"Spirit of the Marathon" Returns to Boston

April 17th, the inspirational documentary "Spirit of the Marathon" will return to movie theaters in Boston Massachusetts! There will be a back-to-back screening event at 4:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. ET. This will mark the first stop in a 16 city tour. The film will be exhibited the Thursday prior to major running events across the United States

On Sunday April 20th, one of the marathoners in the documentary, Olympic Bronze Medalist Deena Kastor, will compete in the trials hoping to qualify for her third Olympic Team. She said of her experience with the film, "It was a thrill to be a part of ‘Spirit of the Marathon’ and even more exciting to see the essence of this great sport captured so beautifully. It is my greatest hope that millions will relate to this film and that millions more be inspired by it."

If you are in the Boston area, I strongly suggest checking this movie out. And don't feel you need to have a 6 minute mile pace or a marathon under your belt, athletes and non-athletes alike will take something home from this great movie!
