What it means to be MRR

It was on a hot sultry April morning in 2015 that I stumbled upon this vibrant group of runners, thanks to a runner friend Ajit Singh who invited me for the run.  “It is from Bandra to NCPA which happens every first Sunday of the month”, he told me.

A run on Friday the 13th
