Run tints my world

Dear Ms Nike,
Our shining smiles did overcome your anonymous t-shirt.

Cara Signora Nike,
I nostri raggianti sorrisi hanno annichilito la Sua anonima maglietta.

But I keep thinking that coloured is better.
Ma sono ancora convinto che a colori è meglio.

As per the race. It didn't go as expected. Better.

From the left:

Riccardo closed it in 54 minutes and 48 seconds. We betted he could run under 1 hour. He owes me an ice cream now.

Soonpeel closed it in 54 minutes and 32 seconds. He had never run 10k. He actually never run before coming to Singapore. And he did it, in less than 55 minutes!!! This is a serious man.

Christina closed it in 1 hour, 6 minutes and 9 seconds. Stronger than any ache to her knees. Her first race. Never run over 5k. Promoter and supporter of the group, best smile of the race. She owes me an ice cream too.

I closed it in 41 minutes and 21 seconds. Way over the planned 39 minutes and something. On my defence: a) we arrived late and I started at the end, lot of people to pass; b) at 6th k I had to stop 1 minute for... physiological needs; c) I ran all the time with t-shirt and singlet, d) I ran outta gas; e) I had a flat tire; f) I didn't have enough money for cab fare; g) My tux didn't come back from the cleaners; h) An old friend came in from outta town; i) Someone stole my car; j) There was an earthquake, a terrible flood, locust's. It wasn't my fault!! I swear to God!!

Julia closed it in 1 hour 3 minutes and 9 seconds. Way faster she claimed to be. She was the first one I met after the race. She probably had never seen me that happy.


Almost forgot. How did it go with Nike? We all had to wear the Nike t-shirt, right? Well, art. 12 ordered to wear their tee. Not to show it... Lawyered!
Quasi dimenticavo. Com'è andata a finire con la Nike? Tutti dovevamo indossare la maglietta Nike, giusto? Beh, l'art. 12 ordinava di indossare quella maglia. Non di mostrarla... Lawyered!
