Yikes! Is this it? The competition here in Thailand – making it’s fire ever inaugural appearance, is here!
Ahhhh….the feeling of going through mud and using a ton of upper body strength is starting to come. The hyperventilation and the entire ride (1.5 hours) to the site of the monster.
Who am I kidding? I’m not afraid. Pfft….7-8km is no big deal compared to the monstrosity of a beast in Kuala Lumpur (was suppose to be 13km but was 17km).
Nonetheless, doing this with friends should make it a very intriguing race. I don’t know how many different countries will be there, but it’s looking like folks from Aussie, all the way up to Kazakhstan, will be joining the stupendous fun – or maybe lack thereof.
This keeps me away from a Saturday, a shopping plaza on Saturday that houses the most unbelievable amount of ignorance on the face of planet Earth. Wait, wait, wait…..no pity parties.
I’m so unbelievably grateful being able to do this….this meaning travel 3-4 times a year for vacation and travel for competitions, too. The leniency and flexibility of my present investment job (I call it an investment job because I invest my time into it) helps me do this. A lot of my friends, especially in America, aren’t given an opportunity to do anything because of ridiculous work situations whereas if they leave, the boss tells them not to come back.
I’m truly grateful, on every inch of my being, for being able to enjoy life, the planet, and do what I love day in and day out because a lot of people can’t.
With that being said, there’s going to be a hell of a blog write up, pictures, and a few other things coming 24 hours from now (at the conclusion of the race). When the blog goes up, know that I will be engaged in a 2-hour spa & massage to restore my body.
If anyone has any questions about dieting, traveling, or anything else…please let me know!
This is Arsenio….over and out.
