Mount KK Climbathon – 23 Oct

The day for committing to participate in Mount Kinabalu Climbathon (23 October) arrives eight months in advance. Today (3 March), Air Asia starts the big sale with the extremely low fares to Kota Kinabalu – only RM 43 one way! So we took the opportunity and scramble to book the flights.

One excellent motivating factor is to commit with payment first, whether in booking the flight or paying the registration fees. Then one would be motivated to train, even on rainy days.

Without any commitment, I certainly would find excuse not to train. I remember waking up one Wednesday morning at 5:00 a.m.; standing by the bed, I was thinking hard whether I should go out to run. After much thought, I just went back to continue my sleep.
