Celebrate the 2500th year with a marathon

Ever thought about running a marathon? Perhaps 2010 should be your year. It was 2500 years ago the Phidippides ran the 26 miles from Marathon to Athens.

The good news is that they didn't decide to copy the 140 miles runs he did before the 26 miler. You can read an interesting summary of his history here.

So, if you have ever considered a long run, you aren't going to find much bigger than the 2500th anniversary!
