I want to do Challenge Taiwan half.
I think it’s become a tradition for me to set down in writing at least one thing I would like to do, whether it’s this year or in a few years’ time. I once wrote about the Osaka Marathon, and last year I wrote about training at Thanyapura. One is very near to becoming reality, while the other was fulfilled last year and may even become a recurring thing!
(Disclaimer: I’ve promised myself I won’t do another ironman-distance race unless either Challenge or Ironman finally put one up in the Philippines. Organizers, what do you say?)
So yes, I’ve had my eye on Challenge Taiwan for a while. Up until last year it hosted both a half and a full distance triathlon on the same weekend, and was the first Challenge Family event in Asia. Reading about Challenge Taiwan on Coach Ani’s blog gave me a first glimpse into what a Challenge Family event would be like. Now that I’ve done a few, I can say I love the warm, welcoming experience Challenge offers, and I’d love to do more of their races!
So, what is Challenge Taiwan like? (more…)
