My Run–75 Marathon Documentary

Tonight I met up with some fun runner girls for dinner and a movie!

I got an email from a PR rep for My Run a few weeks back, but it fell off my radar until I realized it was being played super close and some fellow runners were going to see it!

My Run is a documentary about Terry Hitchcock, a man who runs 75 marathons in 75 days – amazing, right?!?!  His goal was to bring attention to single parent households and how those families are affected.image thumb My Run–75 Marathon Documentary

It was a good movie, but not the best running movie I’ve seen. The story starts with a family background and focuses on the struggle of his journey. It’s not super inspiring in terms of getting pumped for a race. Since it doesn’t focus on the details of running or training it would probably be good for anyone, not just runners.

My favorite running movie is still  Spirit of the Marathon. I saw the Hood To Coast movie recently too wlEmoticon smile My Run–75 Marathon Documentary 

Before the movie we had dinner at The Veggie Grill. I don’t think I was a huge fan of what I got last time, but LOVED this salad!

Since I didn’t want veggie steak they gave me extra tempeh on the side.

Then, Pam, SkinnyRunner and Sarah and I hit up the movie. We passed snacks of course, but the pics were way too dark to show.

I’m currently chomping on a handful of PB Puffins and considering going to sleep or watching trash TV… decisions, decisions.

    So fun you guys were able to get together! The movie definitely missed it’s mark, but it was funny to see how far mainstream running has come in 15 years or so. I mean, he was running in a cotton shirt! That was my favorite part, comparing then to now.

    I agree…I was looking forward to a more inspiring movie! It was soo slow at some points but, I was really trying to get into it!! I’ve never seen “spirit of the marathon” but, I’ll have to check it out!! I enjoyed the company of your ladies! We’ll have to do it again sometime!! :)

    HAVE A GREAT FRIDAY!! :)

    Wow 75 marathons total is insane, but in as many days? I don’t think there’s even a word for that! I have never seen any movies, not even the hood to coast movie. But that might be because I’ve seen the vans of the relay runners my entire life. I feel like I’ve already seen it!

    I saw the movie last night too and felt the same way. It was inspirational, but definitely more focused on overcoming personal challenges than on running. I’m still going to think of Terry during my marathon next weekend, though!
