The Spirit of the Marathon (2007)

From NetFlix:
Six runners from vastly different backgrounds train for the 26.2 miles of glory that comprise the famed Chicago Marathon. Along the way, filmmaker John Dunham provides an informative account at the centuries-old race. Vintage film clips and thoughtful interviews fill out this heartfelt portrait, which also includes appearances by legendary runners such as Dick Beardsley, Paula Radcliffe, Bill Rodgers, Toshihiko Seko and Grete Waitz. Go to the NetFlix entry and play the Preview. 2007 102 minutes.

This is a fine documentary with famous and unknown runners. It is very inspirational. Great for anyone who wants to fun a marathon. Deserves to be seen and seen again.
