Happy Tuesday! I hope everyone had a great weekend!
This week’s Tuesday Topic: What are your favorite running movies? You can write about this topic or feel free to post any running related blog post. Remember to Link-up with Kim and Zenaida! Visit at least two of the other linked posts – the more the merrier! Remember to come back for later linkers!
In no specific order, here are mine:
• Spirit of the Marathon – I love this movie! OK, so this one of my favorites. 🙂 This movie follows the journey of 6 runners (with two of them being elite runners) that are training for the 2005 Chicago Marathon.
• Chariots of Fire – I remember hearing about this movie when I was a kid but I didn’t watch it till about 3 years ago. I got chills watching it.
• The Barkley Marathon – It is an ultramarathon that takes place in Tennessee. The course is 100 miles and only 40 runners are accepted each year to run the race. The time limit is 60 hours and to date 15 people have completed it in that time frame (one runner has finished it twice and another runner has finished it 3 times).
• McFarland, USA – It is based on a true story of a cross country team from a Latino high school in California. With the coach’s help, the team wins the state championship.
