Hood to Coast Movie

Seeing the Hood to Coast movie tonight makes me excited to run my next Ragnar race.   The movie followed 4 teams ranging from newbies to experienced and told personal stories of the runners.

The opening scene was a runner at night and ZOOOOMMMMMM, another runner zipped by like she was standing still.  If you've run a relay, or any race for that matter, you know the feeling of being passed when you're so dang tired.  Been there, done that.  I had to laugh.

It was a great movie that captured the essence of what a relay is about. There were many laughs, understanding of the exhaustion through the middle of the night and the drive to keep going.  In case you have the opportunity to see the movie, I won't get into the stories and characters and let you discover them for yourself when you see the movie.  While it was only a one night showing,  if you get a chance to see the movie jump on the opportunity.

My Rating is Five out of Five running shoes
Happy Running!

I'm bummed that I missed this - I just saw this morning that it was showing all over Philadelphia last night! New fodder for the nextflix queue, I guess.

Gotta love Netflix for all those times I don't make it to the theater. My queue will provide me with months of entertainment.

The movie wasn't one of my fav's, but it did have a lot of funny moments, especially the graphics art team of new runners!

I hope they show the movie in more theaters so I don't have to wait for the DVD.
