Last year in the first 5 months I ran 1143 km. (710 ml) and finished 7 races; this year only 624 km. (387,5 ml) and 3 races! A very unlucky 2007 for running.
Race: With only 9 relaxing workouts (max mileage 11.5 km. – 7.1 ml) the Black Knight entered a race of 9.4 km (5,8 ml) in Montalto di Castro inside the electrical farm: a futuristic landscape in the middle of gigantic generators. He was wise and shrewd, he could not waste his reputation of invincible leader of an invincible army, so he disguised himself as an errant knight wearing an anonimous red armour instead of the glorious black one. He didn’t want to force the pace not to risk an injury. The race was a tragedy: 9.4 km. (5.8 ml) in 45’32” (4’50”/km – 7’47”/ml) without smoking any runner! 94° of 114 and 12° of 15 in the age group.
The wedding: But the month of may was wonderful because the Black Knight’s son got married with a blonde princess: both 27 years old. It was a great celebration and all the Black Knight family is happy. For the important event the fearless leader gave freedom to all the prisoners of war!(Black Knight family)
The visit: The Black Knight and his gracious Queen received the much appreciated visit of Dori and her husband Dave. They are both very kind and nice persons. We spent 2 days together and the Black Knight had the honour to run for 1h and 5 minutes with Lady Dori under a heavy rain: she is a very good runner, fast and tough. Dave escorted the Lady and the Knight riding a war-bike. The scared enemies remained hidden in their refuges.
