26 Miles in Athens: Running the Marathon the Greek Way
A gathering of the world’s elite marathoners will line up this month for the most sought after championship in the sport: the gold medal in the Olympic Marathon. This will not be just any marathon; it will be the marathon. For that matter it will start in Marathon, the site of Phidippides’ famous run into Athens in 490 B.C., the precursor to all of today’s 26.2-mile madness.
