This picture was shot almost one year ago. It was one of my first training session on a track and it was THE TRACK: the Marble Stadium that bears the name of a very important athlete, Pietro Mennea.

I remember very clearly that day: it was a saturday and the Roman NRC had scheduled a Speed Run with a special guest, Marcello Ambrogi. Most of the other guys already knew him because of his success as both an athlete and a trainer. I was a complete beginner so I had never heard anything about him.

That day I met an incredible coach and extraordinary athlets with whom now train with everyday. But the most important thing is that I discovered an amazing sport and my specility: 400 m.

Since that day I totally fell in love with it all.
