All the best to Miro - Great Wall Marathon this weekend

Miro at IM China
Doing another outstanding race soon (The Great Wall Marathon on 15 May 2010) is my many times race buddy, MIRO BLANARIK. Its pronounced "Mee ro" not "My ro". I'm the culprit that always pronounces his name wrongly. Miro has done many nice Ironman (IMWA, China, Msia, Europe) and 70.3 (Worlds, China, Cobra) races all over the world.

He works for an IT Company in Malacca (Infineon Technologies). A former employee of that IT Company in Malacca is married to multiple Ironman Champion, Sonja Tajsich (who recently won Spec Savers IM South Africa 2010) and Ironman Malaysia in 2006. Sonja trained in Malacca in 2006 and 2007. i.e. we all should move to Malacca then.

Miro has a very lovely wife by the name of Nicole who are expecting their first child anytime now. She is especially friendly, we have spoken to her many times.

Ha ha (a secret). The first time I saw Miro was when (heh heh) he was taking down the Ironman banner in front of Sea View Hotel after IM MY 2009 (with permission).

Miro is an extraordinary race person. He did IM MY on 27 Feb, IM China on 14 March and Aviva one week later. He posted consistently very good times for all the three races. No bad days.

We wish Miro all the best for the Great Wall Marathon, KL Half Marathon, IMWA and of course congratulations for his about to be born new baby.
