A first timer:
"I've been in India for more than two months and this was the first time I've been able to socialize with anybody from the LGBT community. It was great. We ended up a group of nine total, 5 walkers, 3 runners, and one partner/sitter. Four men and five women who ranged in ages from University students to probably slightly more than twice that age. For me, it was really nice to meet a bunch of new people who were NOT associated with my work. It was great to be able to just chat about politics, India, economics, travel and, well - yes - some gay issues too.
 
After the run/walk, most of us went to have a cold drink together. Later, one of the other participants and I went out for dinner before saying good night. I travel a lot; but I do plan to make DFR part of my regular routine as much as I can. What an excellent way to meet people and make new friends!"

 

An old timer:
"I arrived early at the park and the heat forced me to walk the first round. I felt really out of touch and a touch dis-spirited....But lo and beyond what a surprise to lift the spirits as I made it to the usual meeting spot.

Not one not two but three new front runners....first timers. So exciting to meet and see them. a couple of old timers arrived a little later ..with two more newbies. What a momentous day for front runners. With therefore had a large walking group and a running group. We soldiered on in the heat with the walkers making time for two rounds....

It makes it all worthwhile when new people come and get excited and say they are so glad to have found the group. We told them about our humble beginnings and aspirations - and how we surprised ourselves with running the half marathon these last two years.....and our champion marathon runners at the Copenhagen [Outgames]."
