Marathon

It’s already been three months since I ran the NY marathon but still feel the pain around glutus medius if I walk a lot. These three months have put on some mass on my body that I want to shed as soon as possible. It’s not conspicuous to other people but to me; So, waiting for the time when I can resume running.

It is interesting to know that Marathon is a town in Greece that was 26.2 miles(ancient route) away from Athens. It’s the place where the battle of Marathon was fought in 490 BC in which the heavily outnumbered Athenian army defeated the Persians. The job of sending the news to Athens was given to Pheidippides who ran all the way from Marathon to Athens without stopping. He reached Athens, delivered the news, collapsed and died.
