Rugby. At last the 6 Nations tournament began and yesterday the Black Knight and his son Paolo went to the Flaminio stadium in Rome to watch the match Italy - Ireland. What a pity the Irish, with a last minute drop, defeated a brave Italy 13 - 11. Indeed at the end of the first half, the italian head coach begged the Black Knight to play part of the second half (as you can imagine this was the only chance to win for sure) but, despite the insitence, he could not accept because he cannot change his training program for the Roma-Ostia half marathon. Here you can see some pictures.
Dogs against Runners. Last friday the Black Knight planned to run the same distance of the half marathon on a hilly route but, in a narrow solitary street in the country, he met a threatening huge shepherd dog. Immediately the dog, growling, pointed the Black Knight so there were only 2 possibilities: to come back or to kick the ass of the dog. The stupid animal was lucky because the Black Knight decided to come back not to humiliate the dog in front of his sheeps. For this inconvenience the run was 23.6 km (14,6 ml) long.
Have you ever met a threatening dog while running?
