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 ;)
The weather was little cold compared to the planes of Dehradun with lots of breeze coming from Ganga. We walked to Laxman Jhula to cross it. Oh boy!

PaceMakers

Believe I shared it before  many times, my likeness of an active lifestyle. It was not  new to me but last year  found like minded group and joined them and now i can say i do exercise few times a week. A passion drives us to wake up at 4 AM twice on weekdays to reach stadium and start workout by sharp 5AM.  It is tough but once you reach there and start your day the whole day I find myself with plenty of positive energies.
This group is called PaceMakers and it is under the guidance of coach KC. He is a veteran runner  with many accolades. It also  feels like a being part of  big family.

Yesterday we had an awesome Birthday party celebrating coach’s birthday and sharing our new web site to the world. If you are looking for coach and a running group and stick with discipline you may want  try to run few times with us. Please take a moment to visit the  websites.

Driving Himachal

We are back to Bangalore from our first trip to Northern India. It was touching the dot of the "i"  in the amazing Incredible  India. The eco-friendly state of  Himachal Pradesh and Himalaya has so much to offer is just amazing.  Feeling proud to be Indian....really Amazing India! Abundance of natural beauty ranging from beautiful snow-capped and green mountains, at times rolling hills, valleys, mountains cut in mushroom shape to give way to narrow roads and tunnels, gushing river like Satluj, Beas, Ravi etc, meadows giving ways to rock around highest peak,waterfalls,apple orchards with great variation in climatic condition..... more said about it will be less....
