Corso dei Tacchini
Thanksgiving at the NAC is full of rich traditions. One of those new traditions is a 5k race Thanksgiving morning. 60 seminarians and priests woke up early to run 5 kilometers at 6 in the morning around the entire Vatican City State. So I'm pretty confident in saying that this my first experience of running a race AROUND an entire sovereign nation. We had to run the race so early so as to avoid traffic. Along with the race there was also a costume contest.
This picture isn't the best since my head is cut off, but you get the point. You can see St. Peter's dome in the background.
After a brisk run in the morning we all were ready to put away lots of turkey at Thanksgiving day dinner.
