Besides training and racing together we developed a good friendship throughout the years. A couple of months ago Simone ended his book „Lo Zen, la Corsa e l’Arte di Vivere con il Cancro” (Zen, Running and the art of living with cancer).
In the book he describes his way out of a cancer sickness and how running drove him all along the way to battle through all the pain. Currently the book is only available in Italian but should be available in English at the end of this year.
Go and buy it!
