The next battle




Despite the bad weather and the usual tricks of the cruel Garmin, the Black Knight goes on with the scheduled program until the final triumph of Rome. This is a tapering week after the tough one: Monday 14 km. (8.7 m) tempo run, Wednesday 12 km (7.4 m) and tomorrow is scheduled a relaxing slow 10 km (6.2 m).
But on Sunday the battlefield is waiting for the glorious Black Knight Army for a terrible fight: thousands of barbarian enemies will try to defeat Sir Stefano and Sir Giorgio unaware of the danger they run. We cannot be merciful because we told them in advance not to piss off the Black Knight but they seem to be deaf. What can we do? Well, it will be a 22.6 km (14 m) race named 3 Comuni (3 towns) because we will run throught 3 different cities: Civitacastellana (3rd photo), Nepi (1st photo) and Castel S.Elia (2nd photo); everyone on its own hill and (really!!) its castle. The Black Knight Army, Italian legion, cannot wait to storm and sack the 3 castles.
The Garmin: after the adjustments the error is between the 0,44% and the 1,3% but I need more tests.
Ciao, see you soon.

  1. 3 Cities are awaiting three black flags. Your victories will be celebrated across the seas and the legend of the Black Knight will grow as the word goes out.

    Be proud, be strong, and be watching out for the coward dogs.

  5. You are one lucky Knight to be able to conquer those three glorious cities. There is nothing like that around these parts. Only farm houses, no castles.

  7. Wow, if that's the scenery you'll encounter in your race, it may prove a big enough distraction to your enemies to allow you the victory you so desire. Run strong.

  11. The 3 enemy castles are going to be destroyed. Now the black knight is very angry.

    Lora, how did you hear the voice of the black knight Stefano? He've always written on his blog until now.
