Laughing oldies ruined a good start

Today I was determined to run for atleast a minute at a stretch. I started slowly and kept pushing myself and was able to clock sixty seconds of jogging without a break. The continuous rain helped a lot. As I stopped for giving my aching legs some respite a bunch of oldies started laughing really hard. Though I know that they are part of the "laughing club" but, at that moment it felt like they were laughing at me. I felt like running away from there but running was the problem, so I had to face the humiliation. When I was a kid, I used to laugh at these oldies all the time but today their laugh was hurting me more than my legs. Why the hell should I make myself a subject to laugh at? I should seriously give it up. I think I will give up soon.

I am starting a bet on it. I say Tarun will quit in 2 weeks and will never run the marathon. Anybody wants to bet with me on this..?? I am offering odds of 1:10.

Quit in 2 weeks no. Run the marathon no.
I will take the odds for the quitting in two weeks. 100 bucks he wont quit...

--> Krity: Thanks for the words of inspiration. Not going to to give up in the first week.

--> Gaurav: Three days back I would have frowned upon this but currently even I am in doubts. Acting as an opportunist hmm...

--> Barada: If I can survive 2 weeks, I think I have fair chance of running in the marathon as well. I am not sure how the next week will go, a lot depends on that.
