Running madly after a woman!!

After buying a scooter recently, I’m teaching my wife how to ride. First we tried taking doubles ride, and me helping with the handle from behind, but this proved to be a difficult one as she found it difficult to manage the extra weight of me. So now she rides alone and I’m assigned to run behind the scooter holding the carrier bar.

Every evening after coming from work, I simply run behind my wife!!. With some more of these running, I should be able to participate in the next Olympics for marathon and hopefully win it, atleast for my dad who heard the news of my running from an unknown source, called me once over phone and reprimanded, and I just about managed by saying it’s part of my daily exercise – poor old fellow, how can he understand the dog’s life of a modern-day husband.

By the way, if you’re in Bangalore and happened to see someone running like a mad man at 50 mph after a scooter driven by a woman, it’s Joshi Mukard.


P.S: In one of my previous posts, I have mentioned how I got into buying a scooter. To read, click here.

About Joshi Mukard (100 Articles)
The author is a wandering soul with no place to call 'home-town'. He was born in Kerala, brought up in several parts of Tamil Nadu, and currently living in Bangalore, shifting his base across the city on a yearly basis with fellow (unfortunate) wanderers, his wife (Libena) and little daughter (Tanaya). Despite all these, the author is a happy soul with no complaints on anything. He wakes up in the morning and sleeps at night and in-between he ducks, stumbles and dances through this world.

  3. Happy Running…

  4. Ha, ha keep running u will build stamina….But how do you manage to run on the clogged blore roads…?
    Bhaag Joshi bhaag….
    BTW where in Blore do you stay? Until recently I was on the Bannerghata road….

  5. lol. This reminds me the time when my dad taught me to ride the bicycle. He used to huff and puff, holding the bicycle seat, as I peddled the perimeter of our colony. He must’ve lost a few kgs by the time I got the balance right. You’re behind the scooter, you must be super fit now 😀

  6. I can understand. Replace Wife with Mom and that is my story.

  7. Hahah, The title was too funny to skip this post. I think I have seen you 😛

  8. o god! so cute! I’m in splits reading this one….cheers to the “racer couple” 😀 🙂

  9. Nice way to maintain fitness and showing solidarity with your wife:)

  10. now i’d have to stalk the Bangalore roads to catch the glimpse of THE funny man following a woman on a scooter…with luck i won’t be jailed!:-)

    if nothing else, yes you might have an alternative career in the Olympics:-)
    and btw how long does she need you run after her-are you sure it is not a trick to derive sadist pleasure of you panting behind her for old times’ sake?;-)

  11. Ha ha ha… I am sure the evenings are entertaining now. All the best with the lessons! 😀

  12. Dear friend, run beside her lah! Why run behind n eat dust?! Hehe.. Whatever it is, as long as she is happy, you are happy, I am happy! Be well n happy always!! 😀

  13. Ha ha Hilarious. More amusing is the cartoon for it seems a young boy is running after his mom riding the scooter. LOL

    Give a click:

  14. heehee 😀 Good for you. 😛 This will keep you fit. 😉 See how considerate your wife is about your health. 😉 How can we women be so good! 😉

  15. A stitch in time saves nine…so a little bit of running now would free u of the future ‘drop n pick up’ thalavedana! So this time joshi is all out for ‘women empowerment’ 😉 So can ur wife finally ride the bike now?

  16. Glad she’s mobile, Joshi. Wish her happy riding from me. I remember I had a moped (no clutch and gears) when I was a teenager and it was the joy of my life.

  17. bad knees – very true.

    I read about your book, as soon as possible I will try to get a copy.

  18. Thanks muchly, Jm. That would be awesome..

  19. Now it wudnt be difficult to spot you from the bangalore crowd..there wudnt be many who do this 🙂 but looking from the positive side,will help you shed that few extra kgs…:-) Life’s like that

    • But you have missed the chance to spot me. I no longer run after my wife because she has become an expert rider, and the second reason being, I have shed a lot of weight that even I couldn’t recognize myself. Haha!
