Peg’s Posts: In Phiedippides footsteps
On October 31, 2010, runners from around the world will take part in the Athens Marathon. It was only 2,500 years ago when that fleet-footed messenger laid down the first 26.2 miles. Now that’s some history for ya’. The race site boasts that runners will tread in “the very footsteps of the ancient gods and heroes that gave birth to western civilization.” How experts know the exact path of Phiedippides without the aid of a Forerunner or Garmin Connect, I can’t fathom. But I do know I’ll be able to see the exact path taken by fellow Garmin associate Sunita, who’ll be running on Sunday with her Forerunner 310XT. I’ll post more on Sunita’s Athens experience later. For now, here’s a quick update on her travels:
“We've gone to see the Acropolis (Parthenon, Agora, Roman Forum), Tower of the Winds, National Archaeological Museum, and Delphi,” said Sunita. “Delphi is a city about 3 hours away where the oracle used to prophesize at the Temple of Apollo–that was awesome!”
