DER PACEMAKERS #45

SAIFUL AZRI
Born : August 17 1982, Kedah


My sporting career began in primary school, where my family supported my competitive urges from the beginning. I displayed a gift early on when I won the high jump in School Sports Day at 10 years old. Then I start to represent for my school in high jump and long jump until I went to secondary school I turn to a middle distance running. At that stage I participate in 800m, 1500m and 3000m.

Suddenly, I stop running when I was in form 4 when i enjoy playing football, volleyball, taekwondo and others sport at that time. Then when I was in final year at university I realize that I miss something I love when I was a child. Regret !..so, I start jogging…running….took part in competitions. My first competition are Big Walk 2003, I finished it without medal.

When I start working as a quantity surveyor in Damansara, I took serious in running to get back my performance. My time slowly improved and I started to collect medal from each competition. haha
For me running can detain for rest of our life. It can live as individual or in-group and for the most importances are we can improve our performance and life style.

My first marathon arrived in September 2006, when i set a record at 4:31:59. At a meet in Singapore in December 2006, i broke my marathon record (4:31:59) and set a new one at 4:09:49. Marathon show me a lot of experience. We must keep patient and focus in our mind.

I am Pacemaker 45. Thanks to the entire team of runners and supporters in Penang Island Relay 2006. This is my first time with this team and I proud to be a pacemaker and its motivate me to train hard next time.

Personally, I can be very talkative and sumtimes can be shy. I really love running. I’m a happy go lucky person, i think.hahaha Next year I will be a full time student in UPM taking MSc Project Management. Wish me of success…
