100 Days of Milo: Day 19 — Classical Sources of the Milo Stories

This website as you may have notices it called Milo and the Calf. That’s after the story of the legendary wrestler Milo of Croton and his allegedly strength training regime of carrying a calf on his shoulders everyday, until it became a bull.

A fairly significant number of people find this site because they’re googling about Milo. So, to fill people’s need for a central place for all the Milo stories, and to fulfill my own curiosity about the wrestlers place in classical literature, I created this page:

The classical sources of the Milo 

As with all the resources and inspiration pages, its updated sporadically, so check back every now an again to get your Milo fix.

Scholar, gentleman, jock. I run the website Milo and the Calf. There you will find the Boston Qualifier Questionnaire where runners share their stories of qualifying for the Boston Marathon. You'll also find my thoughts on endurance sports, ancient history, Judaism, and hundreds of book reviews.
