The marathon is a race with a long history.It was first run over two thousand years ago in Greece by just one runner.The race became a part of the ancient Olympics.The first
marathon in the United States took place almost one hundred years ago.It was held in New York City.The year was1896.Another marathon was run in that same year in Boston. But these aces did not get a log of attention at that time.There were not man
runners then.And only a few were willing or able to run a race of more than 26 miles.
But in recent years jogging has become a very popular sport.People who at one time
could barely run a few yards to catch their morning buses are now jogging.Many people run one or two miles a day.And marathon running appears to many of them.The
number of marathons has grown to keep pace with the public interest.Now a marathon is run somewhere in the United States every week of the year.
