Giveaway- Tickets for "My Run" Documentary - One night ONLY March 31, 2011

I received a comment from Jessica, marketing consultant for a new inspiration documentary on my favorite subject.  RUNNING!  I have found these documentaries that are only shown only once have always been good and this trailer is no exception. What I like about these documentaries is they are about real people.  Not the elites. Not the super strong. But the ordinary people, like me.


“MY RUN”, is playing ONE NIGHT only in Movie Theaters Nationwide on March 31, 2011. It is narrated by good ole' Academy Award winner Billy Bob Thornton and we  will find MY RUN inspirational, uplifting and exciting, because it embodies and exemplifies the power and resilience of the human
spirit.

They teamed up with Lance Armstrong’s Cancer Foundation LIVESTRONG,
Active.com and Life Time Fitness in the release of MY RUN, where a portion
of the film’s profits will be donated to LIVESTRONG to FIGHT CANCER. It’s
all about being somebody’s hero. “Your film is so important to raising
awareness of so many issues including the power of the human spirit. Mr.
Hitchcock’s vision and story is one I will never forget,” said Doug Ulman
President/CEO of LIVESTRONG. Portions of the proceeds from the movie go to the LIVESTRONG foundation.

The MY RUN Story - After tragically losing his wife to breast cancer and
struggling to raise three young children on his own, real life super hero
and modern day Forrest Gump, Terry Hitchcock seized on an idea. He wanted
to accomplish the impossible: run 75 consecutive marathons in 75
consecutive days to bring attention to the incredibly difficult lives of
single-parent families. He ran in spite of freezing rain and unbearable
heat, in spite of chest pains and bone fractures that wracked his
57-year-old body. He just kept running - each day, every day -
strengthening an unbreakable bond between father and son--- not stopping
until he broke the finish line tape in Atlanta. MY RUN is more than a film
about a guy running multiple marathons; it’s a film about the daily
marathons we all run in life, a theme that’s extremely relevant and
important in this day and time.

I loved Spirit of the Marathon. It is what inspired me to sign up for Chicago in 2008 for my first full! I signed up the morning after I saw the film at the theater.

I haven't watched many movies or documentaries about running, but I do get teary eyed every time I watch the Hawaii Ironman on the sports channel. They turn it into a story behind the race more than who wins...it is very emotional and makes me wish to one day be that amazing!
