I’m back at it! After finishing my first marathon in Wisconsin and taking a much-needed break, I’ve started training for the Chicago Marathon in October. I’m up to 9 miles for my long run this weekend.
Before I ran Wisconsin, someone had recommended that I watch “Spirit of the Marathon.” I didn’t get to it, but I’m SO glad I did before I started training for Chicago. This documentary follows 5 people (from beginning to elite runners) through their training for the 2005 Chicago Marathon. Here’s an extended trailer that gives you a good taste – if you’ve ran a marathon, you can really relate. If you haven’t ran one, then you’ll be inspired.
You can watch the full film on Hulu or on Netflix. My husband came in at the end when I was cheering for everyone to finish. Enjoy!
