Liberty Run Christmas

The Race. Sunday I have run the Liberty Run Christmas, a challenging 10.3 km race, with many uphill as you can see on the elevation chart. As I promised myself I took it easy making a simple workout: my competitive spirit suffered but I finished the race without being tired and, more important, with no injures! It was the slowest race of my life, but I am happy.
Stats. 10.3 km in 55:33 (5:24/km – 8:41/m) – 101 of 117 and 4 of 5 in my age group.
No complaints, I am on the road again. The Black Knight is back!

  10. Good job! And it's all relative - your slowest race ever would still be faster than my best 10K time...

  12. That's fantastic Stefano. 5:24 ks on a lumpy course is very respectable. Great pic of the army. Excellent to hear you pulled up with no injuries. I am jealous!

  13. Great to hear you're back running and enjoying a 10 km Christmas race. I know that you aren't trained enough at the moment and the track was really challenging (I ran it three years ago). Unfortunately, I didn't run that race last Sunday as I was in Naples.
    Please, Have a look (if you have time) to website of the Campagnano's 10 km race which will be held on January 5th. I hope it will be my first race in 2014.

  16. Hooray, Hooray, HOORAY!! I am so happy to hear you're back running (and holy smokes, I'm not sure I could run that pace anymore).

    Merry Christmas, my friend. Looking forward to your many stories in 2014!
