The Ports of Call









The War Trip Saga. Above are the pictures (click to enlarge) of the conquered ports of call during the mediterranean cruise (to be continued....).
Running. At last I run painless and I can plan a program to enter some races before the main event in november: the Civitavecchia Half Marathon (it would be the first after the incident). Now I have been able to increase the distance and the speed because the hot weather has gone. Yesterday, after 2 months, I could try a hilly tempo-run 10,6 km. long.
Swimming. Both the pools are closed for ordinary maintenance after the long season so it is only possible to swim into the sea when it is calm (not usual here).
The Program. After a war council the Black Knight Army decided to terrorize the enemy in the following races: Ladispoli 6 km (29.08) and Grosseto (12.09). In the first race 2 official photographers will follow the invincible Army to immortalize the heroic exploits.

  3. Winners have this tendency to rename the places they had conquered. What are you going to name all those ports?

  7. Can you actually land on the volcano? It doesn't look like it welcomes conquerors!
