Orbetello's 10 km Christmas race


This morning I ran the Orbetello's 10 km Christmas race  along a tongue of  land projecting westward into the Orbetello's lagoon. The organization was good and while we were running we saw a beautiful scenery.
It was a sunny and cold morning: perfect for winter running. I finished in 45:26, 3 minutes later compared with the previous 10 km race that I ran in October. But I think it was a good time taken considering that since October I haven't followed a specific running programme and I haven't done a tempo run every week. Next year I will try to do a tempo run every week because we  are running the Ostia's 15 km race in January.
Stefano ( Black Knight ), who is writing his race report, ran a great race this morning. As request by Julie, from Maple Grove (Minnesota), I  show below a photo which has been taken before  the race, while I was doing the warm up.

Congrats again to Christina from Phoenix (Arizona) who ran the 5 Km Jingle Bell Run and was first in her age group! 
Tomorrow we are going to Naples (South Italy) where we'll spend our Christmas holiday.

I think that I belong to a wonderful  running community :)
Happy Christmas to all the blogger friends!

Enjoy the Christmas time in Naples. Great race despite the troubles caused by your humble servant (no running pictures). Thank you for the mention.
