“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.”
PD Isla A Isla Swim (Bagan Pinang Island - Batu Arang island)
I have not done open water swim since Kapas-Marang in 2008 and I only swam 5 times this year. Pretty tough event for off seasoned like me. Although the course only 3.5km but most of us swam around 4km and being pushed backward by the current in the middle of the sea.
Last time I raced in Desaru was 6 years ago. It was Uncle Chan's event but now a Singaporean event company took over it and because of that the race fee was exorbitant!! Unfortunately, I don't earn in SingDollar :(
