Documentary Worth Watching: Marathon Challenge

Have you ever felt like you could never run a marathon because it was too hard, long or just impossible due to some “bad genes” passed on from your parents? Well, Nova looks at turning some reasonably fit, regular people into Boston Marathon runners in under a year.

This documentary might inspire you to work towards your own fitness goal, or remind you to stay on track with your New Years resolutions. I hope you’ll all find it interesting.

Details: Every year thousands of athletes from across the globe flock to Boston to run the city’s marathon, known worldwide as the ultimate test of stamina and endurance. But how do you run 26 miles if you have trouble making it around the block? With good coaching, discipline, and lots of group support, as NOVA shows when it follows 13 sedentary people through a nine-month regimen designed to prepare them for the grueling Boston Marathon.
