Prologue. Last Saturday (June 4) the Black Knight (n° 7) and Sir Giorgio (n° 8) went to Rome to run, through the beautiful park of Villa Pamphili, the Corri per l’Acorp (6 km – 3,7 ml) an event to help the children in Brasil. There we met the blogger GIAN CARLO (n° 108) and we took a photo all together. We ran in a hot afternoon (30° C - 86°F) on a dirty patch full of dust.
The report. It was a total failure, I don’t know what happened but after 4 km I was already tired. The last 2 km were a real ordeal, a nightmare. Sir Giorgio ran all the race near me because he noticed that I didn’t feel good. Finishing time 30’02” at the pace of 5’00”/km. (8’03”/ml), 102° of 170 overall and 18° of 25 a.g. Here is the photo of the final “rush”:
Question: In case you don’t feel good: is it better to finish the race or to withdraw? Have you ever had a similar experience?
