Update on 2016 goals

Just a short update on how 2016 is going. At the beginning of the year I wrote a post about my goals for the year, and I am pretty happy about how things are going so far.

The first goal for 2016 was to reach the summit of Monte Amaro, in the Majella massif. I reached the summit during the evening of the 15th of August, bivouacked just outside the Pelino hut, and went back down the morning after. The night was humid but not really cold, and I did see few shooting stars and even a passing satellite. On Stava you can find the GPS track of me going up, and then going down the day after.

The second goal was to run a half-marathon, and not just the distance, but a real race. And I just did that. Last Sunday, the 16th of October, I was one of the over 18000 people participating in the Mizuno Amsterdam Half Marathon. Not only I was able to run the whole of it, but I managed to run in under two hours (official time being 1:57:10). And, the most important thing, I did have lots of fun running it, and the atmosphere of the race was awesome. Again, this is the Strava GPS track of the race.

 

There are still some months to go on this 2016, and I hope to achieve even more outdoor goals 🙂
