I went to Langkawi...

...to witness the TOUGHEST SHOW on earth! The Langkawi Ironman Triathlon 2010

Yeah, anything is possible, if you want it to be.

I snapped around 350 pictures while I was there, supporting some friends competing. I had good time being there, witnessing with my own eyes how these strong triathletes struggling in their own battles to get to the finish line. Very inspiring indeed.

And as a big bonus for me, I made lots of new friends. How glad I am.

I definitely will spend extra time updating the Langkawi Ironman story, from my perspective as a spectator and supporter. Not sure when I will get it done, but it surely will come up soon, insyaAllah. I need to get it down quickly before I start forgetting some key points. Plus, many photo editing jobs too.

Hanging out on the race morning with brother Razani, our local Ironman hero. I got lots of training tips from him. Thanks bro.

To all friends who attempted IM Langkawi 2010, you guys have very brave souls. Respect!

And to all who made it to the finish line, WELL DONE and big CONGRATULATIONS to all of you. You guys did an awesome job!!!

Imagine standing and riding motorbike under the heat of the sun for the whole day with short sleeves shirt, and WITHOUT applying any sunblock (i forgot, stupid mistake).

My forearms are still burning 'red'.

Ironman 2011 in the making. Sure training tahap gaban lepas ni. Ni bukan setakat keting avatar, you are the avatar bro. Go ahead. Insyallah you have my support =)

Syah,
It's too inviting n intimidating lah, for triathletes syok sendiri like me at least.

Shakhir,
Gaban ke, Avatar ke, Batman ke, Adnan Sempit ke.. belasah je lah. Aku tak terer mcm tahap gitu la. Aku sekadar swim/bike/run sambil berhibur aje hehehe.
Thanks in advance for the support. Kalau nak sponsor Powergel seketul dua pun aku alu2kan...

Sofian,
I didn't do anything much. You guys were the one who worked the hardest to finish the race.
Well done once again.

ziff71 said...

Go for it Bro! It is surely not impossible for u lah :)

yipwt said...

hi Nik,

Thanks for your support. I was wondering who is this person going up and down the running course...

without the cheering...probably I'll just walk the whole course.

cheers...

..::EnAikAY::.. said...

Ziff,
If it is not impossible for me, then it is not impossible for everybody too, right? We just need to clock sufficient training for it.

Yip,
Thanks, and it was my pleasure cheering for you and witnessing you going on the battle to the finish line. Very impressive effort.
I did nothing much, really.

Hey Paul,
It was my pleasure. I envy you guys who have the guts to do Ironman. That gives me the same boost to continue involving in triathlon.

Kam said...

Thanks for the support Nik. Sorry i didnt recognize you at first. I was tired, my head was spinning and I had to race against time. On top of my head, I tried to compute who is this guy, he looks so familiar. Please share with me any of my race photos. Thanks again bro!!

..::EnAikAY::.. said...

It's ok Kam. Though i haven't took part in Ironman, with no doubt i know it's a tough game to finish.

Drop me an email (refer to my blogger profile) and i'll fwd some photos to you.

Well done again Kam. You did an awesome job!
