Here's a little inspiration for those of you who might consider visiting Greece some day, or running a marathon there, or both!
Look at that gorgeous water. Don't you want to be right here?
And, of course, we can't forget the inspiration for the marathon in the first place:
Who could forget Pheidippides, the original marathoner, who ran
from Marathon, Greece to Athens to deliver a message?
Pheidippides, unfortunately, did not survive his run. Legend has
it that he collapsed and died upon completing his mission.
Melissa and I, on the other hand, have successfully completed one
marathon. We know what to do and how to do it. We just have to
maintain our focus - we'll have to keep training and keep saving.
We'll keep you posted!
Big Fat Greek Marathon Fund: $0
Goal: Unknown (they send out information in February)
Days until our next race: 18
