    Kaya ko kaya? Is 2 years enough time to get into ironman condition if I'm coming from scratch? I'm not completely out of shape naman. I'm about 20 pounds overweight and I smoke and drink a lot but I'm still very mobile. (I wanna say athletic but that might be pushing it.:supergrin:)

    Finishing an ironman event is one of my long-time fantasies. That and fighting in the UFC and winning a World Shoot.

    Haaaay. If only we didn't have to work for a living......

    Gusto ko rin sana pakasalan si Jessica Alba but I think the ironman thing is more realistic.

    Yup! 14 of my friends are doing it sa 2009, ang lalakas pa rin uminom and some are still overweight ( pinoproblema kung may bar daw sa Langkawi )
    The biggest challenge is finding the time to train
    swim bike and run for long hours , pagdating mo pa sa bahay wala ka na pakinabang :)
    Plus injuries , w/c is my biggest problem
    But sa 2 years , we can do it slowly but surely or pwede rin magbago isip hehe

    After 2010 , umilag na sakin si Anderson Silva o baka si GSP if I decide to cut weight Naks! Gising!

    just got this today in my email. get a box of kleenex read on and WATCH THE WHOLE video


    A son asked his father, “Dad, will you take part in a marathon with me?” The father who, despite having a heart condition, says 'Yes.'
    They went on to complete the marathon together. Father and son went on to join other marathons, the father always saying 'Yes' to his son's request of going through the race together. One day, the son asked his father, 'Dad, let's join the Ironman together' to which, his father said 'Yes' too.

    For those who don't know, Ironman is the toughest triathlon ever.
    The race encompasses three endurance events of a 2.4 mile (3.86 kilometer) ocean swim, followed by a 112 mile (180.2 kilometer) bike ride, and ending with a 26.2 mile (42.195 kilometer) marathon along the coast of the Big Island .. Father and son went on to complete the race together. View this race at.....

    Kilala mo si Andy Aguila? Cool bike niya - meron sticker ng logo for every Ironman na sinali niyan sa may top tube niya. masasabi ko madami dami rin na sticker yon :)

    Kaya mo yan sa 2010 Malaysia!!!! You have more than a year to train. Sabi nga ng kaibigan ko puwede na 6mos basta starting fit ka na. Game na sali ka na kung hindi pa atras ng paatras lang yan. Just go do it!!
