If you’re struggling through a training week or simply need the boost to get your initial motivation – this piece will help you.
Early this week I just happened to hear of a documentary surrounding marathon running to be shown in a limited one-night release. It sounded like the perfect kick off to the 16 week training plan leading into October’s IMT Des Moines Marathon.
After onvincing the wife to go (she hates movies) and moving the schedule around – we attended the special screening last night.
The movie follows 5-6 runners as they participate in the Athens Marathon as well as their reasons for attempting the monumental task. From elite 2:15 pacers to 5 hour first timers the documentary exposed those reasons we run.
Overall, it was a solid film. I don’t find it any coincidence at the timing and my emergence into the running world. Life is funny that way.
