It's nice to run with no reason and just because you love it. Running makes me feel good and I always try to run with other runners as a team. I like sharing my runs and running paths with the beautiful blogging community. Thanks in advance for visiting my blogs and leaving comments.

Marathon training, 23 km
View of Valmontone's park
On this sunny Sunday I ran 23 km long run related to Stefano's marathon training and the average pace was about 05:50 min./km. The weather was hot enough and I had rehydration problems although we had drunk three times along the track. It isn't easy to drink enough water before the run at 07:00 a.m.!
I got energy for that long run from a Turkish cake with walnuts and honey which I had the night before :) We made this cake (It's name is Baklava) and you can see it in the photo below.

The photo below was taken last Sunday, on September, 11st and it shows my daughters Laura and Simona with their friends on the Valmontone's roller coaster, which is situated 40 km South of Rome. Laura is the first from right with the black shirt and Simona is the first from right with the white shirt.

They're 14 and today, September, 18th is their birthday. I'm happy for that!
