It was last held here in February 2010. I was there too, though only on the sidelines. Supporting some friends, and witnessing their courage and determination to get to the finish line in 17 hours or less.
I haven't done it myself yet, but I always wanted to do it.
To become like one of them.
The good news is, it is coming to town again - in September 2014.
The long wait has finally come to an end.
Official announcement has been made, and friends are busy talking about it over FB day and night.
Registration fee is going to be an issue for some, if not for many.
Though transportation and accommodation may not be so much of a deal for some, they still involve a good sum of hard-earned-money to spend.
Some will even have to train without hi-tech gadgets in the names of GPS watches, heart rate monitors, let alone power meters like some others do.
Some will spend even more time tweaking their training plans, scratching heads in the middle of the night thinking how could they balance the 24 hours into work time, family time, social needs time, own time, and training time.
Some others around them who are yet to understand the passion, will continue to ask questions of which they won't be able to comprehend the answers given.
But to live a life without dreams, is almost similar to not living a life - some say.
At least I know mine.
"M-dot dream", is one of my dreams.
