Start as you mean to go on

What a brilliant start to 2011. A lazy lie-in to start, followed by a leisurely hour in to pool to wake up. Then a steady 12 miles on the trail, the first 4 in scorching sunshine and the remainder in the sweet respite of monsoon showers. I love running in the rain!

Here’s my racing schedule for 2011 if time and money were no object:
February:
North Face King Of The Hills, Hong Kong (30.5km)
March:

North Face King Of The Hills, Sai Kung (37.4km)
April:
RTI Hong Kong (65km)
Sabah Ultra-Trail Run (60km) – signed up, yay!
May:
The North Face 100km Australia – waitlisted
June:
Sundown Ultra (100km) .. only because it’s local!
August:
Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc (166km) – awaiting confirmation .. this is THE goal for 2011!
September:
Gore-Tex Transalpine Run (300km) .. like I said, if time and money were no object! 🙂
October:
The North Face 100km Singapore
November:
Great North Walk 100s (173km)
Mount Kinabalu International Climbathon (21km)
December:
Coast to Kosciuszko Ultra-marathon (240km) .. this is next on the list, an akubra is way cooler than a finisher’s tee!
If I even manage half this list I’d be delighted. Drop me a note if anyone’s got any races to add or suggest, or if anyone is planning to do any of the above, always good to have some company!

Ah Hwee’s chicken wings are always a great motivator!

  1. Hey – nice list! Hilly HK will be a good training playground to prep for UTMB and TNF100 Australia (for which I have a spare slot, let me know if interested to swap in). I should be doing races #1, 3, 5, 6, 9 as well if all goes according to plan. Toying with this one also http://bit.ly/BDM160. Transalpine should be a blast definitely. C2K is a bit crazy but why not.

    P.S. You should get onto Twitter given the appropriateness of your nick name 🙂
