10 km race through the rain
This morning I ran the Ladispoli's 10 km race through the rain as forecasted. I woke up early at 6 a.m. and had dry dates as pre-race breakfast.They give a lot of energy! On this rainy and windy Sunday there were 1500 runners near the starting line.
After 43.22 minutes of battling wind and rain during my run, I crossed the finish line. I was really delighted with my average pace of 4.20 min./km, although the running path was flat. The scenery along the track was really beautiful and we ran around the Ladispoli's natural reserve which is situated 35 km from Rome and next to the Tyrrhenian Sea.
The Black Knight ran a great race too, but he was angry because he lost about 1 minute along the 1st km after he had started. I think that as soon as he find the photos of the race through the web he will write his race report.
The photos which you can see here had been taken before the race. I ran that beautiful race with the number 892 which you can see in the photo above.
