“A divorce crushed my heart, but not my spirit. I swim, bike, run for my kids, for my health and for my soul. I trained like a man possessed. I compete because there's no greater high in the world. I have heroes but don't see myself as one. I'm an athlete, just like you.”
After 4 years in hiatus, Ironman Langkawi came back this year on 27th September. I decided to go to Langkawi to cheer all my friends especially Team OP. This year the number of participants doubled up compare to the last time I did in 2010. Luckily, the weather is so nice in September unlike what I had to endure an extremely hot weather at the peak of dry season in month of February. However, bike route was pretty tough this time around with quite steep rolling hills at Datai.
Well, I can't say much about the race experience because I didn't compete this year. Please enjoy the photos below:
