Vivicittà 2015, Via Ricasoli, Livorno
I didn't know much about “Vivicittà”, but yesterday I saw a lot of runners in Via Ricasoli.

This event is a spring half marathon that takes place in several Italian and also European cities. I tried to catch the runners again in another part of Livorno, but they obviously outrunned me.

Nice shots, VP! When we lived in South Florida, Lois Anne ran in over 50 races, including 2 marathons. I think she still holds the state's record for the 5K for her age group.

I would always go to the races and take photos - we have albums full. Unfortunately, my legs do not allow me to run!
