A runner and a classical scholar, Marcolongo intertwines ancient history with personal memoir as she emotionally and physically prepares herself to run from Marathon to Athens. This book felt delightfully like if What I Talk about When I Talk about Running and Good for a Girl had a baby, and then that baby studied sport and wit directly from the great classic philosophers herself. Excellently written, and a must-read for runners who are also musers.
