22.55 km race
This photo shows a bottle of olive oil (two liters) and it's the loot :) which I got today after I had run a 22.55 km race around three villages. I got a dish too (2nd photo) and other things such as croissants, orange juice and yoghurt. There were 2400 runners and the organization was good. I enjoyed the race although the weather was cold enough and distance of the running track was really strange: 22.55 km. Why not 21 km? Anyway, I crossed the finish line after 1.49.50.
There were a lot of volunteers who gave water and warm tea while runners were running next to hazelnut trees, along a beautiful countryside and through the historical centres of three villages. From the 15th to the 17th km the running track was tough because it was totally up-hill.
Stefano , who likely got knee pain after he had run that tough race, will show the chart of the hilly running path.
I hope all you blogger friend will have a nice week and pleasant runs!
