34 years of endurance sports. At three events I finished absolutely last.
Endured a heart attack and major surgeries, but I'm still at it, only Open Water Swimming now.
Very ably supported by my Thai wife, Tip. We are living back in Malaysia and I swim to stay healthy.

First long ride
Actually the first long ride since IMWA 08 (excluding IMM). The last time I did this exact same ride was on 25 Oct 2008.
Cycling time was 8hr 44min vs 8hr 42 min previously.
Route was home - Ampang Hill - Batu 18 - Semenyih - Broga - Lenggeng (water stop) - KK Petronas (corn and water) - Perez reverse (57.5min) - First Kampong Grocery Store (jelly) - Batu 18 (100 plus, the tebu stall seems to have closed down) - Ampang Hill - Home (bought newspaper near the house).
Left home 7.47 am. Home 4.18pm
Average speed: 20.4 km/h
Weather: Cloudy / rain up to KK. Then sunshine, but not hot.
