Critic Reviews for The Spirit of the Marathon
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.
Audience Reviews for The Spirit of the Marathon
It was okay ... I think I expected to like it much more and was disappointed because I didn't "love" it. However, it did inspire me to sign up for a marathon next year, no joke!
