The loot (3 Comuni report)
The Black Knight Army arrived to the 3Comuni battlefield (23.6 km./14 m) very angry as usual, because the Enemies seem to forget they must not piss off the glorius Legion. After a short siege the battle ended and here are the pictures of Castel S.Elia, Civitacastellana and Nepi after the ordeal.
The race was very tough with uphills and downhills under a heavy rain until half way; at the 17° km (10,5 m) a terrible heartbreak hill 1600 metres long (almost 1 mile) and after, until the arrival, other less difficult long uphills . Because of the crowd (about 1600 runners), to run the first mile was hard. The landscape is wonderful: green country, farmers and medieval cities with monuments and castles. The Black Knight and Sir giorgio passed through 3 historical centres full of cheering people and open markets. Final time 1.52.49 (pace 4.59/km. - 8.01/m). The split km. by km.: 5.oo, 4.42, 5.00, 4.36, 4.57, 5.00, 4.59, 4.35, 5.02, 4.52, 4.47, 4.52, 4.50, 4.24, 4.35, 4.45, 6.30, 5.34, 5.15, 5.12, 5.07, 5.13 and the last 600 mt. in 3.02. Only for the statistics the time at the half marathon mark was 1.45.15.
The loot of war
The Black Committee is glad to announce that the Black Knight Army has a new clever scout: he is Mr. Rowdy, the Susan's dog.
