A good week

The lottery. The week began very well, I won the lottery but, what a pity, I did not become rich because I guessed only 3 numbers of 6. Now the Black Knight has 14 euro more to spend! For your information: 3 numbers win 14 euro, 4 numbers 626 euro, 5 numbers 91346 euro and 6 numbers 822.110 euro!!!!! 1 euro = 1.3 $ Rugby at last! On Saturday the Black Knight and his son will go to watch the rugby test match Italia – Australia in Rome. The Australian rugby federation decided to play in Roma to have the honour to know the Black Knight in person. He is very busy but he will be so kind to receive the Aussie team’s homage.
Photos: New pictures are downloaded. Clicking on "photos" now it’s possible to see all the Black Knight's running story from the “age of the stone” until now.
Running: The countdown for the Florence marathon is going on and the tapering is a nice reality. The 4 workouts were consisted of 25 km (15.5 ml) sunday, 14.1 km (8.75 ml) tuesday, 16.1 km (10 ml) thursday and 13 km (8.07 ml) today.
On Sunday the Black Knight and part of the italian legion will enter the half marathon of Civitavecchia.

  3. You look strong and fit in every single picture. You won the lottery. I predict great things for your 1/2 and full marathons.

  4. Lots of victories! Good luck for Sunday. And you are right - I haven't surrendered, just confusing the enemy - I like that!

  5. good luck against the aussies. i think they wanted to play in italy as the food is better! and what better place to have a modern gladiator clash than in italy. i'm sure they have also heard about this dreaded knight and each team member is too frightened to come to italy solo. they need to be in a team.

  8. Bad luck about the rugby. The Azzuri played well, their forwards taught the Wallaby pack a thing or two, but some individual brilliance by the Wallaby backs got them over the line. But what about the dive one of your forwards took from Cannon's girly slap. Have they been training with your soccer team?

  9. Twenty years of racing--Happy Anniversary! It's obvious that running has kept you fit. I enjoyed looking at your pictures. Fourteen Euro is just enough to make you want to buy more tickets. It's like hitting the cherry in a Las Vegas slot machine.

    I see from your pictures that you ran your Half Marathon last weekend. I'm looking forward to the race report. Now rest up for Florence.
