THE FIRST GOAL. At the moment the main goal is the Roma-Ostia Half Marathon on Feb. 25th, the first in Italy for participants. To start without wasting many minutes, there are the final expecting times gates: until the 1h50’ you can enter a gate, if not you must wait in the back of the pack with the crowd. Last year I didn’t have a “credit”, so I had to arrive 1 hour before to get a good place beyond the gates but, for this one, I have the right to a “comfortable” place inside the 1.40 gate; it means that I can arrive 10 minutes before the start.
THE NEXT CONQUEST. The Black Knight is a supporter of the Italian Rugby team and he will go, with his son, to London to watch the rugby match England-Italy on February 3rd. The trainer begged the Black Knight to play with the Italian team but he rejected the proposal because the other players want to play the game with the usual “azzurre” (blue) shirts instead of the famous and invincible black armour. The English team is happy not to meet the terrible warrior in the rugby field of Twickenham but England is not safe because on February 4th the Black Knight will run the Mornington Chasers Regents Park Winter 10 k race and there will be a slaughter of enemies.
THE NEW ENTRY. Always more warriors run to find protection under the Black Knight Army’s flags. The New Entry is Lady IHateToast and her role is “purple maker”.
