HOW WOULD YOU DEFINE YOURSELF? WHICH KIND OF RUNNER ARE YOU? ARE YOU A DREAMER? WHICH HERO ARE YOU?
Every run, training, race, challenge is an event, full of details, sensations, emotions, sometimes pain, some others satisfactions.
I will never forget the feeling of bewilderment, when I saw the starting line during my first Italian Championship of cross-country run. I was 16, and I found myself closed up in a wooden cage, together with my run-mates and 180 other participants: I had never seen such a huge “start”…that big space around us took my breath away!
The best came with the starting gunshot: when the ground under our feet began to tremble due to the hammering of two hundreds youngsters trying to reach the best spot in order to get well to the first curve – everybody, of course, wanted to reach it first!
Space, speed and noise – a deafening noise of legs letting off all their strength onto the ground.
I will never forget the immense satisfaction when I reached the end of my first Marathon: my young son – a little more than one year old- while applauding me, his tired and exhausted father who, although taking part of a mere “province Marathon”, felt emotional and gratified as if he had run the New York Marathon.
