I am planning to run for a long time as long my health and time permits.
One of the main concerns for runners (and parents...yes...my parents still care...hehehe) is our safety.
I just read Ilyana's blog about RoadID bracelet with the information on it.
So I have decided and bought myself a RoadID tag.
You can have a look of the product at http://www.roadid.com/
Here how my RoadID will look like. Look forward for the parcel to arrive home soon

I just started to learn how to swim at the tender age of 34 (LOL!). So, no, I am not doing the triathtlon event by myself at this point. There is an event, Port Dickson triathlon which will take place this Sunday in PD (duh!) A friend invited me to join his relay team after his friend has to pull out at the very last minute. I agreed to the invitation immediately, as this will be the chance for me to be part of this triathlon experience.
I will be doing the running discipline, 10km distance. The other two disciplines will be swimming 700m and bicycle ride for 4okm.
Back to my swimming lessons, slowly but surely, I have improved over time and deep down in my heart, I would like to try compete in triathlon in future. I need to be more confident in the water and breathing properly.The bike bit shouldnt be a problem. All I need is to start clocking mileage.
So let's see how it goes this weekend....I will let you know about it....

My name is Irwan and I am a running blob.
It turns out many of my fellow runner friends have their own blog sto share their experience in the running scenes.
Hence, I am becoming one of those people and in the future, I am planning to share some of my experience in the running scene.
I started running in a competition by a coincidence. At the time, in July 2008, my friend Zetty asked me if I want to take part in a 10km run. It was Siemens Run. Without any hesitation, I agreed to the idea and it was a start to my 'addiction' to running.
During the Siemens Run 2008 weekend, I had an eventful Saturday prior to the run. It was so busy, that I went home at 3am after the club closed. I had a couple of hours sleep and by 7am, I was all eyes and bursting with energy raring to go for my first ever running competition
It was kinda blurred experience for me but I did clocked a great timing though. If I was not mistaken I clocked 58mins for the 10km route. Not bad for a rookie huh? But then the aftermath took a big toll to my body. Back then, I ran with no strategy or whatsover. Just plain run, speed as much as I can, walk if I am tired and head to the finishing line. So the following Monday, I was walking in pain, legs were sore, and body was aching all over. That was my first run.
I will write more about my runs in the future. It could be a past or future events, in order making up the loss time. So, stay tune y'all
