A gift to this year’s Marathoners: An extra hour of sleep!

Just a reminder that Greece observes daylight savings time and this year the clock falls behind one hour at 3:59 am on Sunday norning, October 31, 2010. This gives runners & walkers rising early for the Athens Marathon, as well as the rest of us, an extra hour of sleep. Nice!
This comes from the timeanddate.com, where they’ve got the dates for the next 9 years listed by country. Greece “springs ahead” the last Sunday in March and “falls behind” the last Sunday in October.
