Tunnel of Red!
First of all, I would like to thanks to all diehard Pacemakers gang for wearing der Pm's official vest. Really appreciate it, n those who didnt wear it. Prepare for heavy penalty [15 ranking pts will deduce from ur ranking pts system]. For 1st timer in der race, will give a second chance.

My Race Report!
Thanks god I survive this battle, I was unfit n down wit flu, fever & cough for der whole wks after Circuit Run, due to overheat at that race [insert need more vitamin C here]. Der race flagoff at 7.38am, ran at fast pace at der begining to avoid der thick crowed. After 2km started to slow down liao, coz move into der SMART tunnel liao n der way is clear n eazy to run oredi, coz I dont want to get pensan inside der tunnel. After 1km of running inside der tunnel, starting to feel very hard on my breathe n sumore so humid [insert sweat like waterfall here]. Lucky I hv Chen Pong Pong as a pacer, else would be damn boring like hell [insert need more oxigen here].

A bit relief after coming out of der humid tunnel to make a u-turn, surprisingly Azwar & Vincent Wong was ahead of me. While der back of me oso coming tight from behind are Chen, Kenny, Loco Lai, Shine & Saiful [insert cinya kan cheong here].

Going into humid n boring tunnel again, this time I more prepare liao. Make sure I stay at my own pace, dont care about der heat, juz breathe nicely will do. I hv Vincent Wong as my motivation, keep on my pace wit Vincent n make sure dont let go. Lucky der water station ease my pain, I was so damn thirsty n tired liao. Grab 2 cup to refresh myself n ready to pia again. And yes I manage to overtake Vincent b4 out of der tunnel, n I turn to turbo gear to overtake as many runners as I can. B4 enter to finishing line, I heard a giant footstep coming from behind. And it getting closer n closer, oh my god!! It was Kenny Tan, base on my experience. Kenny Tan hv a very strong finish, he will sprint like mad dog no matter wat it take. Wit 90m to go, I pia everything out, including all my Tham n Phee come out. Der feeling is like someone barking behind [insert bark! bark! here] no matter how, I manage to finish ahead of him at 0.01sec nia, phew! wat a close call, almost kena bite by this mad dog. hahaha...

brought 2u by Pm1

Organizer, VIPs and medal sucks. The medal is one of those generic ones anyone can buy from outside and with a sticker pasted on. No creativity at all! The Pacemaker Run medal is much better!
