Everything I expected

After watching SOM 1 this past weekend this movie was exactly what I expected. I was truly rooting for each runner. There were not any surprises. It was similar to the first one. Except it was Rome. I felt more into the first one, I was cheering for the runners more in the first one. I am not sure why. Mimo was probably my favorite character, and Cliff Scott tore my heart out. Great job and looking forward to 3.

inspiring movie. anyone interested in running, particularly running a marathon, should see this movie. great individual stories of several runners' stories from newbies to veterans to professional runners. the movie goes in depth into the personal lives of the runners. loved it. we saw it in the same theatre that Julie Weiss saw it. Julie is one of the runners featured in the movie. She ran 52 marathons in 52 weeks to spread the word about pancreatic cancer which caused the loss of her father.

I was unprepared for the depth of emotions felt watching this movie! I am a so-so runner, but fascinated by those who commit to and accomplish a marathon. The life stories presented in this movie were deeply touching. Any runner who wants to "get" why people do marathons should see this film.

You will relate...

Arrive early--see the marathon trivia. Then sit back and enjoy an extraordinary and insight into several lives of runners of all abilities and social strata. Beautifully filmed and scored from beginning to end. You will smile, laugh, chuckle, nod your head, and shed some tears--most of all you'll relate to many of the stories told and the commonalities of marathon running. It will re-energize you and make you feel proud to part of the running community. Stay for the mini-doc afterwards--the charitable aspect of running will tug at your core. Five very brilliant stars for this masterpiece.

It is an excellent documentary for those people involved in the world of running, full of great stories and tips, a great photography. Very inspiring for people (like me) who want to reach the goal of running the 26.2 miles.
