|Kimberly Shah – Triathlete in Ahmedabad
I read today that Ahmedabad (aka Amdavad, my hometown in India) held its first Triathlon last month. I was excited to read that it was hosted by Sports Club where I used to play competitive badminton when I was a kid. The tri itself was a “super-sprint” with only a 200 meter swim, an 8 km bike and a 2.5 km run.
I want to mention and thank Kimberly Shah in this blog who was one of the organizers (she is a triathlete from Chicago and you can read her blog here). Now I have to add one more thing to my limited “bucket-list” – do a triathlon in Ahmedabad. I will try and coordinate my India-travel schedule with an Ahmedabad triathlon in late 2014 or 2015.
As for my training, I continue to feel better sans the occasional muscle spasms in my lower left back. I had a spasm this evening that lasted about 15 minutes. It was agony while it lasted, but otherwise there is barely any noticeable pain. Today was another lazy rest day. Binita and I went on a date to a pretty decent restaurant called The Gladly near the Biltmore. I had medium-rare Wagyu burger (which was slightly overcooked). I am a pretty harsh critic of restaurants and I gave this one a solid 6.5 on a scale of 10. (Note: so far, there has been only 1 restaurant that has scored perfectly – Bukhara in New Delhi).
