Great to run with the girls

For the longest time, I have been thinking about getting up early, biking down to the Hyderabad Botanical garden ( a great chunk of green space very close to where I stay, the only one in the area, as a matter of fact), and going for a run there.

Finally happenned today, thanks to this group of girls, who decided to start running together.

HyderabadRunnerGirls

We did 6 kms. People ran or walk as they wished, each at their own pace. We all loved the paths through the forest areas, and some of us who hadn’t been on those paths before were surprised at the greenery. The morning was nice and cool. After the first round of the park, we all felt we could do more. Ammie, with her child on the stroller, was raring for a longer run. So were the others. So off we went, on a second lap of the gardens.

Was a great way to start the day, and hoping the enthusiasm continues. Next meetup is at KBR park, one of my favorite places in Hyderabad.

Eventually, the group would set up as the local chapter of RunnerGirls India.

    Beware! Ammie is a marathoner 🙂
    And, you should join the Hyderabad Runners google group – very active and regular runners.
