On 16th March 2008 Homegym Director Alan and his friend Robin completed the 14th Rome Marathon. This was Alan’s forth marathon and the weather was great for the occasion.
Narrow streets, slow Italians and cobble stones hampered early progress but he completed the task in four hours and one minute. The route was very pretty passing many famous landmarks including : The Trevi Fountain, St Peters Basilica, Piazza Navona and the Colosseum.
Thank you all very much for your good luck wishes and support during the long dark hours of training.
Next stop the Shakespeare Marathon 27th April, and a chance to break the four hour barrier !!!!
