Spirit of the marathon…

February 8, 2008

Check this out:  “Spirit of the marathon” 


Spirit of the Marathon is the first ever non-fiction feature film to capture the drama and essence of the famed 26.2 mile running event. Filmed on four continents, the movie brings together a diverse cast of amateur athletes and marathon luminaries.

As six unique stories unfold, each runner prepares for and ultimately faces the challenge of the Chicago Marathon. More than a sports movie, Spirit of the Marathon is an inspirational journey of perseverance and personal triumph; a spectacle that will be embraced by runners and non-runners alike.

I want to view this!  Not because i am planning a marathon any time in the near future, but because its so inspirational just to see what can be accomplished with determination and perseverance!

Sure, maybe someday i would love to attempt a marathon again!  It’s a daunting prospect and something i wouldn’t take lightly.  So, its in the spirit of the marathon that i recommend you watch this film!

    I just watched this movie tonight, and I loved it! It was definitely inspiring, for runners and non-runners alike. I plan to run my first marathon this fall, and the movie definitely gave my motivation a boost.

    Hope you get to see the movie soon!
