My 200th post

Hello everyone! This is my 200th post.
I haven't been blogging since last month.(sorry for delay). Next week I'll be on vacation and my best destination will be the Ponza Island. Two days ago, my  sister sent me the picture below which shows the place where I'll spend a three days next month. It's the place where my mother usually lives in Summer which is situated in the hills close to Gaeta. Her house's rooftops are covered with photovoltaic panels. We are going to celebrate her birthday on August 2nd.
I have never seen such stunning rainbow through that valley.
As usual, in Summer I lose the ability to run over a long period of time without getting tired. I haven't plan to run any race in the next two months. That's why I didn't run the 10km race which was held yesterday in my hometown. On the other hand, I gave my support as volunteer, providing water along the track :) and got the t-shirt of the race although I didn't run it. Some runners from Sweden and Netherlands ran that 10km race as they were here in Italy on vacation. Beautiful atmopshere before the race.
I'll probaby sign up for a Half Marathon which will be held in October. The running path will be around the "Vico lake" here in Central Italy. So, at the moment I am trying to maintain my running shape considering that our body sometimes needs a break.
Happy Summer to all my blogger friends!

Seems that you are enjoying your summer. We had another cold front go over yesterday so this morning was -1°C at my house. Enjoy your vacation!

That is a beautiful place to stay, have a great vacation.

Yes, sometimes it's good to give the body a break. Sometimes it tells you that it's time to do that like mine did.

Plenty of time to get ready for the half and cool that there were Dutch runners at the 10K

A beautiful place, enjoy your vacation.
Many years ago I ran that half, it was a nightmare: many uphills, hot sun and no water. But now, I think, the things will go better ... if they have learned the lesson.
...don't forget the black uniform, the Black Knight Army rules!
