Italy's most multicultural city





















The two pictures above have nothing to do with running. They were taken this month while I was walking through the Italy's largest and most multicultural city. I'm talking about a Rome's neighborhood located close to the main railway station, where most people who live there aren't Italians. And it works great! Of course that neighborhood  does have its downsides:someone can't find Italian items in the shops located along that street and restaurants mainly sell exotic dishes. 
Back to the running topic, I haven't planned to run any race yet. Maybe motivation have been decreasing since last Spring ... although  I have bought a new pair of running shoes :) This week I have been so glad to hear that Stefano has planned to run the Christmas race. It will be held on December 22nd and I'll give it a try!

It sounds like it's time to give those new running shoes a test and run with Stefano.

thanks for your KIND support, Char. I really need it ...
I don't know why I am not able to plan a race at the moment. since the beginning of this Autumn I've got weight and lost some motivation. Anyway, I am still running three times a week.

I agree 100% with Char. You and Stefano will both be running the Christmas race.

Where I live, you can have your pick of every ethnic food you could ever imagine! And the local grocery stores are packed with items that I've never seen before - I like to experiment with one new item every other week! Good luck with your new sneakers!
