When I was young...

Sometimes, I let my mind wander,
Of the times when I was younger,
What was it that I wanted to do when I was older

I wanted to travel,
And let the world unravel,
Before and in front of me,
Cos there was so much to do and see

I started with the mountain hikes,
From snowy tops to dry, barren peaks
The treks were tough and sometimes took weeks
But the company I had, made everything look easy and meek

Then afterwards, I went to dive,
First in the sea and then the sky,
It was amazing, it was great, it was totally out of this world
And each time, each dive, I've never felt so much more alive

Then I had a dream,
To run, and swim, and cycle,
The journey was tough, it was long, it seemed
But now (after a year) that I've done it,
I can't get enough of it.

Now I want to move on to the next thing on my list,
First to wakeboard, then to kiteboard,
To ski in the snow and and also to snowboard,
And if I ever get a chance, to sandboard as well.

And finally to travel around the world
On my *bike to trod the unbeaten, forgotten roads
From Asia to Europe to Africa to America
And who knows, maybe the forever snowy Arctic and Antartica.

There never seems to be an ending
to all the things that I wanna do
and thinking about it makes me smile
though I know it's gonna take me awhile
I know I have all the time to make it come true...

*in my case - bicycle- I dont have a motorbike licence :)

yep... you guessed it.. bored at work :p

Hi Jonie,

I'm a friend of Kevin Tan, who occasionally mentions you as his friend who run marathons and participate in tris. I'm also a friend of his who run marathons, but doesn't tri. Just thought I should drop a note to say hi. :)

Ribbit and I have been plagued by injuries this year. It has not been a good year for either of us so races are a lot less. We wanted to do the North Face 100 but then got too injured to attempt it. My next race is Genting Trailblazer and then I do Powerman.

You can do it!

I bought the Awana package for Trailblazer. Did you? I'll be having a free buffet dinner or something.

I'm traveling from Penang to KL alone and then KL to Genting with some friends.

Kevin told me about your partner. He's some ultramarathoner. Even Kevin is a marathoner. So you are surrounded by active people.

Are you running SCSM this year?
