Spirit of the Marathon - Movie Review

Let's cut to the chase, I'm not impressed.  I thought that the Ironman broadcasts on TV were much better and more inspirational.

However, I do have to say that the original score music was good.  And the peak behind into the training of elite marathoners was also interesting.

The movie is a documentary following several runners, from the average person to the elite, who ran the Chicago Marathon. It takes the viewers through the training and see the dedication that each runner had. What stood out to me is that the average runner had as much dedication as the elite, but the elite are just more talented and can run much faster.

If you are into marathoning, then the movie is worth a view.  If you are into inspirational stories, then look elsewhere.
