Thank you Lady Angie Bee. I found in my mail box this wonderful gift from Lady Angie Bee I won the "Real Men Wear Kilts t-shirt giveaway". It arrived just in time because next week I go to Scotland with my son, so I will be able to wear this shirt with proud.

Virtual 5k. Detroit Runner(Jeff) organized the "I just felt like running virtual 5k". I have ran that distance yesterday as second part of my 10k workout. The route was easy, flat and with a perfect weather: sunny and warm morning. The finishing time was 24'10". Thank you Jeff.

Training. This week I could not swim because I got a little surgery to remove 2 dangerous moles, however I made 4 workouts: a 20 km. long run with Sir Giorgio and his group, a 12,2 km. tempo run, a 13.4 km. slow run and a 10 km. run including the virtual 5 km.

Ladispoli 10k. Tomorrow the Black Knight Army (Sir Giorgio, the Black Knight and their squires Massimo and Francesco) will march to Ladispoli to subject the rebel people. The invincible Army will meet the regiment led by Sir theyogi coming from south. It will be a deadly tongs: we don't take prisoners. The race is crowded but easy, totally flat with part inside the beautiful natural park of Palo. I think that this time the loot is poor, we will see.

Rugby. I am leaving for Rome to watch the rugby match Italy-France and, as usual, with no chances because we don't have a specialist kicker. Before going to the stadium we will eat this pizza (pictures taken the last time we went to that restaurant near the Pantheon).


Spring. Here it is already spring as you can see looking at the trees of my garden. I am a bit allergic so for me this is not the best period to run. Which is your favorite season?

  3. Non vorrei gufare, ma domani è prevista molta acqua.. ricordo una gara a Ladispoli(prima si correva molta + strada nell'oasi wwf) che nella notte tra sabato e domenica era piovuto così tanto che c'era una pozzanghera che aveva preso il Master per diventare lago e era profonda 30-40 centimetri e lunga 20-30 metri... fu uno spettacolo irripetibile, all'uscita da quel lago eravamo tutti irriconoscibili.

  6. Spring time is not yet here in Colorado, though our temps in winter are usually mild, our altitude (6000' in my backyard) makes it too chilly at night for things to start blooming yet...but when they do, I have pretty bad allergies to those beaufitul flowers and the pollen floating in the air. Spring is not easy for me to run in, but because Colorado is so dry, summer tends to be so brown so spring is my favorite because it's the short window things are green here.

    Good luck with the 10K, go out and kill a few more men!!! :)

  8. wonderful! It looks like the shirt fits and so perfect that you will get to wear it in Scottland.

    I like summer the best. The evenings are the best time to run! The smells of cut grass and people cooking out and being able to wear little and feel the breeze. Lovely.

  9. Great shirt Stefano!

    Hope you had a great and fun 10K race with the army.

    My favorite seasons are Spring and Fall. Spring is slowly arriving here and it feels great to have the door open during the day again.

  11. What a great model for the shirt!

    Glad you got the moles removed now...I've had to do the same. The downside to too much sun when we were young!

    Enjoy your trip!

  12. That shirt is a perfect match for a trip to Scotland. Have fun at the rugby match and good luck in the 10K!

    I like spring and fall the best. My birthday is in April and I like that the weather gets warmer in the spring. I also like fall because the tree leaves change to vivid reds, oranges and yellows.

    Glad you got some good running in and the moles removed. :)

  15. I am so jealous that you have spring! It is still very much winter here with several inches of snow still on the ground. Good look luck at your race! Also, I love the new picture at the top of your page.

  16. No chance...? And Italy won! Congratulations! I'm sure this must have been a very special game to witness. Well done Italy! And yesterday South Africa beat India at the cricket world cup and my rugby team (Lions) won their Super 15 game as well. All smiles from here to Italy!

  18. I hope your army was victorious in the battle of Ladispoli. I guess 48:27.

    I like the new header photo - you are leading the race!

  20. We will have to come up with a Rain mantra! Any ideas?

    And seasons--I love running in the fall.
