I accidentally tricked a few friend on FB with my status ‘Can’t wait for June 2010’. I’m not sure what is it like in other cultures in other countries, but here in Malaysia when you’re single(as in not married), and not so young anymore (ehem), and make statements like these, then 1 of the common reactions from friends would be ; ‘Are you getting married?’
Well, not so fast there.. ahhaa.. 2oth June will be the last exam date in my final year as an undergraduate. That if I don’t have to extend my course, for any reasons being. If I finish my courses earlier and manage to squeeze them within 14 weeks of studies, then it would be April 8th instead. But I doubt so.
After physio today, manage to find time,to sit, and plot out the series of races I’ll be doing for the 2nd half of this year . I’ve decided not to do Desaru and Putrajaya 70.3. Period.
Instead, I’ll be doing other races.., and having to skip Perhentian Island Challenge as well !!! Does not worry me one bit coz I’m saving up my knees for other races yeahh…
Confirmed races to go :
- Port Dickson International Triathlon 2009 (11/7)

I hope I will be able to juggle my priorities right.. especially with the Ironman training towards end of this year.. which of course, is not so very far away from now.. academics, training, part-time jobs, what else… I gotta slow down.. I am trying very hard to.. ahaaa.. Recently a friend told me I am out of control..Ironically, I wrote a post here in my blog last year entitled ‘26,267,2008, 2009 and in control’.. Click here if you wanna take a look at it.
Its hard to be in control all the time. But it is dangerous to let the reins loose to long. You might engage to a gallop, full speed, you can’t see whats in front of you, and then Wham ! I lost control once, while riding my dad’s horse, luckily didn’t fell down. Its nice to canter. Its nice to gallop too. But if you’re not careful, you might lose control and fall ! I was doing a full gallop on the track that I scared the other horses away !!!
Anyways, I’ve been waiting for more than a decade for the particular date stated here in the title. Looks like I’ve to slowly sketch what my next plans are and it will not be as easy as listing what races I wanna do. Sports is a healthy side dish for me. Where and what’s my main dish..? I’m still figuring it out.and won’t finish figuring out. It is an on going process. But me being a ‘1 at a time’ person, I might just as well concentrate on my academics 1st. Another freakin’ 12 months julie !!!!
Here are a few pictures from last night’s XTERRA committee appreciation dinner , at La Vacas, Kelana Jaya. I had the rib eye steak. Medium – well. Super yummy + juicy !
