Σύννεφο τριανταφυλλί πέφτει μες στη λίμνη και γλυκό ένα φιλί φιλικό της δίνει. Σύννεφα τριανταφυλλιά σαν τα τριαντάφυλλα γέμισε η λίμνη. Μοιάζει με τριανταφυλλιά με τα τριαντάφυλλα η μικρή μας λίμνη. www.youtube.com/watch?v=_arO8e4o5bQ

In the town of Marathon, just a short drive from Athens there is a lot to see. We ran the first 100 yds from the official start line of the marathon (enough to break into a sweat) Here is the statue of Stylianos Stelios Kyriakides who won the 1946 Boston Marathon. He was running with Johnny Kelley near the end, when an old man shouted from the crowd, For Greece, for your children! inspiring him to pull away and win the race.
