Yesterday I ran my fastest ever marathon in 4 hours and 4 minutes so felt as though todays Musical Moments had to be one of the songs I find most inspirational from my running playlist. Obviously Rocky IV is truly incredible as well!
Craig Mitchell is a criminal court judge in Los Angeles and he starts up a running club on Skid Row. Helping homeless people to run international marathons.
A young woman named Brittany who has suddenly realised how overweight and unfit she is decides to make some drastic changes in her life. Giving up alcohol, a better diet and takes up running. This leads to new friends within a running group and the ultimate goal of completing the New York City Marathon.
Three weeks tomorrow I fly out to Chicago, I am going over to do the marathon! I cannot wait as the film from 2002 and the stage show are part of my favourite films and stage musicals.
In the first 25 years of the Barkley Marathons only ten people had managed to finish the brutal race. Based on a failed prison escape, a tiny town in Tennessee hosts the crazy ultra marathon.
You may have noticed the lack of activity on my blog for the past couple of weeks, well that is because I have been preparing (and panicking) to take part in my first marathon. Which has seen me not make it to the cinema as often as usual!
It is going to be my biggest physical and psychological challenge yet. I have completed five half marathons, so this going to be that next incredible step. I am also going to be raising money for the Sunderland and Gateshead Girls Centre of Excellence which you can read more about here –My Story!
