Marathon Running For 1930 – Strength Magazine – April, 1930

In the center of a large stadium a long line of runners takes its shape. The brilliantly dressed crowd which fills the immense bowl ceases its loud hum of talk and laughter and becomes hushed as the announcer steps forth to proclaim the blue ribbon event of the present day Olympic Games. Far above the heads of the runners the many colored flags of the different competing nations wave brightly in the soft breeze, their black shadows casting a long line on the bodies of the athletes assembled below.
