In the beginning of 2017, I was making significant progress as a blogger, my kids were growing up fine and my life at home in general gave me nothing to brood about much. Yet, I felt hollow within. It was a strange feeling. I didn’t know what exactly was a I lacking in life that was making me restless.

Come December, 2017 I came across Upasana’s blog and read about her Gratitude Pie. So my new year’s resolution for 2018 was keep a record of all the reasons I had to be thankful about during a day. Slowly lethargy took over, and I updated my gratitude pie once a week and then once a month.

Read my monthly gratitude posts here.

I participated in two half marathon’s last season, which were also my first and second marathons of my life. I realised that running a marathon entails different meanings for different people. For professionals it’s about the competition. But for most runners, a Marathon brings about a gamut of life lessons.  In this seven post series I am going to draw your attention towards these very life lessons.

My finish time for my first Marathon was 101 minutes. I was just glad that I crossed the finishing line. While for the second Marathon, I clocked a finishing time of 91 minutes. Yes, a straight 10 minutes reduction from the first one. The two Marathons were only 15 days apart, yet there was a sea change in my running experience. Continue Reading
