Sunday, June 13, 2010      3 comments

I think one of the main reasons for my sudden obsession with biking is the fact that only a few minutes cycling out of the city and I find myself in the most lush green countryside that I can possibly imagine. Yesterday, I set off on a 25 ... Read more

Saturday, May 15, 2010      3 comments

I don't know what possessed me today but I had to try ... I opened the wardrobe door ... no I didn't step through to find myself in another world. I simply stared at a few items I haven't been able to wear for a long while. Clot... Read more

I've been looking forward to this day for weeks. But it's not as if I'm going to be running (I recently ran the same distance in 24 minutes) .... it's not about speed for me. It's a race where the results are never published unless you c... Read more
