inspiration and your son as motivation 😀

    And you’ve made some friends along with a big heart and a shoe lol…loved it!
