This could be the high point of my trip to Greece.  Today we went to Olympia, the site of the original Olympic Games ~2,700 years ago.  And I ran in the original stadium of the Olympic Games.  

It was hot. I had hiking shoes on me.  I was carrying a fairly heavy backpack.  But I didn’t care.  I would hate myself for passing up the opportunity to run in the original Olympic Stadium.  I ran from one end of the stadium and back.  Runkeeper said I ran 320 meters in 1 minute 43 seconds.  Not very fast, of course. But I did run.  

There was also the place where they light the Olympic Flame, in front of the Temple of Hera, the wife of Zeus.  

This place is great.
