My goal after watching this event (Ironman 70.3) Bintan:

Learning Swimming
I will buy some tools to help me learn how to swimming by myself. So I will not afraid again when trying new adventure as diving. Swimming is also nice sport in the pool and I also will get slim either because I will do my routine exercises

Running is cheaper sport

Who need a lot of money to do this exercises? Running is cheaper sport to do every day. But I am to lazy do this exercises. Based on watch Ironman, I am thinking to try regularly running step by step. Health is very important to life. So keep body health, mind always get positive line.
