The Desaru 113 triathlon happened earlier this year (June) than it did last year (August), so it definitely doesn’t feel like enough time has passed since we last bundled ourselves into a car and drove many hours down to this little town called Bandar Penawar in Johor.

Aunt Flow really isn’t that nasty.

This one’s for the ladies – especially those of you who stop exercising when it is that time of the month.
