I am fat. I am old. I run. A lot. Join me on my journey to discover my true potential one stride at a time and hopefully you too can learn from my mistakes and teach me a thing or two along the way...

Starlight Ultra 2014
Run 84km in Penang
My goodness, there will be not one, but TWO ultra marathons in Penang this year. First announced was the Penang Ultra 100. Now we learn that there will be another ultra run. While the run in September looks more hardcore thanks to the limited number of participants, and shorter cut-off time and terrain, the Starlight Ultra has runs that caters to the needs of various runners. So those who are not ready for the 84km solo can join the 84km relay or sign up for the 21km and 7km runs. The cut off times are kinder: 84km solo/relay is 16 hours. That's an hour more than the Penang Ultra's 84km run. For a slower runner like me that becomes so very tempting. Those who want to learn more about the Starlight Ultra can click here. Those who want to compare it to the Penang Ultra 100 can click here to lead to their web page. The registration for Starlight Ultra has been delayed till 31st January 2014. The colours for the running tops and finisher t-shirts have also changed, all for the better if you ask me.
