Welcome to der family Pacemakers #13 (Eugene Chan)

Hello everyone. This is indeed a surprise and am honored to be asked to submit a simple write-up about my running journey. Thank you Captain Ronnie See for the opportunity and invitation to Pacemakers Malaysia.


My name is Eugene Chan Chew Jin from Petaling Jaya, Selangor. Currently, I am residing in Klang. I’m 42 years old (2020) and had started taking part in running events since 2012. My main objective was to have a healthy lifestyle and keep in shape as I noticed I was slowly putting on weight. I still recall my running friend from Klang, Dennis Teng and Mr. Lim Tow Suan (KPAC), asking me to join the Brooks Half Marathon 2012 @ Bukit Jalil National Stadium. I did the 10k event in 53 minutes…not a bad start!! That was the beginning of my running journey as I participated in events from time to time. It took a turn for the worse in Aug 2015 when I was rewarded my first podium (Men Open No.9, AXA Hearts in Action Run @ Setia Alam) and an anterior tibial stress fracture on the left leg. It took me about 6 months to recover (no running) and was limited to physiotherapy and subsequently core workouts. It took me another 3 months to be where I was performance wise prior to the injury. Quite frustrating to say the least as was always itching to run, but at least I knew the lay-off was better for the long-term. A few things I learned, one is to replace worn out shoes (1,000-1,200km max mileage), do not over stress the body but instead gradually increase the mileage, and eat the right food with sufficient calcium and supplements.


Throughout 2015 and 2016, my race times was slowly improving. Partly is because I increased my weekly running mileage and kept it consistent (5 runs per week). The other part was also reading a lot of running material and getting lots of advices from more seasoned and elite runner….elites like you! I was elevated when I managed a sub 4 hour in my first FM in SCKLM16….a big highlight for me till this day.

2017 was a breakout of sorts as my times started to improve further. I was running about 200km per month as mileage. For events, I run anything from 5k to HM, but occasionally will do the odd 30k and FM. I even did a 50k at Titi Ultra 2017 where I literally limped home after the 25k mark and finished 8th. Probably my last ultra event ever – scared and painful!!!.

In the 2H 2018, I was “promoted” to Men’s veteran category. Fortunately for me, it made it a little bit easier to get into podiums as the field was smaller and we older guys don’t have to go head to head with the young guns from the Open category.

And for 2019 with an average of 300km+ mileage a month, it has been my busiest year to date with 27 events after removing the 5 that was canceled/postponed. It is also my most successful year for me as I had achieved all my PBs in 5K, 10k, 15k, HM, 25k and 30k. Only bump but inexcusable for me, no sub 4 for KLSCM19 as I screwed up my strategy.

Below is the list of events I took part in 2019.

I’m not sure if I will improve further or not for 2020 and beyond, but one thing I can be certain is that as long as we remember our original objectives (ie. staying healthy n injury free, meeting friends, run happy etc..), it is already a huge achievement. Podiums are just bonuses. The greatest competitor in the competition is oneself. If you have given your best, that’s all that matters. There is no short-cuts in running, or in life for that matter….we just have to keep giving our best and keep staying true.
See you guys in soon and keep those advices coming!!!!
