99 miles running in 51 days...

i have completed running 99 miles this year. The target for this year is 1000 miles...To achive this goal,i have to run an average of 3.3 miles for the rest of this year (considering non runnin days of 30 days for my india trip, sickness etc)

The Bridges of Madison County

The following are two beauiful statements from the movie...

"I dont think obsessions have reasons, that is why they are obsessions."

"The Old dreams were good dreams. They did not workout, But i am glad i had them."

Initially i felt Francesca's motive is driven by physical lust, then when i watched some selective scenes from the initial part of the movie, i felt its not just about physical lust. She is just swept away by clint eastwood's personality.

Create a Channel in Youtube

I would like to create a channel in youtube and link that to this blog, so that the blog readers can enjoy some good videos. Most of the videos would be music videos, mostly tamil. If someone can send me a tutorial, that would be great

Precor Commercial Treadmill for Home

Kavitha and I liked the Precor C954 treadmill at our Spectrum healthclub. Though there were many treadmills available with better features like inbuilt fan and more programs, the Precor C954 treadmill was amazing. The Ground effects technology that Precor uses is so good that one would not feel any pressure on the joints. Its also easier to run faster on this treadmill than any other treadmill. So when we decided to buy a treadmill for our home, this was the first choice. When i enquired with Precor, i realised thhat this treadmill costs $7500. That was surely not the investment i was willing to make. Then, i slowly realised that the number of this treadmill at Spectrum kept decreasing and that had me worried. What if they remove everything from there? WHere will i run? SO i went and asked the manager if they would be selling me one of the treadmill that they have been removing from this place and they said YES. So, finally, i brought home this baby for $700. Kavitha and I ran our first 2 miles today on this machine. Kavitha ran in the evening and i ran at midnight. I am tensed and awaiting news from the resident at the 2nd floor, if i disturbed them.

En Enakku Mayakkam - Naan Avan Illai

This is one of the best tamil song, that kept me humming for a long time..

Best sleeping experience

We have been putting Rishi to sleep by putting him on to a graco swing. Even when he does not want to sleep, the constant swing action (sometimes for over 30 minutes), makes his brain go dizzy and then he eventually sleeps...All through this time, we have to sing some song in addition to the swing's automated animal sound (he likes the forest sound). Three Days back, Kavitha decided to read books to him by putting him on to the bed and then swith off the lights after 20 minutes of reading. After the lights are off, he lies on the bed and tosses and turns and goes to sleep after 30 minutes or so. He has not made any Drama till now, hope he continues to go to sleep like this.

Coming to my sleep, i lie down with him and am are of my going into the sleep state. Till date, i go to bed when i really feel sleepy and then fall asleep without knowing. But with him around me, i have to be little conscious and in that process i am realising myself going to sleep and this is a wonderful experience. I can slowly feel my feet getting warm and my body getting real cosy. The feeling at this time is so great that i have started to love it. Its real joy to be conscious of going into the unconcious state (to the sleep mode).
