While expecting my right knee to recover from previous marathon I enrolled in another half marathon which was to be hosted by Amity group in Gurugram on February 9th, 2020, provided it was my first race of 2020. Unfortunately my knee pain has made me rollback to 10 Km run.
I reached the venue by boarding metro from Green park on yellow line and reach the race venue by 6.30 am. There were around 15000 participants and most of them were college students. The race began at 7.30 am and I started 4 minutes later.
Initially I ran at a moderate pace for first 5 km and gradually increased my pace and made sure no one overtakes me. After covering 8 km I started to feel heaviness and pain in my right knee and I slowed myself again and covered the race within 53 minutes.
After race completion I came across one of my juniors in school time Ashiv Kumar and then we collected our medals, certificates and refreshments.
This was an easy race where I not applied any extra efforts due to my knee injury.
