And Oppy’s done it: the first robotic offworld marathon is complete!

After the successful upload of new software to allow Opportunity to resume use of its onboard flash memory (NVRAM), the rover was able to start rolling again and has now passed the marathon milestone of 26.219 miles, by about ten and a half feet.  Congratulations, Opportunity!
