MUDS is back.
A few years back, when I was in Uni, I use to participate in a few sporting activities, either recreationally or internationally (rowing, that is). I would love to do triathlons, but the sheer knowledge that I cannot swim put that aspiration on hold.
So as an alternative, I started to do duathlons. Its basically triathlons without swimming, with two running leg and a bike leg in between. Malakoff used to organise these series either as an open series or university ones, but it was scaled down in the recent years to only the Powerman series (which I'm not fit enough to be in).
So when I open my email today and there are announcement that Malakoff is starting its duathlon series (albeit a university ones), the heart started pumping again. And as it also open for public, its time to bring out The Bike again, and clean all the cobwebs. This year MUDS is to be held at The National Uni on the 19th, my alma mater the week after and National Defence Uni the following weekend. And maybe continued till Powerman?
So Coach, feel like riding a duathlon again? Jom la. Hmm, just where do I put my helmet?
