Of the many special things we enjoy during our vacation in Italy each November, one of our favorites is attending the Florence Marathon and cheering on the runners who are brave enough (and so fit!) to run that race.
Having met several runners over the years at restaurants around town, we have a ball trying to pick them out during the race and take a photo to share with them. This year, while having lunch at Trattoria Mario, we were fortunate enough to sit at the same table as Thorsten and his wife from Munich, Germany.
Luckily, we did get photos of our new friend (#4024) in the race. Congratulations, Thorsten!!
Runners continued to round the bend, and we did our best clapping, cheering, and urging the runners on – Way to go, Thorston!! But wait…..
As we glanced to our right, what did we see?!? Lola’s Cousins! (Now if you haven’t had the pleasure of meeting Lola, take a look at her Mom’s blog….you will certainly want to read about Lola’s antics….and so much more!).
Ciao, Lola. From Italy – with love and big wet doggie baci baci (kisses) to you! 🙂
