I enjoyed this movie. It focuses on a couple of elites (Deena and Daniel Njenga) and several others doing the 2005 Chicago Marathon. Unfortunately, the “several others” do not include serious, semi-fast folks. Much of the movie is about marathoning generally and race prep. The highlight is when it gets to the race itself, and it made me wonder how I was able to finish one of these.

The soundtrack by Jeff Beal, which you can get from iTunes, is great. Good for an MP3 player while running.
