Description
The name Marathon comes from the legend of Pheidippides, a Greek messenger. The legend states that he was sent from the battlefield of Marathon to Athens to announce that the Persians had been defeated in the Battle of Marathon (in which he had just fought), which took place in August or September, 490 BC.

It is said that he ran the entire distance without stopping and burst into the assembly, exclaiming (Nenik├ękamen, 'We have won.') before collapsing and dying.

You beat Feter and that's not easy.
Kind of you say such cool things about my efforts Jack but in fact this "masterpiece" needed a few changes so up goes another version. But they do take a while and it's often quite a battle to bring one of these babies out. I'm sure you know all about that.
Take Care,
Charlie
