I’m going to join the craze about the GC Marathon by running it. It starts on the 1 st July at 7:30 am. The Marathon is a 42. 195 km long meditation about keeping on going. Its origin is in ancient Greece where a mighty messenger soldier Pheidippides run from The Battle of Marathon to Athens to deliver his message. I still have vivid memories about how painful it was for me last year when I run it with my father. Both of us were the very newbies to this experience.
The legendary Czech long distance runner Emil Zatopek once said: “If you want to win something, run 100 meters. If you want to experience something, run a marathon.”
