Welcome to der Family : PACEMAKERS #48

I love running because it is one of the most popular sports and exercise to improve health and fitness. Running is also one of the best exercises we can commit to if we want to manage weight or keep in shape.

I started running seriously in 2005 at the age of 41 years old. I have participated my first 10km (Power Run) in July 2005 with the timing of 58:00m. In Sept 2005, I did my first half marathon race in PJ Half Marathon with the timing of 1:58:13. After completed 10km , 21km races. I am intended to ran longer distance.I sign up for the Great Eastern 30km race and KL Ambank Marathon 2006. My target is only to complete the races and get the finisher medals.So, I started my training for this two events which is 3months before 30km race and 6months before KL Marathon.

I ran long distance for 2 to 3 hours during Sunday at Gasing Hill which is nearby my house .In the early morning, whenever passed by the housing areas always chasing by the dogs and I have to slow down.Then, I met Uncle Sonny Ng- Group leader from Gasing Hill Area. He persuaded me to join PACM member.

On Jan 2006, I completed my 30km with the timing of 02h38m22s .After this 30km race, it give me more confident toward KL Marathon 2006.....2 months ways. I just continue my traning regularly.On 05Mar 2006, suprisingly my first marathon complete with the time of 3h58m40s ( sub 4).

I still remember after Laguna Phuket Marathon 2007, I received a mail from Mr Ronnie See (PM1) inviting me to ran Pacemaker Relay Race with one of the team. After that, I also join the LSD ran with a group of pacemakers member and also races organise by Pacemakers.

My most memorable moment was in 2008, when I completed my full marathon with my personal best time of 3h 45m 29s in Penang Bridge Marathon.

So far, I have completed races for 10km, 12km, 15km, 21km, 25km, 30km, KL Towerthon (4), 42km(24), 84km sundown (2) MR25 Utramarathon(2) Northface 50km (1).

Here, I like to thanks Mr Ronnie See( PM1 ) inviting me to the family of Pacemakers.

Thanks.
