Ladispoli 6km

The Heroic Deeds. On Sunday the Black Knight and Sir Giorgio (with his obsequious page Massimo) marched to Ladispoli to free the people besieged by 94 barbarians who sacked the town with savageness and cruelty. The battle was engaged inside the industrial desert zone and in less than 30 minutes the enemy surrendered; no mercy, we didn't take prisoners. The 2 Knights fought heroically and the Sir Giorgio's obsequious page took the following pictures before and during the bloody battle:

The Report. The race took place onto an undulating path totally under the sun and part through the country where we had to slow down to avoid injuries. As Sir Giorgio wrote, the Garmin fixed the distance in 5,8 km (3.6 ml) instead of the official 6 km (3.73 ml). After a control on the official web-site and a call to the organization, we can say that the Garmin underestimated the distance, so the scores are:
Sir Giorgio: 26'03" - 4'21"/km - 50/94 over all and 14/22 age group;
The Black Knight: 29'08" - 4'51"/km - 67/94 over all and 7/12 age group.
Tagged. The kind Lady Anne tagged me with the "I'll take that with a Cherry on Top" award. The deal with this award is you gotta do these 3 things:
1) Answer this question: if you had the chance to go back and change one thing in your life, would you and what would it be?
2) Pick 6 people and give them this award. You then have to inform the persons that they have got this award.
3) The third and the final thing is, thank the person who gave you the award.
So here we go: I don't have many regrets but if I could change something it would be to come back on that september 18, 2007 when I badly broke my leg in many parts. Well, I would take my car instead of the motor-bike!

  12. Are you sure the Black Knight and Sir Giorgio aren't discussing the trouble BK might be in with the Queen if he puts his stinky armour and shoes inside the castle?

  17. Good job with the race. I love how everything is related to the battlefield.

  18. We can all go back to one moment in time and remember it well. That's what makes life memorable. Good to see you're running again. Here in the new lands, the nay-sayers (that would be the party of no-way) are trying to beat the forces of progress down (hey, we now have health care, sort of, and financial reform, in a manner of speaking, and only one war instead of two, maybe, and no more harsh interrogations, I guess) and I think they may be surprised in November.
