Very proud of my son Rahul for successfully running his first half marathon at the "Rock & Roll Half Marathon" in San Jose today! He completed the run in 2:00:58, which is impressive for a first timer.

Rahul started running seriously over the summer with some of his friends and started to enjoy it. He surprised me one day by telling me that he wanted to run a half marathon and raise funds for "Asha for Education", a non-profit secular organization focused on basic education for underprivileged children in India. We looked at various possibilities and registered for this race. Rahul has worked hard on his training through the summer and also joined the school track team this year. He was rewarded.

You can donate to Rahul's fund raising effort and support Asha for Education.

I am very proud of my boy for setting a goal, working hard towards it and fund-raising for a good cause. Go Rahul!
