DESARU 18 AUG HALF IRONMAN




I think everyone was happy. For the first time in any triathlon, there was no sun at all. Many of the fast boys did incredible times, whilst we slow ones managed to finish the race comfortably.




My time was 6 hrs 32 mins for which I am extremely happy. I actually was able to run (albeit slowly), which must be my longest run since the injuries in 2002.


Out of the swim with Don man, not bad for someone with a broken arm. Actually I drafted Fiona Lim the whole way during the swim so I don't have to worry about sighting.

The swim was extra long which helped me, otherwise many more would have overtaken me.




No sun during the bike and run. It felt like everyone overtook me on the bike. Never mind lah. Average speed was about 28 km/hr. Hopefully I can still improve the bike.








Happy finishers. Thanks to Edwin's Group for accepting me in their group. They comprised Willy, Omar, Ariff & May Senn, Rob and wife, Yusran and wife, Randy. Congrats to fellow competitors Adrian, Steve Lee, Stupe, Shazly (always called me sir -RMC style), Bacin, Ong etc.

LANGKAWI HERE WE COME
