2008 Mumbai Marathon

2008_mumbai_marathon.pngI’ve been training for about 10 weeks for the half marathon (21km) in Mumbai. I’ve jogged over 170km over those 10 weeks mainly on Marine Drive. I ended up finishing the half-marathon in 2 hours and 16 minutes, which is exactly the same time I had during the 2006 Mumbai Marathon.

After finishing the race I met several people from Chennai, Bangalore and Delhi and they all said the Mumbai Marathon was the most fun to run. Not sure if they were just being polite but they all mentioned the same thing: the residents of Bombay that lined the streets cheering runners on made it worth the effort.
