This is how much or rather how far I like my @Inov_8 Terraclaw 250 trail shoes. As at today 16th March 2017, the red pair that I wore at #BUTM2016 30K has since clocked 748 kms while the blue pair that I wore at #BUTM2017 30K has clocked just slightly over 100 kms.

How I ended wearing the two pairs of Terraclaw 250 a year apart was purely coincidental as a result of new shoes (also Inov-8) I had ordered from the UK did not arrive in time.

The red pair which by the way still isn't retired gets used a lot because I kept putting off wearing the blue pair which only made its debut at BUTM 2017.

From #Starbucks Imago to Starbucks at Kota Kinabalu International Airport where we took our one and only family photo with our #BUTM2017 Finisher medals. What an incredible weekend (see my extra wide grin) it had been for us. This opportunity was made possible because Jamie and Jewel just happened to be on their GCE O and A Level holidays so they had close to 3 solid months to train and prepare for race day.

Bumped into these amazing #Bruneian ultra runners while killing time (still hours away from flight home) at #Starbucks Imago. Our paths have crossed more than once now first time at #BUTM2016 then #BBNTC2016 followed by #TMBT2016 . Like running, you don't stop, you just rest in between strides!

Towards the last leg of the race, we found ourselves traversing through a fair bit of forest trails and river crossings and while my watch had already hit the 30km mark, it didn't seem as though we would reach the finish line anytime soon.

Kept pushing ahead (Jewel was already struggling with pain from her left plantar fascia tendon) until about a kilometer later before murmurs could be heard in the distance. As the noises got closer, it didn't take long before a very long hanging bridge and the finisher line banner came in sight!

I've completed several trail races with the Garmin Fenix3 HR including #BUTM2016 30K #TMBT2016 50K and it was only recently that I used the navigation feature during #BUTM2017 . I imported the official course map and the Fenix3 HR churned out useful real-time data throughout the course of my 30K race.

There's also of course a separate data screen that shows the complete course map with a navigation arrowhead and real-time notification to indicate if you're 'On Course' or 'Off Course'

Some 8 hours and 30 km later, we're on the last hanging bridge crossing to the finish line — with the upbeat music playing across the river to the voice of the MC cheering us on! This was the finish I didn't have last year at Tamparuli venue due to heavy rain.

Here's something that just don't make sense. At the last #BUTM2017 Water Station for us, the 25km mark for 30K runners (33km mark for 50K runners) on a hot afternoon, the last thing you expect when you walk through the door was hot tea, hot coffee and even the instant noodles were hot to the touch.

But because cup noodles are a much talked about trail running experience, we decided to give it a go anyway, you know, for the experience! The profused sweating that followed was quite another experience too 😅

A quarter past five hours into the race, we reached the 20km mark where we stopped to take in the beautiful surrounding, challenging as it may be hiking up the knee busting 520m hill. 300m of elevation and 10km to go before we crossed the finish line in 08:15:24 #BUTM2017

Quick family photo at #BUTM2017 registration hall before Jewel and I left for the 30K starting line while mother and son team stayed back for their flag-off an hour later. Being their first trail marathon participation and my first with the family, it was all very exciting.

On-board the bus at 4am at Hotel Megah D'Aru bound for #BUTM2017 race venue Kiulu River. When my wife got up and walked to the front of the bus for this photo, I didn't think it would turn out good — taken at that hour when it was still dark and all. As it turns out, photo was predictably grainy but subjects were in focus and that alone gave me plenty to work on for this final piece.

12K and 30K bibs, official race tees, Garmin GPS watches and Racematix timing chip wrist bands — momentos from our first family participation at the Borneo Ultra Trail Marathon 2017 on 18th February.

Last hills workout before crazy #BBTC2017 30K and 50K weekend. Not entirely sure if I've fully recovered from #BUTM2017 30K 1500m elevation run to handle another 50K distance with 1100m elevation. But I'll give it my best and look forward to meeting everyone on race day!
