I first took up triathlon as cross trainings and I also need some distractions from running when I plateaued. Then I realized this is what I really want. I fell in love with the sport and like every triathletes I too want to set my feet on the Big Island for Ironman World Championship someday (maybe by winning my AG when I am 70)
Boston Marathon Qualifying time
Below is the qualifying time for Boston Marathon. For 2014 race, the qualifying window is open from 22 September 2012 till the registration date (TBD), around September 2013.
Looks like my chance to qualify for 2014 race are slim to nil. I am nowhere near the 3:10:00 mark yet. It may take me another year or so to get there (with luck). So realistically I would try to qualify for the 2015 or 2016 editions. In the mean time I would like to wish all the Malaysian runners who made it to the Boston Marathon 2013 the best of luck.

Ironman Malaysia 2017 Race Report By Mohd Syafei Bin Ahmad
Intro It took me almost two weeks to finally sit and write this
race report. I still feel the highs from the race and can’t move on from all the
excitement I had in Langkawi two weeks ago. Ironman Malaysia is like an unofficial
national championship for Malaysian triathletes. Almost everyone I know from
the local Tri community descended on the island to battle it out for the
bragging rights to finish an Ironman or finishing among the top Malaysian
finishers on home soil. I would say everyone must be proud to earn their
Ironman title in Langkawi. It
is among the toughest Iron distance courses in the world for crying out
loud. I personally took this race very seriously. My goals were to PB, complete
the race in less than 12 hours and finish among the top 20 Malaysian. Going
into this race I secretly marked few Malaysian triathletes I know, rename them
as the world’s top athletes and pretended that we are racing in Kailua-Kona.
Aku dilahirkan di Muar (Muo kata orang Muar) dan dibesarkan di Tangkak. Walaupun bahasa melayu diambil daripada bahasa Johor/Riau, tetapi orang-orang Muar dan Tangkak mempunyai gaya bahasa yang sedikit berbeza apabila bertutur. Arwah Tok Tan aku misalnya, mempunyai gaya loghat yang 'distinctively Tangkak'. Banyak perkataan-perkataan yang biasa dituturkan masyarakat Muar dan Tangkak yang aku telah lupa. Jadi sebagai tribute untuk Arwah Tok Tan dan orang-orang Muar / Tangkak, aku akan cuba untuk menyenaraikan sebanyak mungkin perkataan dalam loghat Muar / Tangkak apabila aku teringat.
Ampar (sebutan Am-po) = Hamparan, permaidani Anu = Si folan = Dia ke tangkak dengan si anu tu, anak Noh Itik. Basan = pakaian basahan , pakaian harian Berlengas = Badan melekit Bersendor = Berdengkur Berteromba (sebut beteghombe) = Bermain-main, berlari-lari dan bersuka ria (kebiasaan oleh anak-anak kecil dalam rumah), Centong = Senduk Endut = kekasih - Kau dah ada endut Syam?

Last week, almost everyone in Malaysia's triathlon community converged in Langkawi to battle it out for the coveted bragging rights of becoming among the best Malaysian finishers. Mohd Amran, the top Malaysian finisher in 2016 was not competing this year following a bike accident few months ago and it then a straight forward battle between Rupert Chen and Shahrom Abdullah who made a come back after a long hiatus. Few notable triathletes were also missing in the top 20 this year. Many people suffered on the run after clocking faster time on the bike. Maybe because it was 'cooler' this year and most people took the risk to ride harder. Overall it was still a good race. Well done everyone and see you again in 2018.
