5.0 out of 5 stars Controversy aside this is an amazing film, December 19, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Ultramarathon Man: 50 Marathons - 50 States - 50 Days (DVD)
If you know a runner ask them about Dean Karnazes. Everyone has their opinion about him some see him as a role model some do not. I saw this movie before I ever heard anyone debate about Dean. Even if you are not a fan of Dean this is truly an amazing film. This movie follows Dean as he travels around the country to run 50 marathons in 50 days. Some marathons are recreated on the course they take place on at a later date and some are live. Dean invites runners to come out an join him. Heavy rain, injury (Dean takes a pretty bad spill) and even running into a pole do not stop these determined runners. The first few marathons get more screen time and some marathons are recapped due to time constraints. The experience at each marathon is different and Dean meets some truly inspirational runners at these races. This film is not only inspirational but thought provoking. A must see for any runner epically someone cosidering entering a full marathon or an ultra running event. If you enjoy this move here are a few more you may enjoy Spirit of the Marathon,Running on the Sun,Running the Sahara [ NON-USA FORMAT, PAL, Reg.2 Import - Great Britain ], and The Runner: Extreme UltraRunner David Horton

I really appreciate the time you took to write this review and your suggestions for other similar movies. I am running my first marathon in January - the day before my 53rd birthday) so I immediately bought all of your recommended dvd's. Just watching the trailers for the dvd's were awe-inspiring so I am really looking forward to watching the full length versions! Thanks. Tina (Abita Springs LA)
