Hits and misses

And finally I get down to writing my long overdue post on my Ironman Langkawi experience. I have been wanting to write this for a long time and as I wanted to share my DNF (did not finish) experience with the same energy and enthusiasm as I have shared my numerous successes here in the past.

As with life and more so in today's social media age, most of us only share our successes and positives in our lives, especially wrt professional pursuits and sports. But this is far from the real picture, with successes also failure, and we have a lot more to learn from our failures than successes.

I had a truly amazing one week in the tropical paradise of Langkawi, preparing and participating in my first Iornman Triathlon on September 27, 2014. Details of the race available on Ironman Langkawi 2014 Event schedule. I might not be a finisher but the experience I gained from attending this truly world class event and the friends I made there will be with me for a long long time. 

I am really greatful to my sponsors who made this experience possible. My long term sponsors Puma (www.pumashop.in) and Sportizen (www.sportizen.com) and my event sponsors Malaysia Tourism (http://www.tourism.gov.my/en/in and Giant Cycles (http://www.starkennbikes.com). and a very special thanks to my hosts at Langkawi - Resort World Langkawi (http://www.rwlangkawi.com) for their wonderful hospitality.

I will be sharing my learnings and sights from Ironman Langkawi in the next post.
