The day:
The day is really a BIG day, it was Agung birthday + the PAR run! More than 40 runners from pacemakers network and their friends gathered at KLCC park to show the spirit of PIA and the spirit of TEAM.

Everybody had more than enough preparation for the run except for the 2 OX teams. Turtles and Snails were supposed to build the Rocket and Turbo Engine for the run, but hor, end up the Rocket and Turbo Engine cannot be up on time, so we have to carry back our good old shells :D

That’s why we sapu the last 2 positions, but nevermind la, all of us enjoyed the run and created our own PR. Turtle Head Chong Wah really is the Hope of Turtle, der fastest turtle who finished 2 laps in just 10’27’’! Say Li also had a very good improvement, her new PR of 15’47’’ now compare to last time almost 18 minutes. Phyllis the Turtle Tail, after 60km ultramarathon last week still can pia so fast, really salute her spirit of running. Me aka Turtle #3, performance so so only lo. Very the hungry that day, running without breakfast and can hear the gong sound when running, almost blackout after lap 1 leh…

You know Turtles only targeted to win Snails, we were so worry cause der Snail Captain Boon Keat and Snail #2 Joey were about 2-3 minutes ahead of us, hehehe… luckily we managed to potong vege… opps… potong snail at 3rd runner :P Pity Snail #3 Man Lee and Snail Tail Geok Wah… Potong snail wasn’t something proud actually, cause the turtles were kena potong by all like nobody business, hahahaha

2 OX teams were the noisiest one at the park, luckily we did not got caught by the guard. Even OX teams had showed the great team spirit, but still not comparable to Penguins. Cos 3 penguins accompanied the last runner for 2 laps and hands together to cross the finishing line, hahaha.. see, how sweet is the penguins!

Last but not least, must thank all other runners in the run who motivated us to run, run, and run, then pia, pia, and pia! Also, must thank the organizers and volunteers for their efforts in organizing and helping this event, very nice trophy indeed! (I like the baton made by recycle paper roll very much!)
