Athens for the 2010 Marathon

We just returned from Athens where Vincenzo ran in the Athens Classic Marathon. It was his second full marathon race, and his time was 10 minutes better than his Rome Marathon in March, 2010.

How I wish I been able to join you guys as I promised I would. Sorry about that it would have been fun to be in one of my favourite cities with my favourite Marathon runner and his athletic supporter.
