I ran the 10km so I didn't see the pacers only until 1km near the finishing line. I saw the 4:30 pacers, and I think you guys are very motivating! *claps* The pacers just kept zig zag, trying to get from one runner to the other, through the mass walking crowd, to motivate and encourage them. *claps* :Applause:

P/S: I think the pacers looks extraordinarily cool in their cool pacer running tops!

Big thanks to all the fatbird pacers for the job well done and months of effort in preparations.

Also DO who encouraged me at 37km when I started walking after feeling nausea probably from drinking too much water, BIG 10Q!

He was arrowing many runners around to continue running. In the end manage to clock a PB (4:18 chip time) although suspect the finishing pose not very nice, haha... :D

I would like to to be first to THANK the half marathon pacers! Achieved my goal of sub-2 :)

When I registered for this race, I wrote down on the form that 2hr30min was my expected time of completion. I'm very happy with what I've achieved, with Fatbird's help.

Even though I joined Team Fatbird's weekend training sessions rather late, it definitely did help. ros is a good pacer. I also got a few running tips from DO too :cheers:

Hope we can do this again next year.

Thanks again! :smilie_daumen1:

Thanks to all FatBirds Pacers, Pacees and Friends for the support and encouragement!

Its not easy being a pacer when we are not running our own race but the race of many others following behind and it gets stressful with questions from people like "u sure u on time?".. "is that the correct pace" and etc.

However, Its definitely a very worthwhile experience cheering on the runners on the last few 100 metres and helping many cross the finishing line according to our pace group timings.

Cheers to all the Team FatBird Pacers on a job well done! It has been my pleasure working with each and everyone of you! Special thanks for my Group Leaders ZCO and Beverly (Mrs DreamRunner), it has been a pleasure to be a part of this team. Hope we will have opportunity to work together again!

And not forgetting the pacees for following us and having the faith in each and everyone of us! Congrats on finishing the race! Till then! follow our pace! win your race! :)

Would like to extend my heartfelt thanks and appreciation to the 4.45 pacers of Niwas, acidburn, KokSan and Heng.

I managed to find them at the starting point 3 mins before flag-off; I was so worried that I will be late! The coloured balloons are really a good idea!

Niwas' first words to me was "You OK?" - coz Niwas know about the panic attacks I was having before the race!. I gave him a thumbs-up sign and that set the mood for the run.

The 4 pacers were running together throughout; and it was nice. With the encouragement of KokSan and Heng, I broke away from the group at the 30km mark. I met DO at the 40km mark who was also very encouraging.

Thank you so much TFB pacers for your tips, support and encouragement during the training sessions and the run today. My only regret is not getting to know all of you much earlier. :) Thanks again!

The team spirit of the Fatbird was extremely strong and they were adequately trained and committed. Every pacer fulfilled their roles and aim towards only 1 direction. This is what a team work is all about. The past few months of hard work and training were catered for such a purpose and mission. I am proud of Team Fatbird and always a good friend to them. ^_^

I posted the following in the TFB Training Schedule thread but I think it deserves another mention here of the good job done by TFB pacers.

Well done, TFB and Thanks!
