What a great day for me today. I have been waiting for the Port Dickson International Triathlon registration to open and have been patiently browsing the Triathlon Malaysia website every day and today I got to finally register.
I’ve also been thinking of registering for the Adidas King Of The Road Malaysian edition so just to make today memorable I also registered for that.
So 2 registrations in a single day. Not bad eh?
This would make it my 7th and 8th registration this year and there’s plenty more to go.
The Adidas King Of The Road is part of a series of running events held in 5 countries in South East Asia. You get to run a total of 84 km (2 marathons) in 5 countries, Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia and ending in The Phillipines with each leg of the series comprising 16.8km.
What a fantastic concept. Unfortunately I’m only running in the Malaysia leg of the KOTR series (at least for this year). The first run in Thailand is on 15 May 2011 and I don’t think I have time to train for that run (there’s a 10km run in each leg as well but I’ve decided against entering those distances).
But I’ve entered the Malaysian leg of the run which will be held on 2 October 2011. It’ll be the longest distance I’ve entered so far and I’ve got plenty of time to train.
The run will start and finishes at Sunway Pyramid Shopping Mall. We’ll get to run the New Pantai Expressway which is way cool.
If you’re interested in joining go to the KOTR website to register.
This is the one I’ve been waiting for. My first triathlon. The PD triathlon is held between 23 – 24 July 2011 and comprises of a kids triathlon, a sprint and an Olympic Distance triathlon.
I am entered in the Sprint Traithlon Category held on 23 July 2011.
Sprint Triathlons comprises of a 750m swim, a 20km bike leg and ends with a 5km run. The Olympic Distance is twice the distance of the Sprint.
With this I can now officially state that I am now training for a triathlon. Woo hoo.
I feel so alive………
