That's my one line review of Spirit of the Marathon. The theatre we were at was packed with runners (or runners' friends). JellyP and I went and I saw Lee, who's running Boston in a few weeks. The documentary was as billed, a one hour and forty four ode (or advertisement, take your pick) to the marathon. I think it appeals to those who follow the elite and also us everyday runners and marathoners... We thought it could use a little bit of editing (maybe losing a character) but it was otherwise tight. Oh yeah, and we got to see Chicago, my first marathon! Once it's out on DVD, it's a definite pump me up addition to my collection.
All this makes me want to run a mar... oh wait, I am. Up early tomorrow for 10 miles with 4x1200.
