Just a couple of hours before I write this lines my good friend Simone passed away. He lost the fight to cancer. Finally.

People have lost contact with Simone in the last couple of months, as it was very hard to get hold of him. Simo was one of the most committed runners, warmest and smartest human beings I have ever met. Not only the italian and irish running community, which he loved so much, will miss him.

His incredible will-power brought him back not only once. As the disease hit again and again even he couldn’t respond anymore.

I lost a friend. Running lost it’s biggest fan.

Run free “Sumo”.
