Running in Chennai

I came down to Chennai from Bangalore for few days training before running the marathon on sunday 5th Feb 2006.
Well yesterday after reaching Chennai, I did a short run in terms of distance. Today I went for longer distance. The route I went over was
K.K.Nagar – PTC Training College – Ashok Nagar Police station – Samiyar Madam – Power House – Kodambakkam flyover – North Usman Road – Doraisamy Road subway – Ashok Nagar Police Station – PTC Training college – K.K.Nagar

The total distance would be around 12 – 14kms and I did this in 1hr!! Better timing than in Bangalore for a similar distance. The difference is flat roads in Chennai and no dust.
By the time I finished running my whole body was filled with sweat and there was no space in shirt/short to get filled up with some more sweat. The biggest difference between running in Bangalore and Chennai is this.

Tomorrow I might try out running on the Beach, hopefully.
