Great documentary here. If you are a sociable runner and enjoy running tales to give a bit of inspiration, this is a 5 star.

This is an interesting documentary/docudrama looking at the challenges and successes of a few women engaged in the lifestyle and the art of running/marathon training. As a marathoner myself I enjoyed each of the runners' stories and felt inspired to run immediately after (although it doesn't take much to make me feel this way).

It is a movie sociable runners will enjoy. It is a great contribution to the videos out there on running and would fit well into your collection especially if you have others like:

Prefontaine
Running Brave
Run for Your Life
Hood To Coast 2-Disc Special Edition DVDSpirit of the Marathon
Marathon Challenge

If you own and enjoyed any of the above - I think you will also appreciate this one as well.

It could also be a wonderful course video for Applied Media students as the style and simplicity of the film is one new videograpers and those whom want to produce their own documentaries.

I liked the women in this movie. I liked what they were trying to accomplish. I was rooting for them. That said, I have seen better crafted (produced, shot, edited) documentaries done by 6th graders. The production value was seriously atrocious, and I would venture to say, maybe the worst I've ever seen. Would I recommend watching it? Yes, I think so. But only if you can overlook the homespun, "I did this in my basement as I had time" feel.

I'm a runner and if you're a runner you'll love this piece. It's "running drama" about as best as can be described. Follows a group of runners, their families and coaches on their journey to Olympic trials. Each of the women has a different style and approach to running, as well as their coaches.

Some drama with coach infidelity puts them to the test. This is NOT an instructional video.
Women and masters runners will find this piece very inspiring.

This documentary is an awesome way for a new runner to become motivated and energized through their first workouts. When I did not want to exercise. I watch it. This was well worth watching and worth the time.

But this was not a good movie. Too much talk, not enough running. Seemed kind of home made video -like.

Watched while on the treadmill for a longish run. Great movie. One part made me a little nauseated when the camera was flipping around, but overall excellent, informative and heart-warming

Very inspirational and well made. Follows more than one runner while maintaining a coherent pace. Well worth the rental cost! I'd love to see a sequel.

interesting view into the goals of a handful of incredible athletes from arizona. We're not sure why these women were chosen per se, out of the thousands of other equally incredible athletes who have overcome equally challenging odds, but we're engrossed in their effort to succeed nonetheless. In hindsight its strange that we never got into the training... at all. and we never REALLY got into the personal lives of any of them. I give it four stars cause only three minutes after the movie and I'm wondering what I actually saw. These are real people reaching for incredible goals and you kinda, just a little bit, get to go on 1/2 of the emotional roller coaster with them, maybe a 1/4 of the training with them, and a 1/4 of the races with them. it sounds bland as a write but I was captivated till the end. I chalk it up to runner's envy. Ill never reach their level of success and its always great to see humans reach so far. thanks for the documentary 26 TWO PRODUCTIONS. Time to make another, even better one! :)
