Some people call it destiny, some call it karma and others think that it’s good luck or divine providence. There are so many ways to define that unpredictable part of our being, of our existence, the part that’s guided by chance, or by a superior being out there or up in the sky. Que sera sera, sang Doris Day. Of course, it’s even better if you end up getting what you want. Or is it? The important thing is to strike the right balance between desires, expectations, the effort made to reach long sought-after goals, and actual results. The balance between yin and yang: one simply cannot exist without the other. Rights and obligations, freedom and rules. As you all know, the Maratona dles Dolomites – Enel has a very clear and serious set of rules. There are no exceptions and no favouritism, even if this often means saying no to many applicants. We do so with regret, but it’s a feeling of regret that is also shared with the joy of those who have managed to take part this time around, those who are in Lady Luck’s good books – Lady Luck, that blindfolded goddess with so many faces, capricious, revered, loved and hated, yet always positive. After all, it’s the surprises and unexpected joys in life that make it so wonderful. So, we’ll celebrate with those who’ll be there, and we’ll keep our fingers crossed for those who can’t make it this year, but who’ll maybe manage it next time. See you soon, at the Maratona dles Dolomites - Enel!
