Day 3 - Rishikesh

The weather looked gloomy with an overcast sky as we woke up. We had breakfast at the hotel and decided to visit Rishikesh today. Again we headed back the way we came yesterday and after crossing Rajaji National Park the road divides and one goes towards to Dehradun and one to Rishikesh. The drive was pleasant, as we opted Laxman  Jhula as our destination google map smartly took us via highway bypassing the main city.But at the end the roads started to get narrower lucky for us we found a parking lot packed yet as we early risers ;)

Pinkathon

Pinakthon is a initiative to encourage todays women of India to participate in active life style. Being  little active myself I know it is very difficult for modern urban Indian women to follow the same. There are many logistical issues staring from family, in-laws, sons, daughters, job and what not.

But the biggest block I think is they themselves as to take initiative of starting an active lifestyle and being committed to it which is not an easy commitment . Though I am not expecting them to run Full-Marathon in sub 3 hours but even if they can do atleast 30 minutes of speed walk or other cardiac activities on daily basis that would be great.
So this year, Pamela & Pixy signed up for the 5K events. Picture courtesy to Flashbulbzz.
