If you could ask Pheidippides a question, what would you ask him?

This post is in reply to Christina's 3rd question in the running question challenge.


Question:

If you could ask Pheidippides a question, what would you ask him?

Answer:
The first question that popped into my mind when I read Christina’s post was how long did it take? That was followed by what was he wearing? Did he drink any water at all? Was he carrying some weapon or armor? Then I also wondered, did he really run the distance or is there some myth attached to the story? Anyway, this is a great question, I wish I could really meet and talk to the guy.

Those are great questions:) I just couldn't think of any...but now after reading your questions a few more pop into my mind! Have a good one Johann:)

Great questions...I didn't even think of armor, which you know he must have had.
