#2.5- Bonus: Pheidippides True Story or Myth?

Battlefield Command Podcast

I just wished to give my thanks to the growing numbers of listeners out there in this vast world by talking about a runner whose act has gone down in legend. This young man known as Pheidippides should've been the inspiration for the awesome meme hold my beer since if running the entire distance from Athens to Sparta wasn't enough. What about running the roughly 150 miles back to Athens as well. That means he ran almost to a little over 300 miles. Then, Pheidippides proceeded to run all the way to where the Athenian army was encamped at Marathon and still had breath to give his report on whether or not Sparta would fight against the Persians.
