He ran so fast that he died after telling people the news. To remember Pheidippides, people held the first modern marathon in the first Olympic Games in 1896. It was about 40 km from Marathon to Athens. But race organizers for the 1908 Olympic Games in London wanted to add something special. They made it 42.195km. And since 1924 the number 42.195 has been kept in marathon. 28 Days in February Before the calendar(历法) we use today, one of the first Roman calendars had only 304 days and ten months (March through December), with six months of 30 days and four of 31 days. The second king of Rome changed the old calendar. He added 50 days for January and February. To make the new months longer, he took one day from each of the 30-day months, and then made 56 days to divide between January and February (28 days each).

C My friend Shakuntali Siberia once said: “Things do not give us true happiness.” I used to wonder, “Is this really so?” But after experiencing a worldwide quarantine(隔 离), I think it’s true. We live in a new, strange world. My new dress hangs in my closet(衣橱) — I have nowhere to wear it. My expensive car is parked — I can’t go anywhere. My gym membership(会 员) card is on my desk — I haven’t used it in a long time. Siberia was right — things do not make me happy. Then how can we find happiness? I asked Siberia this question.

I wrote, “Dear neighbors, I hope you’re having a great day! Everything will be all right.” I added a smiley emoji(表情符号). Within minutes, my phone received lots of messages from my neighbors. People thanked me and wished me a good day. One neighbor shared a fun song, another sent a cute kitten sticker(猫咪贴图), and another sent me a funny meme(表情包). I thought to myself, “I’ve made so many people happy with just a few words. If each of us said one nice thing, there could be so much happiness in the world!” This is why I’m launching(发起) the kind-word marathon(马拉松).

Why don’t you put on the dress and pretend to be a girl?” So I did as Jim said. I took the canoe to the town. Very soon I met a woman and she told me that someone would catch a runaway. This wasn’t good news for Jim. I hurried back to the cave to tell him. We set off down the river for the town of Cairo. In order to protect Jim, we preferred to travel at night rather than travel in the day. What’s more, we covered the raft with leaves and branches during the day. We never got to Cairo. So we continued drifting down the river because the raft couldn’t sail back up the river against the current. We had a few adventures on the way but nobody caught us. Our life on the raft was very pleasant and I was enjoying myself. During the day we made a camp under the trees and slept. As soon as it got dark, we set off again. After dinner we swam in the moonlight or lay on our backs, looking at the stars. Then one morning something happened and our lives changed. I was paddling up a side river to look for berries for breakfast when two men suddenly ran out of the woods. “Help! Some men want to kill us!” they shouted. I felt sorry for them. I told them to get onto the raft and we paddled back to the camp. They were both wearing dirty old clothes but they called themselves a Duke and the King. I didn’t believe them. I knew immediately that they were frauds(骗子)but I didn’t say anything. ---Taken from The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn ( ( ( ( )62. Why did Huck and Jim travel at night? A.
