On Saturday someone from the St. Croix Valley Running Club said they were going to Greece to run the Athens Marathon (Link). Another runner said to read "What I Talk About When I Talk About Running" by Haruki Murakami (Link). Haruki talks about his experience running the original route, only backwards from Athens to Marathon. To summarize, the run was hot. But he has a lot more to say and so far the book has been good. I figure tomorrow I will have plenty of time to read while I recover from my 20 mile Get Ready to Rock run.
