Ironman_logo“Anything is Possible”, the moniker, mantra or tagline for the ironman brand. call it brilliant marketing or what not, it is indeed this spirit of perseverance that keeps regular people like us (less pro triathletes) coming back for more each time. Either trying to out do their personal best timings or to arrive a the ultimate prize – Kona, Hawaii. Well, whatever it is, i will try to be a Kona one day to say aloha to the infamous long course triathlon. Hopefully as an ironman than a spectator.

One of the event i always wanted to do and have done it. Was targeting 3.3hr and was 20min away. if the blisters did not turn up on the 7km point, i think 3.5hr is definitely doable. one lesson learned. also this is a first race with my latest supporter – my son, Ayden. He is comfortably wrapped up in the carrier.

North Face 25km

Thanks to some encouragement from a fellow colleague, I finally signed up for the north face run. Given my worse than ever fitness now I will begin with the 25km category. I will take this event more seriously in terms of my training towards event day.

The race day is 13 Oct so I have a good 4 months to get cracking. Based on condition I feel 4hrs will be fairly comfortable. Sub 3.5hrs will be my training target putting me at 8.4min/km. Bonus will be 3hrs or 7min/km. If I can do this then I will try out for 50km next year.

Let’s move along one step at a time. I like to do a full marathon again and then a half ironman again. Then ultimately move on to a full ironman and north face 100km.

another amazing ingredient that is so versatile and tasty at the same time. i was thinking to take a group shot with a few eggs together. natural lighting is sometimes the best to illuminate simple ingredients such as eggs. i tried a few angles to capture the effects of light. i also did a few shots to show a york out of its shells.

basic ingredients are always overlooked so i like to put them on center stage this time. i like garlic and lots of them in my pasta and food in general. tried to bring out the simple lines and textures and i found it suitable to be done up in black & white to.

this is quite a challenging shot as the subject is very plain and simple. so i decided to keep the set up simple with only a contrasting bowl. i used natural light to bring out the tenderness and healthy glow.
