Muahahaha! The year is coming to an end and fellow athlete friends are busy compiling stats of running miles logged. I reckon it was one great year for everyone which we should be thankful that we could live another day and watch the sun, the birds and the bees and of course our love ones. Cherish them while we can. Jazakallah.

First quarter was the biggest achievement in my cycling. The miles were unbelievable but once commitments were locked, it was now or never (sebenarnya sebab dah bayar fee PCC Interstate mahal. keh keh keh). If you're an enthusiast cyclist, doing ONE interstate ride is a must. The satisfaction was awesome. The camaraderie was a pleasurable one. If I have the chance, a repeat is possible.
Though I was a bit too ambitious to hit two birds with one stone, I was too weak to even pick up the stone and throw at the birds. Hahaha. Faktor usia. After the Interstate, the window was too narrow for me to recover AND train for KL Marathon. I struggled. And failed to get the ultimate strength. There is a saying by my orang kampung (dahsyat orang kampung aku ni) "Go out and give 100%, or don't go at all". So I didn't. Ultimate sufferfest by NOT respecting the distance is obviously unwise. Sapa nak gosok baju kalau dah kengkang seminggu?! Hang habaq mai! That's where June was zero running miles :|
Well, these are sporadics. The main reason I was hooked to it was due to the lambungan ombak beracun by friends for my first tri event. Alhamdullillah it went OK though it was only a runcit-runcit category BUT by making the big leap into the open water was major...well, at least for me.
