Today when I got home from work I found a package from Australia "To the Black Knight of Italy" and, what a nice surprise, it was a gift from the far friends iliketoast and IHateToast (I don't know how they can get well together with such opposite nicknames, but better I mind my own businness).
Inside there were a Nike singlet + scarf, hat and a bag of the aussie rugby! I will wear all of them with pride.
Thank you, thank you very much, in this way you have satisfied my 2 passions: running and rugby. By the way I have already the tickets for the rugby test match Australia-Italia on 11/11/2006 in Rome.
The training is going on despite the hot weather. The meteorologists said that it depends by the warm winds from Sahara. At the moment I am not following a special program: only 4/5 weekly workouts of about 12/14 km. (7.45/8.7 miles), at a relaxing pace, following the feeling of the moment. In this way I am ready to prepare at the best the Florence Marathon by the 4th of September.
In this picture you can see the photo of the Black Knight Army, italian legion, celebrations. From left: Alessandro, Gianni, Sir giorgio, the Black Knight's wife, the Black Knight and the Alessandro's wife. Completely hidden are the wives of Gianni and Sir Giorgio. Why are they hidden?
