Spirit of the Marathon: Playing One Night Only

I have said in the past that if you are aching for fitness inspiration, you should go watch a marathon. Well, if you can't make it to an actual race, you must see the documentary Spirit of the Marathon. It is playing one night and one night only, Jan. 24, at 7:30 p.m. at theaters all across this fair nation of ours.

Here is how the filmmakers describe 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.

I saw the trailer for this before the holidays and have been looking forward to it ever since! I'm training for my first half marathon (and later, a marathon at the end of the year), so the timing of this is absolutely perfect! I can't wait to see it tonight!

Very cool. I bought my ticket--hopefully I'll get off of work in time to see it. I ran Chicago last year--if it wasn't 90 degrees then it would have been a great race!
