Half Marathon in Pisa canceled

The half marathon that was supposed to be run in Pisa – and the one I’ve been training for the last 3 months – was canceled last minute due to the extraordinary conditions caused by the snow here in Tuscany. Airports in Pisa and Florence are closed, the trains are not moving, the roads are blocked so there is no way to get there. The Piazza dei Miracoli, with the Leaning Tower as you can see above, was to be the finish line and it is nicely covered with a layer of snow. I guess if the roads are still icy because no salt has been thrown yet it is better for the safety of everyone for it to be canceled — but what a disappointment!
