First 4 hour marathon in India..

It was quite a warm Mumbai morning  on 17th January making this year's SCMM  very challenging specially from the sea link onwards when there was no water point for over 7Kms. In the last 3Kms it was a real tough physical and mental battle - but I am happy to report that I managed to push hard  and complete the run in the chip timing of 4 hours 56 seconds  shaving over 12 minutes off my last year's time and comfortably meeting my goal for this year. This is my fastest time for a FM in India and 2nd best time ever! The split timings are available here.

Will post complete details of the experience  by the weekend.
