i begin join running since the "90th"(1995 if i'm not mistaken)...which's my Secondary school time... by joinning FTAAA Runs, such as Larian Aman/BeritaHarian Run/The MalayMail Big Walk...etc. Most of the Run..are less than 10km + Student price(Rm 5 only for Registration)... and i didn't take it seriously...coz i'm an Otaku宅男
.. i take it as Fun Run.... run walk run walk....run.. and never thinking to Run a Medals.. =_=!
after completing Form 5...i didn't participant any Run...anymore, and started running at Parks which's "Permaisuri Lake Park"... i only managed to finish non-stop 3Loop(1.3km_Lake Route)..and slowly increase to 8Loops.. MAXimum! Damn Slow too.. with Barefoot ING~
In year 2009 by Chance somehow i met Loh Wing Keen.. and he bringing me & introduce to the "Permaisuri Runners" a Big Family^^ early of the 2010... which i starting join aNR Permaisuri Group.. from that time..i purposely go buy a Running Shoes "NB" Rm186(my most Expensive shoes i ever brought!)..and so..on... keep learning bout "RUNNING"....little by little... my 1st Serious Run is 8.4km(4.2km x2loop) at aNR.. every Friday... and pace by Loh.. my timing is 52minute~ after the run...i Feel Blur blur....my both hand feel Freezing! it's take bout an hour..back to normal, this kind of Feeling keep continue bout 2 to 3 month..

And from there i 1st time knew bout the existence of "Pacemaker Runners"..which always Running in a Group(Fast) and kept Record Timing! told by Loh~~ from that moment i learned bout the Word...
