Did you know…

… that today is the anniversary of the First Marathon? In 490 B.C., Phidippides, a Greek soldier, ran 26 miles to let the people of Athens know about the Greek victory against the Persians at Marathon. He died as he gasped, “Rejoice, we are victorious.” The modern-day marathon is based on this event (the running part!).
