A Movie Must See!

So excited to open up my mailbox and see that I received the movie, The Spirit of the Marathon today. Knowing that I had a couple of hours before it was time to be a good wifey and cook dinner, I popped that baby in the dvd player and hit play.

Why was I smiling the entire time I was watching the movie? I caught myself just grinning from ear to ear. At times, too, I was crying in happiness for the runners.

Everything about this movie was inspiring. I loved some of the quotes that some of the runners said. One being, " The challenges you face can sometimes define who you are." So true, yes? It got me thinking of more disciplined I should be. How I should challenge myself even more during times when I just want to be a "wogger." {walker-runner}

I enjoyed seeing an elder man run and run with his daughter. How intimate is that to be able to share an event as challenging as a full marathon with your father? Most of all, how incredible to still be running at his age??? Awesome!!!!

In other news, I signed up for my second 1/2 marathon for the year. I will be participating in the Rock n' Roll Marathon in Las Vegas on December 6th. Woohoo, Vegas here I come!

Hmm... Maybe something I need to look up. Good luck on the Vegas HM. I'd go, but you would have a hard time getting me off the poker tables by start time....

I loved that movie! I watched it when I got my very first running injury and had to stay off my feet. So inspirational, I got very emotional.
