Yessss… I did it again! I’m 2 times Ironman!!!

I’m having Post Ironman Depression Syndrome (PIDS) right now. I have no mood to write a report. If you wish to read a race report I suggest you to visit OP Stupe’s blog. He wrote his Ironman experience this year very detail until you can visualize yourself in the race. Anyway, enjoy some IM photos below.

congratulations for completing another IM sir..
i wonder why so many OPs join IM..
may be tak puas kena ragging.. haha
Anonymous said…
YES, you are, and many times over!

Sometimes a picture paints a thousand words. Your experience was well conveyed there. (Plus your hp number, hehehe!).

And yeslah, how come RMC churns out many IMs, eh? TKC only one.
Kam Kasturie said…
Thank you Chan & Haza :)
I started all these pun becoz of my OP friends. Like OP Bandit, OP Ala, OP Budin dan ramai lagi. OPs mmg suka kena torture.... hahaha

Haza... My phone number is for ladies to call me up ;)
Btw, who's that TKCian completed an IM?
Anonymous said…
Julie lah! She got nominated for TKC's 100 inspiring personalities or something like that. Awesome.

I always think IMs are outta this world!
Kam Kasturie said…
Oh ya la, I forgot she was from TKC.
But to be in RMC's 100 inspiring personalities we got to do something beyond IM like being in a war.
(I'm watching "The Hurt Locker" now)
EnAikAY said…
Well done Kam!

Hopefully the remaining 10% will grow to 80% or something, when the registration for IM 2011 opens :)
Congrats Kam! You are one determined Ironman. So proud of you!
Kam Kasturie said…
Thanks Nik & Kash!
I promised myself to take a break from IM next year but I dont mind breaking the promise :D
Tgk la macam mana nanti.
ian yusof said…

heckler said…

I must say the race is nothing, the friends that's around for us were something!
