Prologue: On Sunday jan. 29th the B.K., Sir theyogi, Sir Giorgio and his humble servant Massimo left the Black Knight Kingdom in early morning to go to Castel S.Elia for a tough race 22.550 km (14 mi) long: the Maratonina dei 3 Comuni. It is part of the mountain circuit race. The path, never flat and with only downhill and uphill, is called the devil’s buttocks as you can see here:
We ran through 3 medieval little towns: Castel S.Elia, Civitacastellana and Nepi; every town was built on a hill. The battle was bloody and the siege was long. As usual we didn’t take prisoners. Here are the pictures of Civitacastellana before and after our raid (the photos are real and both the places are in Civitacastellana):
No previous goals, only to finish this difficult long distance run as training for the most important half-marathon of Italy: the Roma-Ostia at the end of february.
Stats: 22.550 km (14 mi) in 1:55:33 at the pace of 5’07”/km (8’14”/mi); 1210/2121 overall and 97/215 age group. The loot was interesting: a sport bag, olive oil and an artistic plate.
