He's Der_Man!

I certainly don't mean for this posting to read like a tribute to PM1 mainly because tributes are usually written for folks past their prime, retiring, or dying! But for achieving his feat, he certainly warrants some mentioning. Many of us rely on him for race information, registration, source of funny race reports and running tips. He abstains from pork and cuttlefish, yet with his dedication to his own training, devotion to his ex-girlfriend-turned-wife and responsibilities to his in-laws, he still finds energy week in week out to race well.

Just this recent Sunday, he celebrated the collection of his 100th medal and I'm sure that I speak on behalf of the rest of us who frequent this blog, that we celebrated with him. The 100th medal was made all the more sweet since it came at the end of 8 weekends of racing. Who is he? He's Der_Pacemaker # 1, Ronnie See. We wish him the best and may he continue to plunder the races and yet ensuring that there are sufficient medals left for the rest of us mortals!

Agreed with Jamie; It is never be easy to win the total of 100 medals. Surely it took a lot of hard-run & strong-heart to reach the stage.

Congratulations! Well done...

By the way, PM1, it is not an end yet, it is just a begining of winning another 100 medals. Good luck!

See u in the near-future races.

Congrats to u PM1!
Not only did u win 100 medals but
u have won many friends too.
I know u as friendly, honest, humble, funny and unselfish.
In the well organized PAR, everybody got a medal except u!
U sacrificed your time, effort and medal to organize the run.
This shows a lot about u.
U welcome all runners.
It don't matter if they are fast or slow.
U treat me as human and not by how slow I run.
U talk to me like another human and not as a fast
runner talking to a slow runner.
U are my role model and my hero.

To PM1,

My heartiest congratulation to you on winning the 100th medal. You definitely deserve it, after all the hard work and training. Anyway, my name is Vilkaala. I have been surfing your blog to find out about all the up-coming races, which otherwise I would have missed. Thank you very much on that. It is very interesting to read about the pre and post races write-ups which you and the other PM members religiously update from time to time. Keep up the good work. In fact, I also go through all the other PM members' blogs as well. Reading your blogs keep my running spirit alive. Thanks again.

Regards,
A.Vilkaala
