Running Vs Cycling

So its been a long time since I wrote on my space here. The mundane routine of juggling between work and other essential things had kept me from coming here for so long.

Finally I have something really interesting and worth blogging about. One of the new friends I have in Hyderabad (Vamshi) got a new cycle....this has been on my wish list for a long time now. I been struggling to prioritize between two conflicting wishes I have: Cycling Vs Running.

These are the two things that have been pending for a long now. Let me begin my analysis with the quote:


Games require skill. Running requires endurance, character, pride, physical strength, and mental toughness. Running is a test, not a game. A test of faith, belief, will, and trust in ones self. So hardcore that it needs a category all to itself to define the pain. When game players criticize, it’s because they aren’t willing to understand, not because they’re stronger. Running is more than a sport; it’s a lifestyle. If you have to ask us why we run, you’ll never understand, so just accept.

– Jessica Propst

Swaroop has made a beautiful presentation on Running:

On the other hand we have more than 10,000 people participating in Cyclothon in Bangalore. People like Vikram Chadaga motivate you to go for cycling.

The best thing for me to do is try Running for next 1 week and see Vamshi enjoy his cycling for a week then decide on sharing my time for Cycling Vs Running.
