My crazy friends and I did it: “We are Ironman”

In my last post, I mentioned that I was going for the Ironman race with a group of crazy friends. 4th December 2011 marks the day where we are all Ironman.

Darrell: let me paddle harder now! Riding this tail wind rocks.

Darrell Zhang – You are an Ironman!

The question now is “Will you do it again?”

Changjie: Finally! It's been the longest day in my life!

Yeo Changjie – You are an Ironman!

The question now is “How do you like the taste of Powergel now”

Zhaohui: I have to look cool! ***** is going to see me later!

Ow Zhaohui – You are an Ironman!

The question now is “We all race for a reason, What’s your???”

Mingyang: Each steps take me closer to the finishing line.

Low Mingyang – You are an Ironman!

The question now is “Have you sign up for 2013 Ironman New Zealand?”

Bryan: The head wind is so strong, just like starting up full of obstacles! But moving forward is the only option!

Lee Tuck Sing – You are an Ironman!

The question now is “Have you gotten your startup fund yet?”

I certainly had a great time at 2011 SunSmart Ironman Western Australia, swim course was sweet. I could even see the seabed as we were heading out to the jetty. Bike course – I did have problems with the headwind, but my determinations keep me going. Furthermore, I just tell myself that I will get to enjoy the tailwind when I heading back. Run course was flat, easy running but the heat and the houseflies were a bit of a challenge.

I completed the race at 14:04:46, was it within my target? according to my New Year Resolutions set in 2011 – I targeted less than 14hours. But did I enjoy the race?, Definitely YES!. The support from friends and especially these crazy friends who raced with me.

I mentioned everyone does something for a reason. What’s yours. Share you experience here in the comments what prompts you to do an Ironman!
