IronMan Langkawi 2008 Memories

They say a picture tells a thousand words. Here it is, a couple of hundred thousands words.


It started as a dream


I used up any resources i could find


I then had my medical done. Weigh was 73kg, height 172cm


Registered and now, I was an IronMan hopeful


U-Turn an option? I don't think so!


Reminder of what was to come in the evening


And this would be the best sight at the end of the day


Each bag denotes a transition and a reminder of the distance


Going to test the bike and bike route, with Doc, 2 time IronMan


Getting some tips from World Champ


With the monkeys up LISRAM highway


Reminder of why i am in Langkawi for


Practising Aero position


Iron(wo)Man Senn, second IM race for her


Monkeys


Best training partner with best bike


IronMan comes Saturday???


Another reminder why i was there


Speed weapondry all ready


My Dream on World Champ's Slice


Lord Monkey and his disicple


With Azmar - single, available, strong and definately a finisher


With Number One Water Boy, Bandit


IM 09 candidate. Budin and Bandit


3rd row from the tent - my bike awaits me; if i ever finish the swim, that is


Given by wifey, she will be in my head on race day


How the Pros does it


Calm before the storm


Branding it like a cow


Trying hard not to be nervous


With Jun Shen, youngest participant. For a moment, my smile looked like that Malaysian Astronaut, no?


YOU WILL DO IT!


I was estatic when i came out from the water...


So happy that i have 2 series of photo here


Might not meant a lot to others, but that 3.8km swim was my longest ever distance!


Pretending to hitchhike for the next 120km


At the Tanjung Rhu's u-turn


Caught up with Shazly after 120km


After 175km, i'm ALRIGHT!


Going strong after 20km


Got to stop for a while to cheer Jun Shen on. He is young and full of potentials


Trademark smile and thumbs up??? I don't look like i just swam and cycled the IM distance, don't i?


Thanks to Nike for the gears...no chaffing...no nipple bleeding


Cam Whore!


I could cry...i tell you...!


Yes, i did it.

Will i do it again?

Yes. But i'm secretly hoping that i would be sponsored for the race next year.

See you all in KL Marathon on the 30th March 2008!
