Skipped the 2012 Bangalore Midnight marathon

After having participated in every edition of the Bangalore Midnight marathon since 2007 I decided to miss this year's event that was held on 15th/16th December.  In the 1st edition held in May 2007 I did the full marathon. The 2008 edition was held in January 2009 - just a week before SCMM  -due to the Mumbai terrorist attacks in November 2008. So I did a 5K in this edition. In the 2009 and 2010  editions of the event I ran a fast HM as training  for SCMM. Last year in December 2011 I ran a 32K training run as part of the event.  However, I did an excellent 32Km run  on 15th (sat) morning rather than doing it at the midnight marathon thereby breaking my streak of participating in this event. Many of my friends who ran yesterday night had excellent runs partly helped by the cold weather.
