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.

A little different than the first one. More about the actual race.

Must go for a veteran marathon runner or someone training for their 1st marathon.

If you haven't run one, you won't like it. If you have, you will get it and LOVE it. There are high points and low points and everything in between. It will show you what it's like to run in a foreign country. There are subtitles for the parts with non english speaking people (which I found annoying... you can't watch the action and read at the same time). All in all, it was a good movie.
