No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
A docu that makes pounding the pavement appear utterly uplifting.
A symphony of snapping sinews and pumping thighs... Enthusiastically directed by Jon Dunham.
Even if you've never run for anything but a bus, you'll likely get swept up in this movie's inspiring journey of physical endurance and personal achievement.
In its more tranquil stretches, Spirit of the Marathon might be mistaken for a feature-length sneaker advertisement, but if you're looking for inspiration, you could do worse.
Surely a special treat for Chicagoans and marathoners alike, especially for how it provides a human face for one of the city's major annual highlights.
Captures the preparation and, in an understandably restricted way, the race of the film's participants. And it's really moving.

Like the majority of its subjects, this inspiring doc may not be able to hang with the big girls and boys at the front of the box office pack, but it looks to have the legs to last in the right theatres -- perhaps especially so during the Olympics.
