Tuscania 10 km race

I hadn't run race through the rain since February 9th, 2014. And I wouldn't have thought I can still running a 10 km race at a good pace, as I am not adequately trained at the moment.

After I had run the first km through the old town of Tuscania, along dangerous hilly roads covered with wet cobblestones, I ran close to organic farmlands and through green fields.
I enjoyed a beautiful countryside and at least 2 km of soft running path. 
I crossed the finish line  completely wet  because of the rain. 
My average pace was 4:40 min./km.

The three last pictures have nothing to do with the 10 km race which I ran today. Some friends of mine sent me them after they had run the 2017 Rome's Marathon today ...  They also ran in the rain!

Happy outdoor adventures!

Warm day in the rain I enjoy, but not when its freezing outside. Looks like you had a great run, and the countryside must have been amazing.

I really enjoyed running through those green fields, Thomas. Beautiful!
