Start/Finish Area : People's Square, Yangon
Official website : http://www.yangonmarathon.com/
My View : Despite making its first debut, the marathon was well organised with adequate drinks and bananas provided and distance markers displayed at every km. The plus point is the overwhelming response from the local crowd who unselfishly gave every runner their biggest cheers and hi-fives!
My Result :
Rank (Men 40+) : 9th of 81
Rank (Overall) : 28th of 207
Gun Time : 3:22:49
Chip Time : 3:22:39
Last Personal Best : 3:32:59 in Oct, 2012 (Achieved new PB!)
Personal Goal : 3:30 (Achieved after 23 attempts in 23 years, including 2 DNFs!!)
Boston Qualifying for 2014 : 3:25 (Achieved non-targeted Bonus!!!)
Now it's time to take a long rest to recuperate from the pain of my poor Achilles tendon!
