This Sunday I paticipated in the San Valentino marathon in Terni. It was my first marathon and I did not prepare as well as I should have, but I finished. Very happy I did!
The marathon and the half-marathon started together, in Ferentillo. With buses we were transported from Terni to Ferentillo. We ran though the Valnerina and under the Marmore waterfalls. A beautiful route. Then in Terni the half marathon ended and the scenery was not as nice, running through part of the industrial area of Terni and the flat countryside is not something you will write home about. However, it was all very well organized.
Upon arrival there were freshly grilled bruschetta’s with olive oil. I think I had about 4 and dipped extra in the oil … could have eaten other 4 without any trouble!
If you like running I can heartily recommend to participate in the half marathon. For a full marathon in Italy I guess I would choose one of the famous cities like Rome or Venice … !
