My fellow soon to be Comradier, Chee Kong return home (and left) recently from South Africa for the Chinese New Year holidays. What he brought back along was knowledge, and a whole bunch of them. Books regarding running and especially on the history and inspiration of the Comrades Marathon were the main highlight and it will sure keep me inspired and motivated as I await and prepare for race day in June 2012.
Not only the above, he also brought back biltong, a type of dried meat considered to be a delicacy over at South Africa. I think the one he brought back is buffalo meat. It's actually a pretty healthy meal but it just taste horrible! Its basically aired raw meat which are made up of lean protein. Imagine meat jerky but in a horrible stinky taste. Sorry, but I just can't take the smell!
Overall during Chee Kong' short holiday back here, we had a few short but good get together with some other friends discussing about running, running and more running. We even tried to "poison" a few friends to join us for 2013's edition of the Comrades Marathon which happens to be the "Up" race.
Now the only problem is how am I going to finish all the books when I have hardly any time for myself? Hmmm...
