CoolDown: 010 Can you believe marathon’s were used as fundraisers in 1909?

Ray Charbonneau has just put another running themed book that takes fact, fiction, and opinion in the polarizing world of running and throws them all in the mix. He brings us back to 1909 when an unprecedented marathon started a trend that is now stronger than ever over 100 years later. When did the first age group classification for a running event take place? Lastly, what do your running trophies say about you when you aren’t in the room. The CoolDown is just about sharing the passion and great stories of and about athletes. This was a fun one and we learned a few pretty cool things for the next post run brew cool down!
