Orbetello Night Run
Prologue. Yesterday the Black Knight Army - Sir Giorgio, his squire Massimo and the Black Knight - went to Orbetello, a nice town in Tuscany famous for its lagoon, to run the 6,3 km (3,9 ml) night run. This is a race with 3 laps into the historical center, full of tourists, through very very narrow streets on a difficult ground (big stones).
The Report. It was a surprise because we found a pack of fast runners. I decided not to push too much because I understood that it was impossible to enter in the first 3 of my age group. Finishing time 29'40" at the pace of 4'43"/km (7'35"/ml).; 152° of 196 overall and 15° of 17 in my age group!!!!!! Yes I am a humble member of the last pack!
After the race we had a drink to recover: beer for Sir Giorgio and his Squire and tea for the Black Knight.Question: How do you spend your post race time?
