Pink houses

I have just planned my next race: it's a 5k race which will be held in Rome on February 8th. I don't do the registration through the race's internet website as I'll try to do it two hours before the race.  
And now two pictures which show pink houses in the middle of the town. I took the pictures last week while I was running through the pedestrian area, where there isn't any noise pollution or car's emissions.  

In addition, the two pictures show that it was a cloudy morning, although since the beginning of the new year we have had Autumn temperatures without cold, snow and rain ... until now.

Happy running/walking/biking to everyone!

Assault on Democracy

I'm still astonished to see the assault on Democracy in Paris this week. And while French Policemen are still dealing with one of the worst terrorist attack in Europe for half a century, today Vatican Square seems quite deserted: Italians and tourists are feared terrorist attack on Vatican. 

The Christmas tree and the Nativity scene are still there, in the middle of Vatican Square. 

This post has nothing to do with running. Sorry for that!
Freedom will always be stronger than barbarism!

I already did a race in 2015

Hi  everyone! Have you had a good beginning of the New Year? I hope so! I have been glad to see that most blogger friends began the New Year along running paths in a wood, through the countryside, or simply walking/hiking. With regards to walking and hiking I have just seen the useful post written by Amy Crawshaw, from Leuven. In her interesting post she underlines the difference between the two verbs walking and hiking. Thanks again for sharing those information, Amy! As it is known, English isn't my first language, that's why I am always interested in this kind of posts. The meaning of words and expanding my vocabulary will always be the most important of learning English. The British  language is constantly changing, so I need to keep up to date with new words and new ways of speaking.
Maybe, the picture has something to do with the two verbs above mentioned, as it shows the post-race atmosphere which I saw this morning :) 
I already did a race in 2015: this morning I ran a 5k race in a place close to Rome.
On this sunny Sunday, the runners gave something to eat such as cakes, wine, and olive oil, while they were making the registration. The food was collected to benefit social cause programs in Rome and surroundings. 
I'll try to find other pictures through the web later.
Enjoy your walking/running/hiking!
