I have participated in Tropical Rush last time. Those two days were really packed with plenty of fun moments. I have joined the team there along with couple of friends of mine. I remember how beautifully each event or activity has turned our sports freaks inside on. Cycling, mud race, obstacle race, marathon etc were there which led us to be a part of the beginning of some new friendships. We have gone through so much of laughter, so much of masti there. The event was well organized as everyone got the chance to completely involve in the each of the activities. The appreciation medal they have given is an acknowledgement for our sportsman spirit. But one thing I would like to point out is that if there is more number of people, you can lift the event up to another level. All these activities demand energy and enthusiasm in abundance. Also, if you compete with a huge team, you can enjoy much more. So it would be great if you spread the word among other sets of people including the locals. The food served was also good but it would be great if you can keep some energy bars handy so that you won’t feel tired very much at the end of the race. I was feeling completely happy not because I finished the race first but I became friends with a lot of like- minded people and through which I get to know that each moment should be celebrated. Hence, I am so eager to suggest everyone to partake in this event. Trust me; you would be exploring the new definitions of happiness here. And what now! Of course I am going once again to meet those teams of sports freaks.
