I first heard of the Genting Trailblazer last year when one of my Bootcamp buddies, Ean Mei participated. Running through a jungle, up and down hills, jump into natural mud baths… HELL YEAH SIGN ME UP!
Unfortunately I wasn’t fit last year (kickstarted my fitness journey only in August 2009) plus it was too late for me to register. Well even if I had the chance to do it then, I wouldn’t have because I’m chicken shit. Not one for tough work, really… my Mom didn’t tell me anything about that when she gave birth to me so I didn’t sign the consent form to go through hardship.
… but this sort of things sounds just right up my alley. So this year, I mustered up the courage to sign up for Genting Trailblazer 2010. Found myself a partner for it even, yay! Say hi to Alex!

Alex is a fellow Bootcamper, though he’s in the Petaling Jaya Alpha (5.45am) platoon and I’m in Petaling Jaya Bravo (7am). I’d warned him that I’d be doing this for the fun and adventure of it, not for any kind of competition. Our own time and pace and all that. He’s okay with it and we’re good to go!
… on Halloween this year lah, not now. So let’s see, we have about 3 months to train for this shindig. Nick suggested jogs and runs through FRIM and Bkt Gasing, while me and Alex’s vision of training has more to do with beer down our bellies. Well then, wish us luck!
