10*10 Update (CTC Turns 10)

Success isn’t always about Greatness, It’s about Consistency.
Consistent Hard Work Gains Success,
Greatness will COME.. – Dwayne Jhonson 

The New Year Started with many more resolutions, promises, determinations & new goals. The month of Jan was bigger as our CTC organized first Ultra in Kodaikanal, the much awaited Ultra run. It is the maiden Ultra organized in lush green Kodaikanal hills which witnessed more than 1200 participants across categories- 130k, 80k, 50k, 21k, 10k &  5k (for kids). As usual, the relentless CTC volunteers put their heart to make this a BIG Success. A big shout to all the KHU participants & the Volunteers.
Auroville Marathon 2018– Much awaited marathon of the year through the beautiful trails in Auroville. Huge participation from CTC runners in this Mega Event.
Sharing excellent motivational write up by Brahdeesh:

“My mom’s maiden 10 k and my FM at Auroville trails”
Feeling excited to write a bit about the day. This is my first write up as I dont write in public forums..apologies for the big story.

Day before yesterday my mom joined my usual practise run. I asked her r u willing to come to auroville trail for which I was practising. Without any delay she told she would join. Was thinking OMG bib Ku na enga poven. Then posted the request in my beloved CTC 10×10 group. Surprisingly got a 10 k bib from pandi ( sorry pandi star…that’s how we call him). Done


Once again another issue.. travel…but this time no surprise our CTC family is always there…got car pooling to Pondy from Dinesh. Done

Started towards Pondy in car with my mom being very excited…,😍😍because its her maiden event..Now ofcourse stay.🤔🤔 We stayed in the tent provide by Saba and it was awesome..Done

My mom was very happy to stay in tent(this also first time). The next day morning she woke up early(4 am) to wish us for the run though she had her run at 7 am. I started my run with my beloved CTCians sub 3 group. Parallely I asked varatha to take care of my mom. I really want to thank Varatha and Manju for taking care of my Mom all the way..My mom was astonished by the way our CTC family treated her in the event. I also thank “Kushal Ahamed Shewatha Anbu Vinoth(barefoot runner) for making me run during the difficult times..it was funny asusal…😘😘 but Missing Ashish and Peter…
I once again thank each and every one for your support and wishes😀😀😍
It all started from my beloved Peteru…..when I joined him in the cleanup and also Vishal for selecting me in the first difficult trip with Peter🤗🤗
Sorry if I missed somebody to mention…As the status says there is no limit to sports and age. You can share this to your parents because there are more parents(inspirations) who are interested in such events but I feel we have to spent some time with them asking their likes and dislikes..signing off Thank you.
