Close to the cruise terminal

I haven't been blogging since October 3rd as I haven't been running as I should. I did a run this morning: less than  50 minutes on a cloudy morning because I don't like running on my own.
However  my last running session gave me the opportunity to enjoy that cloudy weather, as I ran past the  cruise terminal. I took a picture while I was running there. 
  Happy running/walking/cycling to everyone.

Echinoderms

This is a very short post which had been written with the aim to show a particular sea dish.  Italian people who live next to the seacoast know and eat echinoderms. Maybe other people do the same. Anyway, I show those echinoderm which can be served in Italian restaurant. My son sent me the picture below last week, while I was eating echinoderms in a local restaurant. He knows I love them.
Have you never eaten echinoderms ?
Unfortunately I can't have them ... it's a high cholesterol content food.

Sunny beach in September

Hello blogger friends, just to say we are still enjoying sunny beaches here down on the 42nd parallel North. Water is so clean and resorts are not crowded as you can see in the picture. I can go swimming twice a week, and I do the same on the running front. I'll increase running sessions in Autumn, as soon as Summer goes to an end, and I don't go swimming in the sea. 


Have you never bought a watermelon so heavy? It is more than 16 kg. After I had bought that watermelon I carried it by motorbike ... my daughters' motorbike. In Summer I  sometimes eat a big slice of watermelon after running: Made up of 92% water, watermelon is a great snack to have on hand during the hot summer months to prevent dehydration. In addition, it provides vitamins and minerals.

Happy running/walking to everyone!

Soya milk and coffee with a smile on top

This morning  I didn't have my breakfast at home because I was late. So I had no choice but have soya milk and coffee next to my workplace. The waitress wrote "Buongiorno" (Good morning) on the cup's top. She also wrote a smile on top : ) 
I thought she really love her job.
Weather is still sunny here down, as you can see in the picture below which was taken from a small flat close to the sea. I was there for job.
Nice weekend to everyone.

A beach covered with stones

Despite we have beaches with sand here, located at 5 km North from the town, I go swimming next a small beach covered with stones. As you can see in the picture below, the beach isn't crowded, and the water is so clean there. I am also running three times a week, although I've not planned  any race. 
Fortunately, this Summer has been never too hot ... until now :-)  


The beach here below in the 2nd picture, covered with sand, is located in South Italy. I visited it last week. The sand is quite white there.








And last but not least, swordfish sliced cooked on red-hot stone, and my mother with her 79th birthday cake.









Nice walking/cycling/running to everyone.

Back running



Hi to everyone. I haven't been blogging since September. I'd like to write just a few words to say I am back running in the hills.
The picture shows energy source with “Zero Impact" on the atmosphere, which I can see in the hills where I live and run. On the one hand, wind energy gives the opportunity to reduce CO2 emissions. On the other hand, the countryside is going to change.
Nice runs to everyone!

"Deep ruby" running shoes

Just a short post to share a picture of  the  new running shoes which I bought two days ago in Rome. As usual, I got a pair of Asics "Gel-kayano", and  it's the first time  that I get purple (or deep ruby) running shoes. I bought them from a specialized running shoe store, where I noticed that if I had bought the same running shoes through the internet I would have payed almost the same price. Obviously, the difference is that in a specialized store you can try the running shoes. In addition, you can get advices.
 
Do you usually buy your running shoes through the internet or at a specialized running shoe store?

Nice week to everyone!
