I'm leaving to Rome!!! (Read 518 times)

    O.K. in 10 hours I'll be leaving to Rome; Sunday, March 18th. I'll be running the Maratona della Città di Roma. It's my first (asphalt) marathon and I'm so nervous I know I won't be able to sleep tonight. I just want to finish it, no matter how long it takes me; I can picture me arriving to the finish line at the Colliseum and just with this thought tears come to my eyes. It's going to be magical.
      Oh, wow, a finish at the Colliseum ... that's awesome! Best of luck for a safe trip and a fantastic race! Cool

              Good luck in this wonderful, wonderful city. You should have plenty of time to adjust to time change and carbo loading in Italy is no problem whatsoever Big grin. Hope you will share your marathon experiences with us. I am so envious. Have fun. Ewa
