Klang Pacer NB Run & Power Run

Before I say my comments on the power run 10km this morning.. my congrats to Shih Ming who came in 2nd place in the women veteran for the Klang Pacer NB run this morning. Last week I email to some of you that I predicted that SM would be in top 3, based on her current form and fitness level, well she finally made it.. look like we have 'new kid in the block' esp the Ladies Veteran. Keep it up SM and need to improve more on your speed.
(Yeoh's will post the pixs soon)

Imagine Power 10km run, no water statioon for 10km but for 7km ada, aiyoo dunno what the organiser doing , look like we runners are been taken for a ride , as much i want to support the local runs look like i better give my entry fees to running clubs who organise runs.

When i ask, and the comments i get.. its the organiser.. and who are the organiser FTAAA or Power... ???????

Maryann came in 6th.. as she was not in form today.. stop quite number of times .. whilst Michelle came in 11th.. hmm probably the cycling at broga on sat. could have effect ????
Saw Siok Bee at the 5km mark as shw was on the way back from Sri Hartamas doing her 25km run but in the end she completed 27km..

Had b'fast at Jalan Imbi and met Chan Chee Seng (Organiser for the Tri), and was informed that after the A'Farmosa Tri, he will be coducting clinic esp swimming at open waters in PD twice a month and will be giving advise to swimmers how to improve your swim in the open sea and Siok Bee, Michelle were beaming and keen to go.

Last week, I ran the shoe string run at Kota Kamuning organise by a community group to raise funds for austistic children.. it 10km run but got 3 water stations and all the junctions there are marshalls and also sweeper to ensure that the last person are escorted. Kudos to them its their 2nd time organising and next should they organise next year, i will surely promote the run.

Ok, what's up the coming week...
May 1 - 3 - Langkawi Wilderness Challenge - SM, SL & Kelvin (Hope SM be in top 3)
May 3rd - Midnight Run .. Meet at Bkt Aman, Mohan, Ching Tai will be there with a group of runners running about 6okm.. heard that Ultraman Ngae and Yip will be there also. (Rays, pls contact Ching Tai if both of you are keen else Yip)

Btw guys.. keep May 25th evening free 'cos "Everybody Loves 2 Raymonds" bowling tournament, details be posted later.

have a productive week ahead..

Olympic Torch Relay - KL

Francis representing PACM carry the Olympic Torch

Dear All,
Today, 21th April, Francis Toh, on behalf of the club
jogged 200 meters of the Olympic Torch Relay in Kuala
Lumpur under tight security. The only time I was
allowed in front of the jogging group was when waiting
for the oncoming runner to light his torch. After
that, when I tried to run ahead, the Malaysian Special
Force personnel shouted for me to stay behind.

On May 3rd, Mohan and gang will be doing a midnight run also in KL, venue to be decided..

Mohan's email
Dear Running Friends at Pacesetters, This NYT report was published in our Straits Times last Saturday. Very interesting report - with emphasis on 'pacing'. Dr Paul Thompson's tips are very good.....sigh...if only this report was published before KLIM....then the Kenyans would not have had a chance! Frankly, I have never been able to do a 'negative splits'.... susah lah for me - must go back to the drawing board on this! Hope with the much awaited Sundown Marathon in Singapore around the corner, you guys are training smart. I think it is extremely wise to do at least a couple of night runs - I think there are groups in KL organising that. To share my experience, my brains fell a sleep during the two night runs that I did recently....! sigh!!! A few of us are possibly doing a midnight LSD on 3 May 2008, Tony's group is also doing one in Putra Jaya. All the best, see you guys at Bukit Aman this Sunday - rain or shine! Cheerio mohan

English is a crazy language

I got this passage today. Let's see how crazy it is.

There's no egg in eggplant nor ham in hamburger; neither apple nor pine in pineapple. English muffins weren't invented in England or French fries in France. Sweetmeats are candies while sweetbreads, which aren't sweet, are meat.

We take English for granted. But if we explore it paradoxes, we find that quicksand can work slowly, boxing rings are square and a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig. And why is it that writers write but fingers don't fing, grocers don't groce and hammers don't ham? If the plural of tooth is teeth, why isn't the plural of booth, beeth? One goose, 2 geese. So one moose 2 Meese? One index, 2 indices?

Doesn't it seem crazy that you can make amends but not one amend. If you have a bunch of odds and ends and get rid of all but one of them, what do yu call it? If teachers taught, why didn't preachers praught? If a vegetarian eats vegetables, are humanitarians cannibals?

Sometime i think all the English speakers should be committed to and asylum for the verbally insane. In what language do people recite at a play and play at a recital? Ship by truck and send cargo by ship? Have noses that run and feet that smell? How can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same, while a wise man and a wise guy are opposites? And if I'm uncouth, are you couth?

P.S. Why doesn't Buick rhyme with quick?

HK 65km run by Mohan

On March 30, Mohan did KLIM 42km the following week he off to HK and ran 65km..
below his cerita....

Dear Kawan kawan....

Just came back from the HK 65km run.... (or should I say 'attempted run' in my case...).
Route was tough, road & off road, some slopes very steep - makes our 'hockey stadium' stretch rather easy...
Cut off time was 10hrs.
No marshalls along route, only at check points - got to just look out for "blue dots" painted along the route.....

I managed to do only about 45km of the 65km route....
This run is really a good eye opener, for me.... did my post-mortem... know my mistakes, hope to come back a
stronger runner....
Ego bruised, but not dented.... I will certainly attempt it again next year.

Our good friend Seow Ping, finished the whole course in 9hr+, congratulations to her for well deserved win.
Wonder woman cam in "cramp-free", smiling and of course happy with her performance. No doubt at all that she has matured
from a treadmill runner, to a marathoner, and now an "ultra-marathoner".....!
Well done, we are proud of you, and I am sure that Tai would be most happy that he bet on the right champion....

Till we meet this weekend, take care and have a great week ahead.

Greeting from Singapore

Race Details
Date: 11th May 2008
Venue: Start and End Point, Palace of Justice, Putrajaya
Time: 12:30am
Distance : 30km

Please Inform all your Female Friends !!!!!

Hi Guys..

Below email I r'cd from a fren works at Bursa KL..M not sure whether this happen in KL but Ladies just be cautious.

A woman at a bar on a Saturday night was taken by 5 men, who, according to hospital and police reports, gang raped her before dumping her.
Unable to remember the events of the evening, tests later confirmed the repeat rapes, along with traces of Rohypnol in her blood and Progesterex, essentially a small sterilization pill.
The drug is now being used by rapists at parties to rape AND sterilize their victims.
Progesterex is available to vets to sterilize large animals.
Progesterex is being used together with Rohypnol, the date rapedrug.
As with Rohypnol, all they have to do is drop it into the girl's drink.
The girl can't remember a thing the next morning, of all that had taken place the night before. Progesterex, which dissolves in drinks just as easily, is such that the victim doesn't get pregnant; she won't conceive from the rape and the rapist needn't worry about having a paternity test identifying him months later.
The drug's effects ARE NOT TEMPORARY -
They are P*E*R*M*A*N* E*N*T!!!
Progesterex was designed to sterilize horses..
Any female who takes it willNEVER BE ABLE TO CONCEIVE...
The weasels can get this drug from anyone who is in the vet school or any university. It's that easy, and
Progesterex is about to break out big on campuses everywhere..
Believe it or not, there are even sites on the Internet telling people how to use it.

Please forward this to everyone you know, especially girls...
Be careful when you're out and don't leave your drink unattended.
Please make the effort to forward this on to all you know...

Guys, please inform all your female friends and relatives!

不会表达自己等于比哑巴更惨。这句话可能有很多人不同意。 哈!不会表达自己还惨过哑巴,不会瓜!哑巴是不能说话是障爱来的. 但是表达自己是多麽的重要。

就向这位作者说他怎佯和女朋友分手的过程,分手之后很不开心,就想到了这句话,不会表达的人,不如哑巴。 然后他觉得这句话背后真的有那个意识在那边。 人与人相处就要表达,表达也代表沟通。有几多人是不愿意或不懂得沟通呢? 情侣之间难道用眼神就可以表达? 情侣之间难道用感情就可以表达?

人是一种,眼前发生什么都可以相信的人。 今天不理你几会表达,几会讲话。 当你遇到事情发生时,你的表达处理态度都会显出你是一个会不会沟通的人。

人生气的时后最怕讲了一些会后悔的话,比如说分手啦,你走啦,不想见到你啦,不要讲这么多啦,等等等。 这洋的断话都表示了你不想根对方沟通。 当你和你的爸爸妈妈相处的时后,你敢不敢沟通?和太太或丈夫相处时你敢不敢沟通?在跟以前的情人想见的时后你敢不敢沟通?

很多人觉得沟通是件很麻烦的是, 因为大家的理念不同。 其实如果我们是兄弟姐妹或天天面对面, 要不然那理念基本上是不能相同的。

人与人之间必须靠建筑沟通的桥梁, 如果不会建筑沟通的桥梁,那代表一身都处于弱势,不会和人表达。

最明显的是情侣啦,试问谁会沟通,我相信在情侣里面只有30%敢沟通,50%不敢沟通,20%说了等以没说。那你是属于哪一方面呢? 敢沟通的情侣绝对幸福因为了解对方。 不敢沟通可能好点,可是问题一定暴发。 讲了等于没讲代表你不信任这个人。


沟通能够将你带到一个四通发达的地方。 人与人之间了不了解,相不相信,喜不喜欢,都是因为沟通。
