“But I’ve already seen it?” you say. Did you see it at a 1950’s style movie theater?
I didn’t think so. Spirit of the Marathon is being played at the Riverview Theater in South Minneapolis.
We saw the movie when it first came out this winter and I enjoyed it. My wife liked it too, but not as much as me!
To refresh your memory a bit, here is an excerpt from the website about the movie
[A] first ever non-fiction feature film to capture the drama and essence of the famed 26.2 mile running event. Filmed on four continents, the production brings together a diverse cast of amateur athletes and marathon luminaries. As six unique stories unfold, each runner prepares for and ultimately faces the challenge of the Chicago Marathon. More than a sports program, Spirit of the Marathon is an inspirational journey of perseverance and personal triumph; a spectacle that will be embraced by runners and non-runners alike.
Along with citizen athletes, the movie features Deanna Kastor and Daniel Njenga.
A DVD with the movie and other goodies will be available after October 7. If you order now you can get an autographed copy of the DVD. Visit the store to find out more information. While there you can also purchase a variety of other paraphenila.
