Summertime

In the kingdom of the Black Knight the sun is shining, the weather is hot and the subject people are on the beach enjoying the peace and the prosperity that the kind Sir gave them.
The borders are safe and the garrison spend the time in the fortress (in the picture the local ancient Michelangelo Fortress).
The Black Fleet is in the port because our Pirates sank the enemy battle ships.


In this peaceful period the Black Knight decided to enjoy the summertime riding a bike every other day and running every other day, waiting for including swimming in this ambitious program. The italian legion is a 5 knights Army and we are all together only in summer, because 2 of us live in Rome (72 km. - 44,7 ml), for this reason the (funny) tri will be "served" by July.

It means that the Black Knight will not enter anymore races in June and July: only funny-thriatlon and big celebrations to remember the most important victories. About this topic, the Black Knight and Sir giorgio took the decision to find a race (not longer than a half marathon) in January-February 2007 to show abroad, in Europe, the Black uniforms.

Breaking news: We are glad to announce that Sir Haight joined the glorious Black Knight Army as "Good warrior".

  1. Enjoy the break from racing. Sounds like a good plan to alternate the biking and running.

  2. Ah - summer time fun! I can't wait to hear about the funny triathlon. I have one planned, too although it will use the traditional sports. It might be more fun to have a bowling, dancing, hula hoop triathlon, though.

  3. there's a tri in cincy where instead of swimming, you start off in a canoe, therefore you have to have a team of two. i can see Sir G and Sir in canoes!

  13. Racing can drain you over time. Do what you need to do to keep yourself focused and when you do race again you will kick arse!

  19. I feel honored and humbled to be part of such a royal group. Is there some kind of initiation next? Slay a dragon? Save a damsel in distress? Push a hockey puck down the street with my nose?

  20. If there is a "Good Warrior" in your army, does that mean you still have use for an "Evil Warrior"?
