Marathon Pacers

The fate is sealed. It is confirmed. I will be part of the Pacers Team for the 4:00hr timing at this year's SCSM07. Went down last evening to collect the Adidas sponsored Pacers running gear...was surprised to see a running T-Shirt instead of a singlet.

Was bright an early at the ECP this morning where all the Pacers gathered for a full-dress rehearsal. As I was having the Demoralizing Run the next day, I decided to do just 15km. DO and I attempted to stay together all the way, doing about 5:35min/km pace. We were at the back of the pack most of the time...haha....but we stuck to our pace nevertheless. We were joined by many familiar faces, and was even running with the Mt. KK Climbathon photographer, Wee. Wee had done a few marathons within the one year since he heard and shared in our running experience, and today, he is a motivated and improving runner....nearing the 4hr mark for a!

Had a briefing after the run by David Tay, the man who started this whole Pacer thingy in support of runners at the SCSM...a very commendable effort indeed. We were all slotted into the various time slots which were comfortable to all, averaging 3 runners per pace group, covering (3:45, 4hr, 4:15, 4:30, 4:45, 5hr, 5:15 and 5:30 for the full marathon) and (1:45, 2hr, 2:15 for the half-marathon). There will be a Pacers-meet-the-Runners session at CBD area on Tuesday for the CBD runners to get an opportunity to try out their targeted times with the respective Pacer teams.
