I’m not sure how the rest of the world works, but here in Italy it’s really difficult to publicize any event unless you have oodles of money. But running events don’t have large budgets unless you happen to be the New York Road Runners, and even then I’m pretty sure they have to carefully count their pennies. That’s why you have to accept almost everything and anything in order to get the word out that you have a fantastic running event for women in Bologna in May. This is how I found myself on national television on Friday evening… prime time!
The program is a quiz show entitled I soliti ignoti, in which contestants have to match each person with their job. It’s quite impossible and I’ve never seen anybody win any money on it which is probably why it’s been on the air for so many years!
My job was “organizes races” and I was first up. They told us to keep a poker face the whole time, which is why I look so serious.
Enjoy! Then why not sign up for my race… the JJ Running Festival.
