Another run in Athens, Greece

At the end of my trip, I took another run through Athens and followed a similar route as my first run. However, instead of running by the Parliament I cruised through the National Garden.
I zipped by the Zapion Exhibition & Congress Hall…
...on my way to the Panathinaikon stadium, which served as the finish line for the 2004 Olympic Marathon.
I made my way around the Temple of Olympian Zeus.

And then I ran up to the Acropolis where I was able to get in this time and check out the Parthenon…

And the Temple of Athena Nike which is being restored.

So jealous...although Boston in the winter is almost as cool! haha. Can't wait to get some training in with you guys. You're still doing Hyannis, right? I may just be doing the half as my recovery took a little longer to get started...

Scott-awesome photos. If you are lucky enough to run around Athens, you have to bring your camera --hope the trip was productive, business and running wise.
