Spirit of the Marathon is the best documentary I have ever seen, and I have seen it so many times I can’t count. Plus, I have listened to all or part of it on every run of more than an hour for more than 18 months. So, to learn in the last couple of days that its sequel is going to be coming out in April was fantastic news.
When Dick Beardsley says, “When you cross that finish line — no matter how slow or how fast — it will change your life forever.” it pumps me up and sends chills through me every single time.
The first movie is one of the most inspirational films ever made. In fact, it’s the only movie I have downloaded on my iPad.
So, I can’t wait to see the sequel.
For any Mississippians running in the upcoming Jan. 7 Mississippi Blues Marathon, it is a must see.
