Atalanta Large Plush Throw Blanket
Atalanta was an extremely fast runner, the fastest in her village. Told by an oracle that she would be ruined if she married, she let all her suitors know that she would only marry the man that could beat her in a foot race. If you lost against her, you would be killed. Hippomenes heard of her and when they met, they fell in love. She begged him not to race against her. He told Aphrodite, goddess of love, of his dilemma and she gave him three golden apples. During the race, he threw down one of these golden apples from time to time, and Atalanta thought they were so beautiful that she stopped to pick them up, and so he was able to win the race and her heart. Zeus, recognizing the greatness of their love for each other, turned them into a constellation of stars known today as the Leonids, allowing the couple to remain together, racing through the heavens, side by side forever.
