Ironman 70.3 Putrajaya Trophies

Thank you to Ironman for these wonderful trophies, two of which will be proudly displayed wherever we set up home and will always remind us of our fabulous time in Malaysia. My husband is already talking about registering to do Ironman 70.3 in Western Australia. It looks like I’ll have to find new team mates though as he wants to do the whole event himself. That’s the thanks I get 😉     Continue reading Ironman 70.3 Putrajaya Trophies

BSN Putrajaya Marathon

Live Great Run Again!

Yes, it’s so long since I last posted, that it’s already time for another Live Great Run. Now to be fair, the 2012 run was in November while this year’s event is on Sep 15th, so it hasn’t been a full year. Just a very large portion of one! I have very fond memories of last year’s race – race memories, quite like recollections on childbirth, always grow fonder with time – and I did blog about it at my Irish Nomad in Malaysia blog if you want to take a peek. Over there, I also wrote up my experience … Continue reading Live Great Run Again!
