Marathon Experience The race starts and finishes at the Kim Il Sung Stadium filled with about 50, local spectators. Many runners said that the atmosphere before the race was incredible —- the highlight of the trip and something that will stay with you forever. The reception the runners got when they entered the stadium was staggering —- everyone waving, clapping, cheering, etc. It was like being an Olympic athlete. The energy was crazy.
North Koreans also lined the entire race route along major sites in the city from the Arch of Triumph to the Rungra Bridge. Running through the streets of Pyongyang with hundreds of local runners is an amazing experience.

One participant recalls "my overriding memory of the run itself is the people on the streets.
History of the Marathon
Arimnestos of Plataea grew up wanting to be a bronze-smith, like his father. Then, in the chaos of war, he was taken to a city in the Persian empire and sold as a slave. To win his freedom he had to show that he could fight and kill. Now, to preserve that freedom, he must kill again.
For the Persians are coming. A vast army sent by King Darius to put down the rebellious Greeks and burn the city of Athens to the ground.
Standing against them on the plain of Marathon, a much smaller force of Athenians, alongside their Plataean allies. To defeat such overwhelming force seems impossible. And yet to yield would mean the destruction of everything the Greeks have dreamed of. In the dust and heat of Marathon, in the clash of shields and the rush of spears, amidst the thunder of hooves and the screams of the dying, those dreams will undergo their fiercest test - and Arimnestos and his Greek comrades will discover the true price of freedom.

Marathon (Long War, book 2) by Christian Cameron
Track My Order. My Wishlist Sign In Join. Be the first to write a review. Some of the recipes have become regulars at Le Gavroche, a popular London restaurant for many sportsmen and women. The Marathon Chef is, on the face of it, rather a strange project. Perhaps this is because one doesn't immediately associate chefs with marathons--although no doubt everybody could come up with a name or two they'd like to see tottering across the finishing line in a charity chicken suit.
However, Michel Roux, one-time dauphin and now sun king of the esteemed restaurant Le Gavroche in London, turns out to be a proselytising marathon runner with something of a mission. Since he took up running ten years ago to counter the weight gained after giving up smoking , Roux has been experimenting with foods to suit his training needs; and he clearly feels there's a gap to be filled in the market for healthy, delicious food suited to the needs of exercisers who don't want to be restricted to a diet of rabbit food and plain pasta.
On the evidence of this book, he may well be right. The good news is that red meat, wine, cheese and butter stay on the menu, although, as Roux says, based on his own experience the desire for these technically unhealthy foods diminishes with exercise.get link

There is a good selection of breakfast dishes and a fine collection of mostly fruit-based desserts.
