My first ever run as a mentor :-)

Okay, so I am a mentor of a running group (eloquently named 6.b :-)

We met on Monday, 04/24/06 at Charleston Park adjacent to Googleplex at 7pm. This was the route we took for our nice and easy 1.6 mile long warm-up run. We followed it up with a good session of stretching and strengthening exercises till 8.30pm. I can not help noticing how much more I am learning about the exercises this year than last... Simply because I have to teach this year, I am going over them again and again, while last year... well, the less said the better... Hopefully, I will avoid my lower leg injury this year by doing proper strengthening exercises regularly. And I hope my mentees will be better students than I was...

It's time for 2006!

Stretching Session April 21, 2006
So, it is 2006 and the running season is back again. This time, I am signed up as a mentor, and a runner. It feels really nice to be back with the tremendous group of people I first met last year as well as to meet new folks. It is quite interesting to me -- not to sound snobbish or self-praising -- how such events attract certain like minded people having a certain above-average qualities of will, determination and perseverance. Onwards...
