der pacemakers Pasar Malam stall?


So good to see ppl complain this and that, or else we got nothing to shout about. Nothing is perfect in this world. I oso like to complain, but after tomoro I forgot wat I hv complain. So hope u guys oso der same thing lah. Don't hv to take thing so serious want. Work is STRESS!! So try to gila-gila abit lah ok?

******************************************
from Chlow,

Hi, i don't think anyone knows me and i would like to tell you guys i enjoy reading this website especially information about running lah (but not the 'war' that is going on) I also noticed there is two groups out there that don't see eye to eye. There is a little truth on what is said on both side.

I am 45 years old, a slow runner normally take part in 10km races. Just a ordinary slow runner. I appreciate that i got my first medal in the mizuno wave run recently not because i was good but everyone got a medal. Been taking part in runs the past 1 year. Had some bad experience in the Mizuno wave run.

First of all i was not given a medal when i cross thew finishing line. Was just given a paper with my position. Only when i look and see everyone getting a medal did i go back and ask how come i was not given one when i finished earlier then them that i got mine.

Later i went to collect my drink and breakfast. I did not eat my packet of meehoon. I later gave it to a lady collecting and clearing the rubbish. She immediately sat down to eat the packet of meehoon, to my horror it was a packet already eaten with the leftover inside. She thought i was playing tricks on her and started shouting at me. It was embarassing. I am telling you guys this is because i don't let this bad experience cloud my enjoyable run and i thank you guys for giving me and opportunity to have an opportunity to run and enjoy myself.

Even if there are no medals i would still enjoy myself. I am not on any side and i hope nobody start 'attacking' me after this. I could have easily 'curse' the organiser for that bad experience but at the end of the day i ask myself what is my motive in going for the run. If we reflect a little there is some truth in both sides.

Any suggestion to help me to run and complete a dream 21km run. Please don't think that i am on either side. Hope everyone can take the ctiticism in a positive outlook.

Hi Chlow,

May be you can come and join the Pacesetter on every Sunday at Bukit Aman car park at 6.30 a.m. I think there are slower group as well. Then, on weekday, I suggest Tuesday and Thursday, go for 5-8 km run. Run slowly. May be it is tough at the beginning, but, after train for few months, your stamina should improve. Must have enough rest for your legs between the training.

Hi Wan Lin,

Thanks for the suggestion and the invitation to join the pacesetters. I thought of joining the pacesetter on many occasions but looking at the members run i don't think i am good enough to join them. Thanks anyway for the information. I have been increasing my mileage recently in my runs, hopefully one day gather enough guts to run in the 21km.
