Henry Russell’s (I) poem titled “Ode to Pheidippedes” will be published in the upcoming issue of Aethlon: The Journal of Sport Literature. Henry says he was inspired by Ron Smith’s poem, “Running Again in Hollywood Cemetery.” Captain of Milton’s cross-country team, Henry read this poem almost every day and eventually memorized it. Henry spent months writing his own narrative poem, which is a reflection of events and relationships in his life. While Henry is pleased his work will be published, the poem was also an important personal accomplishment.
