I was turned on to the Phedippidations PodCast by JavaTraveler, who recommended it here on the board. First, for anyone who hasn't given it a shot yet I suggest you do so. Casual runner that I am, I didn't expect to find much value in an hour long production about running...I was wrong. It's not all about running and it's full of motivation, inspiration, and fun stories with an added education factor.

Second, Steve, with the help of some fellow runners around the world, has created something called the Phedippidations World Wide Half Marathon. The dates for this 2nd annual event are October 13th and 14th. The event also includes a 5k for those not up for the half marathon.

I'm registrant #100 and will be shooting for the 1/2 marathon one month after running my first ever Marathon.

It'd be nice to join everyone here for a run that weekend. Any takers or have some of you signed up already?


Phedippidations World Wide Half Marathon

The World Wide Web, and the Internet have drawn people all over the world together, and dissolved barriers to communication and isolation. Runners, are by nature, social creatures who seek to share their experiences on the road, compete with each other, and establish friendships that transcend their individual beliefs, cultures and localities.

The sole purpose of the Phedippidations World Wide Half Marathon is to remove the barriers to camaraderie, with the intention that like minded athletes who harbor this passion for running, could share a single experience of competing in a world wide event.

The Phedippidations World Wide Half Marathon is a free, non-commercial event where everyone is invited to register, train and run with us in the spirit of friendship.
