Must see for any runner

You will laugh, you will cry, you will be on the edge of your seat to see who makes it the 26.2 miles and who doesn't. You will feel their pain and their joy as they complete their journey. Beautifully filmed in the ancient city of Rome. Can't wait for Spirit of the Marathon III. How about making that one about Boston as a tribute?

Spirit of the Marathon II

I thought it was great. The fact that they showed "regular" runners as well as some elites.... terrific! If you weren't a runner before, you'd want to do a marathon after seeing this. Well done!

Spirit of the marathon II

Loved it, perhaps even more so than the original, although it may be because I have watched the original so many times. I would hope that if you ever do a spirit of the marathon III that one of your participants would be an older woman (60's, 70's). As an older female runner and medical provider, I know how inspiring it is to see other individuals preparing for a running event-of any distance. There is a real need to encourage the older female population to get out and get moving and take responsibility for their health. Thanks for a great production

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.
