Spirit Of The Marathon

Watched this movie last night and I must say it was a good documentary. Here is a quick summary of the movie

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.

The movie leads up to the 2005 Chicago Marathon.

I would recommend this movie to runners and non runners. It shows those who ask why we run and those who know we run what the marathon is all about. It was a very well done documentary.
