Three-Peat for Jurek? Follow the 2008 Spartathlon Live

On the eve of the 2008 Spartathlon ultra -- which starts at the Acropolis and runs 246 kilometers to Sparta -- all eyes are on Scott Jurek as he tries to string together three consecutive wins (race site).  With a solid crew behind him, including Justin Angle coming off a solid third at Angeles Crest (previous post), he's got more than a solid chance to take the victory and be the first to kiss the bronze foot of the ancient Spartan king, Leonidas.
