Marathon Challenge

Some friends of mine from my running group were talking about this program the other day.
It's called Marathon Challenge (duh) and its aired on NOVA in 2007. Its about a group that takes 13 people who want to run Boston but don't run at all and see if in 9 months they can go from couch to Marathon.

So of course I had to check it out. I cried at points in it but really is that surprise to anyone? It was just amazing to see the effort and hard work these people put in. Just how important their goal was to them. As I'm getting ready to embark on my first marathon as well its really just so motaivating to watch. Its about 1 hour long but well worth it.

I can't link the video right on here but here is the link (below) to the page with the story and video on it.

Let me know what you think!


  1. I watched it yesterday when you posted it on facebook. Now I want to do a marathon - NOW. Seriously, I was thinking next year wasn't the year, but I'm now debating whether I can work it in with my half-iron somehow...

  2. hahahahaha. I know! These videos are amazing. I'm getting Spirit of the Marathon that Cindy posted the other day from a friend of mine.

  3. Oh my gosh! I'm excited to watch this! When I do, I will let you know what I think!!
