The Spirit of the Marathon

Tonight, Laurel came over for some leftovers:

and some Spirit of the Marathon watching. Laurel and I have been talking for months about watching this movie, and we finally did.

If you’re not familiar with the movie, it follows six runners (Deena Kastor, Daniel Njenga, a Kenyan marathoner and four “regular people”) as they prepare for the Chicago Marathon. It was great to see the training and race from the perspective of elite athletes, crazy-fast-Boston-qualifying-like Laurel fast runners, a runner that looked about my speed and runners who were finishing in 6+ hours and just happy to finish.

Every scene that panned over the course freaked me out a bit, but I’m so excited to run this damn race!
