Fuming I said, who is knocking at the door at 4:30 pm ".Living in India summers I was forever lazy of getting up early. I descended from the stairs with my eyes almost closed barely hanging on with my hands on the railing. I open the door and see my bestie Sakshi standing there, I was surprised she is not the waking up early type. I asked her this and she said that she is following and exercise regime and I need to help her without the choice to say no .my eyes (opened now ) became narrow and my eyebrows raised I stormed upstairs angrily, changed into my jogging suit and joined her on her run.


you may think I was a fool to agree with her against my wish but soon enough you'll find out!


Aah, aah, aah I panted we just aah, ran 10 km at a stretch. I used to be a marathon runner, eventually went out of practice and suddenly 10 km seems so difficult. We ran by the shopkeeper setting his stock in place, the runners at the park who now look like their professionals and the sunflowers turning toward the sun right after it rose .and I ran into my college frenemy, Tara. more enemy and fewer friends, anyways she met me with a fake smile and said " Hi just on my 20 km run, you know practice cause I'm running that 50 km marathon next month. you should come! " I smiled and said no thanks .she couldn't bear that and had to put me down, so she went "oh right it is only for people who are good at sports "


That was it, that was all it took, my exact words not to be repeated I told her she was a snob and that I was good at many things she isn't and that I challenge her to come first in the marathon. BIG MISTAKE. I trained every morning from 4:30 to 6:30 by run-in 25 km every day. it was hard and it hardly made sense to me but nobody can tolerate Tara.


Sakshi, as crazy as she is she decided to wake me up every morning and go to sleep herself. I only realized this 3 days before the marathon that while I was 5 sips down with my coffee she was 5 dreams down and while my coffee level went down hers went up, mostly cause she was drooling in it that explains the audio call when I hear all kinds of strange noises, it was her snoring !!!!!!!!!! training may have been hard but the day by day those noodle muscles of mine became of steel and my diet certainly more concentrated .on the very last day I ran 50 km at a stretch with a time of 1 hr.


oh gosh, oh gosh, oh gosh its the final day: the day of the marathon

I don't know why but I feel so excited and of course, nerves .anyways I get to the marathon path and start warming up when to spoil my perfect mood comes Sakshi she gives me her fake smile again and gives me a look .to take my mind off I listen t the rules and as soon as the horn blows we all started running and soon enough without heavily breathing I crossed the 10km sign. I was happy, but my legs stopped suddenly, and my eyes were alert I heard somebody screaming.


It was the shopkeeper I asked him what the commotion was about, very conveniently not answering me he continued screaming. there I see a man dressed in black running away with a bag full of money. I had this random surge of energy felt like I had never before I ran after the thief and without thinking jumped and landed on a cushion made of money. I unmasked the thief and found out it was her.


Anyways I made her return the money to the police I asked "why? "in reply, she burst out crying and explained she didn't have any money to feed her children. I took her back to the marathon and promised her that she would never have to steal again. I made her sit in the audience and began running.


quite obviously
