It's been quite sometime since this was updated. And i realised it was 2 years ago! So i decided to give this space of mine a little 'spring cleaning' i guess.
There are so many races and invitations going on and I couldn't decide which one to choose from as they are all awesome!
But nevertheless, there is only one thing in my mind that I have narrowed my vision to. That is to be in the Himalayan Regions come this May 2016 for a journey worth exploring once in my lifetime. Of course, its the Tenzing Hilary Everest Marathon, the World's highest trail running event.
After much deliberating, I decided to go on with my plans to run the marathon and not ascend much higher altitude to the peaks as I might risk out my stump.
Its actually real hard to find someone who actually understands my disability condition. But finally, thank God, I managed to find someone who understands and accepts my condition as a single legged amputee runner.
After getting several advices from my Doctor, family and close friends, today I would like to announce that someone who will be with me throughout this journey, the one who will be assisting me during belaying, rope techniques, upcoming mountaineering trainings, and the expedition of the year, Tenzing Hillary Everest Marathon.
After discussing with both families, a true brother i've known, brother Azlan Ashad, will be alongside me in this adventurous journey and assisting my needs during the mountain race. I'm glad he has attained some knowledge from attending courses such as first aid, exercise and nutrition and also mountain climbing. He will also be attending and learn some techniques on prosthetic tools at Tan Tock Seng Hospital.
He will also be climbing various mountains in Malaysia as part of training preparation for the expedition.
We will be selling SBR products such as new design tee shirts, postcard, bookmark, posters and other products to raise more money for this expedition trip. He is the head of the designing and planning process for our team. If you are interested to know more about him, details can be found in his Facebook profile.
For now, much rigorous trainings are needed to condition ourselves before moving on to higher levels so that we have a steady rate of progression in terms of health and performance as we do not want serious injuries or mishaps to happen prior to expedition period.
