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 2w

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 2w
  •   khaiyatab Great 🏻🏻 2w
  •   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. 2w

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 3w

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

janshim Tutu, our red-eared #terrapin, turned 5 (in human years) last month and some time in that month he learned to knock on the door whenever he wanted to go outside to the balcony (or come back inside, for that matter). He also lets us know when he wants to be in the tank to pee and poop. He spends most of his time out of the tank and sleeps in our bedroom, on the floor in a corner he's taken a liking to. Most of all, he's active and interactive when you can spare a moment to play with him. #turtle #Brunei #pets

janshim Late morning soaring temps made it nearly impossible to get a decent run without being bogged down by stifling heat. I think I've hit the wall having run every single day of this week to a total of 44.2 km and burning 3,000 calories in 7 hours of workout. May squeeze in an easy hike with my wife tomorrow morning before taking the weekend off. #Brunei #trailrunning #running #UltimateDirection #FinishStrong #fitness #hydration #youvstheyear 4w
