Special edition of the book "Spirit and Body".

The chronicle of a deed. 524km. Athens - Sparta - Marathon In 2010, after two and a half millennia following The Battle of Marathon, the Greek women's marathon record holder Maria Polyzou, represented the legendary messenger Pheidippides. She ran the 524 kilometres (326 miles) from Athens to Sparta and back to Marathon virtually nonstop within six days, to mark the battle's 2,500th year anniversary. This required her to run the equivalent of a double marathon every day for a week, with minimal rest. "I feel "rich" because I am Greek. Following in the footsteps of Pheidippides, I did the "impossible" and I did it in the manner that he "taught": with Spirit and Body. I thank God every new day that dawns. Every feat is accomplished with God's will and his help. A much higher force than us "humble" beings. It forces upon us the realization that there is only one God and he is everywhere. Now my soul is like the calm sea. I feel like I can achieve anything I set out to achieve.' * The Special Edition includes a box and a "Running the Impossible" shoe lace.
