For wifey it was her first medal since she started running 8 months ago and I am so darned happy and proud of her. Eight months ago she would have balked at the idea of running and here she is now doing a 10K run with ease :D
For those not in the know, just like me, the Asia Master Athletics event is to keep the master athletics, from 24 Asian countries which is affiliated with Asian Master Athletics (AMA), fit and healthy and a reunion of old friends. This year the event was held at Bukit Jalil which started from the 6th of December 2010 until today.

Good thing we were both familiar with the route as we took a drive a few days earlier to check out the route, which was a good thing mind you cos we knew how to pace ourselves throughout the run.
|One heck of a cool running attire :P|
Overall, it was a good race for me. While I may not be as fast as I was in my youth, I still broke my own personal best time crossing the finish line at 57' 14", taking off a full 2' 45" from my last 10K run which was the Nike City 10K run way back in October.
The only sad part about the race was the very few participants that took part. Wifey and me have been to quite a few races this year and they all had loads more participants that it was awkward seeing the very sparse crowd at this event.

Oh and I must say that I totally detested this FTAAA official who was blaring away on the microphone thinking that everyone there were total idiots. I don't even want to bother talking about her! She made my blood boil.
