Spirit of the Marathon
Judging from a number of blog posts, it seems many of us went to see this movie last night. I was fortunate enough to meet up with Maddy. Joining us was my husband, the newest marathoner. We had a great pre-movie meal at the Cheesecake Factory, then enjoyed some running inspiration. It was interesting to enter a theater full of runners.....not so many buckets of popcorn and a very low audience obesity rate.
I especially liked hearing the story of the elite runners as well as the "everyday" kind of runner.
If you haven't run a marathon (and are considering it) you should go see this movie. Or if you have run a marathon and want to sympathize with other folks and their training challenges, you should see it.
Best part of all was seeing Maddy and meeting fellow runner David.
