What a difference less than 3 months makes

(Photos courtesy of Malakoff and Tey)

What a difference less than three months makes. Here's a photo of a rather rotund (82.5kg), unhappy looking, struggler of a runner (sans MOJO) at the Malakoff 12k on the 19th of December 2010 and another taken on Sunday 13th March 2011 at the Bareno Bukit Jalil Half Marathon (72kg).

Both are near the end of the race and the latter one you can see not only am I enjoying myself but I'm oozing MOJO. I ran another 8km on top of the race too just for good measure.

(Check out the legs on both pictures - hahahaha)

Ahhhhhh! Life is good again.

WOW. To be honest, this is a true inspiration to me right now. Going through some crap injury wise and with that goes my weight.

Very happy you found your mojo and hit your groove man. I have nothing but high hopes that I will finally hit my groove again too!

Keep up the good work man!

M, Really sorry to hear about your injury woes, losing my MOJO was something I could control (that was part of the funk though) but injury is totally out of your control and really sucks. Take it easy buddy and try to identify what caused it so that you can avoid it in the future.

I'm sure you'll be back on course in no time but don't do a Bryan and try to rush it. Good luck buddy, looking forward to seeing your "then and now" posts.

B, thanks. And yes you're right I did pile it on but I was in a bad place while you were lapping it up in Kona, I was a total twazzock but I'm back and ready for the hunt.
