Corri la Vita was a huge success with thousands of both residents and visitors alike showing up in Piazza della Signoria this morning to take part in the benefit run against breast cancer. We found ourselves in a festive atmosphere crowding the piazza together with over 15.000 other people, many running and many doing the shorter walking course. It was fun to participate again this year because it is one those events that makes you happy to live in Florence. The 10,2km course that we did went through the main historical center, passing by the Duomo and Piazza della Repubblica, before heading toward Porta Romana and Poggio Imperiale, then through the Boboli Gardens up to the Forte Belvedere. For the record, despite the many hours passed in front of the computer, we were able to run the whole course in a little over an hour and are quite proud of our results. 🙂
