Spirit of the Marathon coming out on DVD!!

http://www.marathonmovie.com/

If you haven't seen this movie, I highly recommend it. We saw it a month or two into our marathon training and it both inspired and terrified me. I love how it doesn't sugar coat anything, yet shows how, with drive and determination you can achieve your goals. It also showed that no matter how smart you train and how much you want it, sometimes injuries will sideline you and keep you from the race.

Unfortunately, it looks like it might be a couple of days too late for those of you running marathons the first weekend in October (Terri and Coffee Betsy come to mind)


*wow... I had over a week of blog drought and now two in one day :-)

I loved this movie, too. I will definitely buy it as soon as it comes out.

I've already pre-ordered from Amazon (actually my sister ordered it for my birthday, along with Run Fatboy Run). There are also a number of theatre screenings in September and October, probably connected with cities where there are big races (e.g. Victoria the day before the marathon). The website has the locations.

Ah, thanks for the heads up. I've missed this twice now when it was in Chicago. I will definitely be buying it . . .as well as Run Fatboy Run per Kristin's comment!

I posted something dumb, then deleted it....

Anyway, thanks for the info on the movie. I never got to a screening and am in SERIOUS NEED of motivation.

And yes, I am kegeling! :-)

Thank you, I'll have to check it out. No worries if it's a bit later for mine, I have a half-marathon afterward too!
