Registered for Langkawi Ironman 2009



I have finally confirmed registration for Ironman Langkawi 2009.

The office was hard too find, and there was no hint on being a center for Ironman races. Later I found out, there's other branches as well. A poster of Faris al Sultan would had been more convincing.

I met with a lady called Miss Lyn. We chatted awhile, and I had the chance to glance at the participation list. Notably, Siok Bee, opstupe, and michelle looi was there.

And oh yeah, if anyone aiming for KONA Hawaii, there's 35 slots available, excluding two for Malaysians. But the man to beat would be Wong Ah Thiam.

To be an ironman, you have to complete 3.8km swim, bike 180km, and then run a marathon. It's definitely going to be tough just to finish.



Now it's time to train...like an ironman would.

aini,

Thanks

c-cube,
Wow...I dunno if I rock langkawi, or i get rocked by langkawi.

anonymous, s?
That is pretty crazy. Yea...actually the definition of ultraman is double ironman...but there's triple, quadraple, 5, 8, and 10 ironmans distances done before. Nobody sane will do that. Ironman is insane enough.

See you at Langkawi man!

UltraMan is a little more: 10km swim and 400km+ bike, finishing with double marathon. But you get 3 days and good 6-12hr sleep breaks.

Ride the hills, Langkawi route has had some hills which veteran IMers dismounted and walked up. Give Camerons a go, either from Tapah or Spg Pulai. S
