The ordeal of the hard slope

The ordeal of the hard slope

The race has been hard: drizzly and 23 kilometres though hills and valleys.
1 hour and 53 minutes: Stefano has already written the running results on his blog.
I've moved with difficulty to get the top of the last slope (beetwen the 15th and the 17 th kilometre).
You can see this hard slope on Stefano's blog (the post of the 26 january 2006). It's the image of the hill with the castle on top.
But after all, We've enjoyed, the hill scenery has been beautiful though hazelnut groves and ... we've received cheese, wine and pieces of pottery.

A great triumph, now as you can see on my blog the 3 castles are only ruins. They pissed off the Black Knight. Why, why, why, were they so ingenous?

i am liking the loot! i believe if i had such things at the end of a marathon, i wouldn't care about the hills too much. much better than cheapy medals made by 4 year olds in a poor chinese village.
HOWEVER....
i am a bit surprised that they wouldn't have had something extra for the two great Black Knights of Italy. perhaps a feast with a roasted suckling pig with sweat meats?

Great job! Cheese, wine and pieces of pottery??? Damn the Americans--we only get bagels & bananas!!!

There isn't any difference beetwen wine, cheapy medals, bagels and bananas. It's important that you are running and enjoying.
Ihatetoast, I know that your time run is about 3,5-4 min./Km. This is more important than wine, bananas, cheese and cheapy medals.
