I've never been a runner!!! I was playing soccer but it's not the same.
2005: year of changing!!! I had to stop playing soccer (at certain level) 'cause my work did not permit me to follow all the trainings, trips etc...Now I still play soccer but with friends, not in a serious way as before...I spent all the summer in relax and enjoying my holidays but in september when I felt the smell of the grass something started missing inside me. I was missing the feeling of the competition, the adrenaline,the fatigue . So I decided to run. At first I was running just for fun, for fill up my missing of adrenaline, but later on I had to put a target during the way and this target was New York City Marathon. I still remember the date.
When you get the target...you feel powerful.
2006 my target was to run all the marathon, without a time...well honestly I put a limit time and was not more than 5 hours.
I run in 4h.16m
2007 my target was to run at least 2 min better than 2006
I run in 4h.05m
...now for the 2009 I've a new target. Run within 4 hours.
I did not run others marathon, maybe one day I'll try London or Berlin or Boston...but at the moment I want to train my self for the next level... I'll try and we'll see...
I'm quite sure to achieve this target 'cause running with 2 millions of people giving you power through clapping hands, cheering, music, singing...
Running in NY you can't feel alone, you're running with 39.000 runners and 2 millions to the sides of the street...tks to this you can''t feel drawn.
