Quote of the day
“To run Marathon to Athens in Greece, tracing the supposed historic route of Pheidippides in 490 B.C. It’s hilly, it’s hot, it’s not the most well-organized race, but it’s still Marathon to Athens. I was there in 1972 and wanted to run it, but didn’t want to barge in. I already had a reputation for doing that in Boston.”
