Athens Marathon (Greece)
From Ron Fleming
October 31, 2010
( The 2500th anniversary of the battle of Marathon in 490 BC and the legendary run by Pheidippides from the Marathon Battlefield to the city of Athens. )
Here are a couple pictures I had people take during the marathon.
The second was about 22 miles while entering Athens.
Here's a picture after the marathon before leaving the stadium. Pam
And finally a photo of me with Amby Burfoot from Runners World Magazine.
Pam ran/ walked the 5K run on the same day in a time of 48:48. It was a nice sunny day with temperature in the mid 60's and light wind.
While I was in a portapotty line I looked at the next line over and discovered a young man wearing a Hard Core Runners Shirt. I can't remember his name or I would report to you who it is. Eric Knows him and can identify.
