TMBT 2018 - 50km category

We signed up the race early this year in February, hoping to be fully prepared for it when the time comes. But a month later Fiza was hospitalized with the back problem and then she was busy with her classes & a new career. I also was buried with tons of workload, I always came home late and had to do my office works at home. It left us with almost no training. We only started training a month before the race with 3 times running a week for about 8-15km mileage without trail running. Yes, we didn't do any trail running at all this year. TMBT is well known as the most grueling trail course comparing to any other trail events in Malaysia. There are many people DNF even for 50km and 30km category and we regret we signed up 50km, we think we will be DNFed. To make it worse I left my 20 packets of power gel given by Laif at home. Then Fiza's water bladder was leaking. And I brought the wrong shoes for the race. All recipes for disaster. We wished we had signed up 30km.... ohhh…

Family Trip to Melaka on motorcycles

One day we decided to go ride to Melaka together with Auni & Harraz as pillions. It was a spontaneous decision. It seems they enjoy the ride and a little bit of heat actually...haha. In Melaka we checked-in to a budget apartment belong to Fiza's friend. At night we strolled along Jonker Street and Kampung Morten. The next day, we went to several museums and historical landmarks around Bandar Hilir. Later that day, my in-laws joined us and we went for more jalan-jalan & makan-makan. A great small weekend gateway. Should try to do it more often. 

Kapas Marang 2018 and Jalan2 in Terengganu

This year I didn't take part because as usual, I don't want to get bitten by sea lice again like last year. I also need to take care of Fiza because she insisted to participate despite her back problem. So, I borrow an inflatable canoe from OP Dr Syed Dollah to accompany her in the sea in case anything wrong happens. Luckily, there was nothing bad happened. Fiza managed to complete her swim within the cut off time. 

After the event, we went jalan-jalan around Kuala Terengganu. We sleep over in a relative's house for one night before heading back to Kuala Lumpur the next day.


This year I was decided to run a full marathon, probably the one and only marathon this year...

Probably I will race in SCKLM again and make it my annual event many more years to come
