Bieg dla Poli

19/8/’17 Bieg dla Poli – Kilometry Pomocy : Relacja

Another 5k in the books, and the training we put together lately seems to pay off. The race took place in Las Osobowicki on a slightly different course than the last time, and – notwithstanding the bad weather forecast that worried us for most of the week – on drier terrains. Almost 400 (376) runners lined up at the start line, but after the first few meters, the race proceeded without slowdowns. 3-2-1 and Francesco Minuzzi was out of sight, on his way to complete the 5k run in some 21 mins. A couple of mins beyond, Michele found his ideal pace and carried on in control, while adrenaline got the best of myself and (as usual) I went out a bit too strong to fade out in the end. And inevitably, with less than 500m to go, Michipedia overtook me in beautiful fashion, not even “ciao” beaten but not cracked, I managed to remain in his wake on the last meadow leading to the finish line. Fun fact: I started with the number 97 and Michele with number 98, and he finished in 97th place and I in 98th in about 24′ and a half 🙂
