Filippo

Filippo. Filippo, my second grandson, was born this morning at 06.30 a.m. Here is his first photo taken one hour later. Welcome to the Black Knight Army!
Susan & Serena. There are other 2 newcomers arrived last monday: Susan and Serena, my daughter Elisa's cats. Here they are with the brother Umberto.
33 km (20.5 ml). At last, on sunday, I succeeded in running 33 km (20.5 ml) under a warm sun. It was a slow run, with many short uphill, at the 5'48"/km (9'18"/ml) pace. Now if the things go well (no flu, no bronchitis, no cold, no antibiotics for some stupid reason) I will run the Pisa Marathon on Dec. 18th.
Happy Running

  17. Congratulations! But Filippo is too young for the Black Knight Army. He needs to start in cadets first!

    Well done with the 33k. 4:48 kms is not slow! That's a good pace for a long run. Happy to be reading about Pisa now.

    As for your 33, I knew you could do it so no surprises here. :-) Pisa Marathon will be a breeze. Hope your tapering goes well.
