10 Tips To Get Back to Running After A Break

A fellow blogger and runner friend recently said to me(in fact taunted me, to be precise), when she heard that I am not running and putting on weight, that she hates being friends with people who are lazy FARTS! Well, I am thankful to her for this kick in the butt, theoretically. I started running the next day and a few days later reactivated my sleeping blog. That’s the first step to get the motivation to start running again. A...

100km of Tribute

Fun is the opposite of misery. Fun is the essence of life. Fun is a state of mind. Thinking of fun takes my fickle grey matter to think of only one thing i.e running.

Sometimes it is rock climbing or skateboarding. But always at the back of my chameleon brain is...

The reason of filming this session of penny cruising with the kids was because on that day I had bought a gorilla pod for my GoPro Hero 4 Silver...

So, I started reading up a few nutrition books and blog posts but all I got was food names which were not available in India. I mean,...
