Describe your best marathon memory.


The very first mile of the NCR trail marathon in 2013. It was all downhill. The split was like 6:25. I couldn’t believe it. … Every mile after that was at a much more level and human pace :P

Why do you pace?


It sounds silly. But as much as I love running for myself and the things it does for me, I get 10X more satisfaction, knowing that I am able to help someone else achieve a goal he or she has.
