Virtual Race and Thank You Lady Karen

Thank you Lady Karen. The kind Lady Karen from “Down Under” sent to me this wonderful t-shirt which I will wear with pride. Thank you, thank you, thank you.


Virtual race. The Black Knight Army, italian legion, would like to organize a virtual race in this month.
Rules:
1. Wear something black (shoes, socks, pants, shirt or whetever you want);
2. Run 10 km in the period Nov. 8 – Nov. 28 (the 10 km can be part of a longer distance);
3. Let me know within Nov. 29th if you ran and if you wore something of black or if you mentioned it on your blog;
I will announce the winners in my Friday post (December 3rd) and will mail the gifts as soon as possible. The awards are 2 black long sleeves shirts random and 1 shirt for the less fast time.
Training. This week 1300 metres swimming and 3 runs: 10.8 km, 20,6 km. and 10 km today for the World Run Day (see the Natalia’s blog); my donation went to a dog shelter
The Black Knight needs you, find your role and join the glorious Army!

  10. I'm running a 10k trail race this weekend, so I will definitely wear black! I'm angling for the slow poke award and the trails and hills will probably help that!

  27. I'm in! I've got a 10 mile race on the 27th, and almost all of my cool weather clothes are black. Sadly, I'll probably be in contention for the least fast award.
