2.0 out of 5 stars had promise, but man was it poorly produced October 31, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars If a sociable runner December 7, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

It is probably not a movie for non-runners, or more specifically for folks not looking for inspirational tales from athletes. It could be, but I just want to point out that this is not a Hollywood blockbuster here. BUT - I need to stress again, if a runner the rating will probably be very high.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good documentary for the running geek August 1, 2013
By Halo
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
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.

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

5.0 out of 5 stars MOTIVATING!!!!! February 6, 2013
By Kat
Format:Amazon Instant Video
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.

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars I like running and this is about running June 23, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
If you watch this you will fell like you sat near the front runners before and after they ran at a moderate to elite level. The filming is something you could probably do yourself with a couple hours training. It has some value but if you are wanting to learn how they train in any detail then you need to look elsewhere. If you want some insights on what it is like then watch this.

This is a good runner's documentary... And there are not many. Watching the runners and hearing their stories of progression and failure alike make for an interesting show. There is a lot of personal information on the runners -- almost too much for me but it still was able to keep my interest because it cut to running frequently enough.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cool running not so much about the personal drama
The running of these determined women are a pleasure to watch, but I wish it had'nt gotten bogged down with the personal marriage issue between runner and the coach.
