So you want to run a Marathon ?

Marathon ?? What ?? Ok, Marathon is a long-distance running event of 42.195 kilometres (26 miles 385 yards) that can be run either as a road race or off-road (for example, on mountain trails).

I got inspired from this story ,please follow link here

Phew !!! Its indeed Inspiring ,wasn't it ??? So people run Marathons not for the sake of winning (Kenyans are an exception!!!). So you can run marathons for a cause and please get in contact with the best of the NGO's.

So do you want to run a Marathon ??? , keep the following things in mind.

1. Know what you are in for

2. Get the right gear

3. Eat right

4. Training is a must

5. Sign up for the race.

ok fair enough , but how does it benefit me ??

* Increased energy
* Improved health
* A sense of accomplishment
* Increased discipline
* Quality time outdoors
* A chance to show off to the opposite sex that you can do it
* Of course, great-looking legs (Never underestimate the power of lean, muscular legs.)

Sports Unlimited !!!

For all the sports lovers , here it goes .. have you witnessed a weekend like this ever before ?? The Answer is a big "NO".. So guys who have not updated themselves with sports over the weekend , here is a weekly report. I have listed based on my best action that took place over the weekend in the world over.

1 . Guess ???? Its the MerseySide Derby win for Liverpool against it rivals Everton at Goodison Park . Boy oh boy !!! Kuyt is my man as he scores twice for the visitors and LFC wins a wild won scoring a late penalty in the dying minutes of the match(extra time goal). Could it get bigger than this ??? This is slated as the best ever Merseyside derby match played between the two teams. And iam eagerly waiting to figure out what might happen in the return leg. To know more about merseyside derby click here

2. So we move from Football over to Cricket , India scripts a easy win in one off T20 match against the Aussies @ Mumbai. It was pleasure to watch the Indians outplay aussies as the youngsters were firing on all cylinders . Dhoni in the press conference said " The way we went to win th T20 World Cup was not a fluke" and this would have silenced the critics.

3. Me move on the fastest sport in the world, Kimi wins Championship for the first time against all odds. Eventhough i couldnt watch the race late yesterday ( i was travelling back ), but i believe those who have witnessed the event would be jumping up and down with excitement. Thanks to Vijesh for giving me an update. I feel sorry for Alonso the defending champion and even more sad for Lewis Hamiltn , slated to win his first F1 Crown as a rookie. But Kimi also started as my favorite ,won the three way title race @ Interlagos, Brazil.

4. And odd one but it was another big event on the other side of the globe. South Africa wins World Cup Rugby @ Paris , France infront of a record 1 lakh crowd. They beat the defending champions England 15-6. Maybe people who are not well updated this a good piece of information.

And guess i have completed my list for the weekend review on sports. What a weekend it was for sports ,they call it "Sports Unlimited". Could you ask for more ???? The Answer is Yes..

Folks wait before closing of the window , Guess whats next ???

Its the ATP Masters @ Madrid , astonishingly the 2002 Wimbledon finalist , David Nalbandian won the ATP Masters handing a shock defeat to World No 1 Fedx !!! Could you believe it ???? Its better to :-) And he won the horse race after a great battle winning 1-6 , 6-3 , 6-3.

So folks hope you enjoyed my section today.. Lots more sports to come , so better be prepared.
