I felt this movie was very inspirational and touching. It showed all the different people that run marathons and the hardships and successes that led them to race day. After watching this movie I felt inspired to get off my butt and go run 2.76 miles at 8:30 at night. :)

HereHere - for some it is a life-changing experience. For others, maybe not. But Spirit of the Marathon gets at the heart of why regular people become a little obsessed with running. The film is great inspiration for aspiring runners.

It is an exaggeration to say that running a marathon will change your life, but there is some cool history and some interesting stories.
