First Week Of Training


Day1: 6:30am Lalbagh
Uncharacteristic morning showers on the day meant that we got drenched. The first day enthusiasm & talks about the impending Maiyya breakfast took us through to the end of a 2 hour work out.

Day2: 9:00am Cubbon Park
In between figuring out the logistics at this first time training location & the lure of a visit to MTR, we managed to squeeze in just about 4kms of walking.

Day3: 6:30am Lalbagh
Some new gear (Runkeeper on all phones, new shoes / t-shirts / shorts for the shortest team mate) & the goal of doing 10k, took us far on the day. Not only did we complete the 10k, we did it in good time & managed a smile even after the session (proof attached). Badam halwa at Maiyyas was the carrot to set longer goals for the next weekend.

15k x 4 team members is the goal for the next weekend.

MOTR_SeperatorMOTR_FB_Cover[4]Mocha On The Run (MOTR) is our initiative to raise funds for Oxfam India by undertaking the Trailwalker challenge – a 100KM walk in 48 hours. You can support us & Oxfam by making a donation here.

Oxfam India’s vision is ‘Right to life with dignity for all’. Oxfam works primarily through grassroots organizations to bring about deep rooted sustainable changes in people’s lives through long-term development programming linked to positive policy changes at various levels.

By supporting a Trailwalker team, you are making a significant difference to the lives of others. The money you raise builds the lives of some of India’s most disadvantaged communities but people you support don’t want to survive on aid and assistance forever. They have the right to lead a dignified independent life.
