Penang is about 80km around as circumnavigated on foot, and this year we Tim and I joined a team of 10 others to race around as fast as possible.  IMG_1838

Tim started us off in the stuffy pre-dawn time of 5am, and our team finished in second place right around 11am. Here’s a photo of an early-morning roadside handoff – flying!


I ran tenth, kicking off at 9:30am, through the glaring tourist town of Batu Ferringhi and along the coastline to the floating mosque.  By the time I finished I could think of nothing but refueling (well, fueling. My nutrition needed help this race!).  The kids and I hightailed it to a hawker, where noodle soup & teh ice replaced all the salt I needed.
