Spirit of the Marathon

"Sometimes the moments that challenge us the most, define us..."

5 minutes into this movie, I teared up twice! We recently got a Netflix subscription and I LOVE IT! After searching for movies, I saw that Netflix has this movie available for immediate streaming to our TV! Yay! I had heard of "Spirit of the Marathon" but had never watched it. Now, since I'm running my first marathon, I decided I needed see this movie.

"When you cross that finish line, no matter how slow or how fast, it will change your life FOREVER."

Jon Dunham and Mark Jonathan Harris strive to create the definitive feature-length marathon film by focusing on the unique stories of five runners competing in the famed Chicago Marathon. Filmed on four continents, the documentary focuses on the remarkable perseverance and personal triumphs experienced by Boston runner Ryan Bradley, first-time marathoner Leah Caille, 2004 Olympic bronze medalist Deena Kastor, four-time marathoner Jerry Meyers, and world-class marathoner Daniel Njenga as they attempt to endure the grueling 26-mile event that demands nothing less than complete focus and dedication. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

If you are running a Marathon or even if you are a runner who wants to run a Marathon one day, I recommend this movie.

Guess what else? I finally registered for the 2011 WDW Full Marathon! I'm really nervous but I'm going to take it slow and I know it will be fine!

Can't wait!!! Only thing I'm not looking forward to are the 18 and 21 mile training runs our coach has planned! lol

I also started a food journal last week so I could keep up with how many calories I'm eating. It also helps me to make BETTER calorie choices, that way I'm not overdoing it on sweets...cause I loooove sugar!! :0) (This weekend though, I was a really bad girl with what I ate...I'll share pictures later!) lol


  1. Keep meaning to watch that movie on Hulu, but can't seem to find the time. Maybe I'll save it for when I'm needing some inspiration.

    Congrats on signing up for Disney. Only hear GREAT things about that race.

  2. yay for signing up!

  3. You're going to love the Disney marathon! There really is nothing like running through Cinderella's castle. I can't wait to go back for the Princess half in February!
