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.

The movie was really good and inspirational. These women are amazing and give me hope. I thought that the music wasn't super great, but overall, this is a good film that I would recommend to runners. To non-runners, not so much. Totally worth it for me though.

The only thing that I did not like/understand was why it was necessary to mention the coach's infidelity to his wife. It detracted from the story and made you take your focus off the runners and their accomplishments.

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.

Not worth spending a cent on. I would suggest to Delalis that this be put on youtube where people can see it for free. Long interviews with nothing but the person sitting there talking. Poor production and sound quality. I still haven't made it through the whole movie and not sure that I ever will. It's probably not worth it.
