Ironman Langkawi 27-Feb-2010

This 27-Feb, brace yourself for the Langkawi Ironman, a competition reserved for the superhuman species. There will be 729 competitors from 49 countries pursuing for glory and the coveted prize money totaling USD$50,000. To finish the competition is a challenge itself, having to swim 3.8km, cycle 180km and run a full 42km marathon. I really can't understand how these people could do it. I guess training, training and endless training...
