Beginning and ending at the “Colleseo”, there is no other marathon in the world than runs through magnificent history like the Rome, Italy Marathon. March 18, 2012 was the 18th running of the Rome Marathon and my international race of the year. It was a race that shattered perceptions and included lots of cobblestones.
This race was not one for a PR, but it was a PF for My Girl. Plagued by knee and hip issues (coming from, we believe, a weak core), training had not gone exactly as planned for her. In fact, there was even some doubt prior to race as to whether or not she would be able to start. Prior to the race, she had never run more than 13.1 miles. Would she finish?
