Marathon? Everyday I ask to myself: "what about another marathon"? The incident 4 years ago was terrible and I don't know if my leg can stand a marathon and the training with all those long distance runs. The goal would be the Florence Marathon, in 3h 59'59", on nov. 27th. Last february I finished the Roma-Ostia half marathon in 1h 46'12" and for the first time I thought: "I can do it again". I have the whole month of July to take a decision. Who knows? This is the photo of the last meters of the Rome Marathon 20 years ago: 3h 34' 09".
Training. It's really hot and the workouts are not easy. This is the training of the last week: running sun 10.2 k; tue 12.2 k and thu 11.5 k - swimming mon and today 1500 meters.
Cat. My daughter Elisa has bought a Sphynx cat, his name is Umberto. He is the first on the right.
Plants. An insect, the red weevil, has destroyed all the palms of our city. I had to cut 2 wonderful high palms in my garden. On the left of the sunflower you can see an ill palm. This is a very sad situation.
Question: What is your favorite plant or flower?
