janshim On the 3rd day of #ChineseNewYear, while everyone was still recovering from three days of food coma (including reunion dinner), three #trail monkeys assembled at #BukitShahbandar as early as 6.30am for a #halfmarathon 23km trail run. We began the run covering the 6+ km 14 hills route before continuing on at the 16km McFarm-Agro-Empire to finish back at #Shahbandar!

janshim Like a title from one of Ian Fleming's best novels, I received a very surprising postcard ... from Russia, with love!

I received about half a dozen postcards in Q4 of 2015 but this one from #Russia marks the first in 2016 nicely adding to my growing collection of postcards from around the world. Thank you very much to everyone who has sent them! ‪#‎ProjectPostcard

janshim You know you're a #trailrunner when ... it takes you half a day to carefully pack for your next #run compared to just an hour to pick out your clothes for #chinesenewyear

janshim #10k run on the last day of the #YearoftheGoat. 4k running against gutsy headwind this morning with #Compressport visor in reverse to keep it from being lifted off with the returning 4k delightfully assisted by tailwind adding another 2k on road for a double digit finish.

janshim Beautiful #sunny morning for a short #recoveryrun at #TamanRekreasiSungaiLiang #brunei. A twenty minutes drive from #Seria to get away from the smoke from nearby forest fires beats sitting in front of the PC at home. .

janshim Another cancelled beach run after waking up to a smoke-filled morning. So once again I headed back to #SungaiLiang and ran the same route as I did yesterday except today I took a longer 5km detour from the back of forest to #BruneiMethanolCompany traffic light before finishing the 2.5km straight back to Wong Ah Lian #kopitiam — finishing the run at 11km which includes several knee busting elevations at Bukit Pak Natu.

janshim Short 3km #run in the Sungai Liang #forest #trail this morning before breakfast. Would have done #5km if not for the approaching smoke as we made our way down to the village farm so we turned back into the forest and cut the morning short. .

janshim If you're experiencing foot problems with your #running #shoes there's probably a #lacing technique here that can take care of that. Let me know if you have found a technique that made a difference for you. #sharingIsCaring #RunWithoutPain #runhappy

janshim After covering over 530km I'm looking to replace my @NewBalance MT610v3 #trailrunning #shoes to prepare for June's 30km Borneo Ultra Trail Marathon #BUTM2016. I wanted the #NewBalance Vaze Summit but that's only due out in April. Meanwhile I've picked up a pair of @Brooksrunning #Cascadia 11 at @TriUltra that came highly recommended by trail buddies @rizanlatif and @junaidi_john. Whether these shoes are right for me or not, only time will tell.

janshim I went to BSB this morning originally for one purpose and that was to check out the newly arrived @brooksrunning #cascadia 11 at @TriUltra. Then I thought, since I'm going to be there why not drop by Bukit Shahbandar for a 14 hills hike. And then when I got there, the trails were empty and immediately saw an opportunity for a clean run vs Sunday's crowd. Long story short, I ran really fast and ended up besting Sunday's time by 3+ minutes — setting a new #personalbest of 01:25! What a morning! #running #trailrunning #runhappy #mizuno #mizunorunning #ultimatedirection #finishstrong #youvstheyear 3w

janshim Today is a special kind of #Sunday. Father and daughter on opposite end of the country for the same thing — #running. Jewel ran the #LarianAmal #5km race in KB and finished 2nd place while I was in BSB running my first Bukit #Shahbandar Brunei 14 hills trail for the year, also first ever #solo attempt and set a new #personalrecord taking 01:29 vs 01:47 in 2015 to complete the extended trail. I think we both accomplished something pretty awesome today! #trailrunning #happyrunning #brunei #personalbest #gofast #compressport #youvstheyear 3w
  •   khaiyatab Great 🏻🏻 3w
  •   janshim @khaiyatab Thanks! Yesterday's weather was unusually perfect -- cool and breezy or perhaps the Indomie and scrambled egg combo gave me a boost -- either way it was one of those 'gun the hills' mood. 3w

janshim Earned my first @UnderArmour#‎YouVSYear‬ 100km badge this morning. The beach was very windy today and while that meant a cool run on an otherwise hot day, I started with a headwind from the Billionth Barrel to SCOT only to enjoy a tailwind on the return run. #running #Compressport #ultron @mountainhardwear #mountainhardwear arm sleeves 4w

janshim I got up this morning thinking I could finally light up my first @UnderArmor#‎youvsyear 100km badge but as things turned out I finished 1km short so that'll have to wait till the next run. #running #beach #Brunei #udhydrates #ultimatedirection @Buff_usa #compressport #underarmor
