Today I made a big decision.
I am going to Greece at the end of October to run the original marathon for its 2,500 anniversary.
Well, why not?
Will I ever have another opportunity like this? Probably not. And let's face it, the 2,501st marathon doesn't sound nearly as appealing or cool.
Running a marathon was never really on my list of things to do until a little over a week ago. I heard some people talking about it and thought, Yeah! I can totally do that! Mind over body, right, Heath? I can totally do this.
Athens, here I come!
(Oh, and I promise not to drop dead at the end, like Pheidippides did.)
