The Last Chance
Marathon: the last chance. I planned 3 months of training, since september, to run this sunday the Florence Marathon but many health problems (teeths and bronchitis) didn't allow to follow the scheduled plan and I had to give up. I skipped many workouts included long distance and tempo runs. As second possibility I thought to enter Latina (dec. 4) or Reggio Emilia (dec. 11) but the first is psychologically tough because there are 3 laps to do and the second is far from here. The last chance is the Pisa Marathon on dec. 18, a beautiful city of art and only 2 hours of (fast) train from here. But .... between the Black Knight and the Pisa Marathon there are 33km to run tomorrow or sunday.
Surfing the web, I have found these two pictures of the Trofeo Todaro that I ran last September with Sir Giorgio. As usual in these places there were few (only 75) but fast runners.
