The Jogathon notice was prominently pasted in the lift. So whenever I was in the lift with the office colleagues, they would say to me in admiration: “Wah, you sure win lah;” or “Sup Sup Sui for you runners lah;” or “Give chance man.” As for Penguin-2’s experience, his colleagues said that it will be “Sure win” for him.
I told them that I would not be able to participate in this run as we will be going down to Johor for the Johor Duathlon. Since there was sufficient time while waiting for the lift to travel to ground floor, I elaborated that in the Duathlon, we run 10 km, cycle 60 km follow by another 8 km run. Immediately, they would reply in rather similar manner, though in different occasions, “Wah, terror lah, how could you do it.” To many of the colleagues, running 10 km is considered “really very far already”.
Back to biking: Since yesterday, I have been going through the check-list getting things ready. In running, a runner only needs to bring the following items: running shoes, vest and shorts. In biking, however, a participant would involve almost 10 times more items to bring.
So, Penguin-2 and I are all set for the Johor Duathlon – no turning back. Wish us good luck, will ya?
For your information, I have created an email address link on the left-hand sidebar of the weblog, just in case you need to communicate with us.
Coming up: Penguin-1, -2 and -3 are representing their organization to participate in the coming Rat Race 2005 event again.
