The sweeping shots of stunning Chicago and chill inducing music make this an especially entertaining and inspiring movie. Whether you're a long time marathoner or a couch potato, you will find yourself identifying with at least one of the featured runners. You may even find that you're lacing up those running shoes and heading out yourself after watching!!
And you get to experience one of the great marathons - the Chicago Marathon held every year in October.
Not only will I watch this dvd over and over again. I'm going to run in the Chicago Marathon too. It's that insprirational.
While I enjoyed the documentary, and, in no way want to diminish it, I think I expected something different. I thought I would see more elite runners and clips of epic marathon moments.
The DVD basically highlights 5 runners
and the emotional highs and lows that they go through as they each train for and run the marathon for different personal reasons. While you come to appreciate each one's hard work and struggle, it was not exactly what I was expecting in the way of personal inspiration for myself. Perhaps it was the way the movie was made - it didn't stay on one person for long before they would cut to a different runner. It went back and forth a lot and I felt like I couldn't really get a grasp on anyone.
One of the best scenes for me was the sweeping shot of the starting line at the Chicago Marathon. Approx. 40,000 runners all lined up waiting to start appeared to go on forever! That shot was spectacular. I got very emotional seeing that.
All in all, a good, informative documentary. I wish there were more docs made on running.

I didn't get a real sense of the work runners were putting into it, or what the impact was on family. Family members often were left at the edge of the picture. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Sue D
