The Ironman Langkawi officially started today at 7.30am at Jetty Kuah, Langkawi.. I could not make it there to support fellow friends who are taking part. Major Kalam, Azwar, Stupe, Abu and Sandy among a few. 🙂 And having your mobile phone R.I.P 5 days ago adds more to the frustration.. hampa.. 😦 Couldn’t sms and call.. Anyway, I manage to call Major Kalam before race day. They were carbo-loading when I called. My wish for all friends and triathletes taking part in this race is that ALL finish the race and come back safely ! The clock on my wall shows 4.30pm.. Already 9 hours ! So some may be running or cycling . For full race coverage , please log on to ironmanlive.com.
