Have you heard about Spirit of the Marathon movie?
Well, if you haven't... You should definitely check it out! Worth watching the movie!
Well, Shanaz and I were lucky enough to meet the producer, director and one of the cast runners at the expo last month... These people are so amazing at what they do, capturing the moments of the beautiful sport (I'm biased like that :P)
And guess what?! We're featured in their latest e-mail newsletter :)

At the BOA Chicago Marathon...
Hello Spirit of the Marathon friends!
Our amazing director-producer team, Jon and Gwendolen, just wrapped up an incredible time at the BOA Chicago Marathon and were thrilled that so many of you came by our booth to say "Hi" (and pick up a SOTM running tech shirt)! They loved hearing your stories about how Spirit of the Marathon has played an integral role in your running journey and continue to remember the inspiring conversations that they shared with many of you. One story, in particular, left producer Gwendolen in tears as she recounted the group of women who were running the marathon for their friend, Linda, who couldn't join them because she was undergoing cancer treatments. They had even designed a Flat Stanley with Linda's picture on it and were going to take turns carrying it while running the marathon--thus giving Linda a chance to run the marathon in spirit. Such were the stories of endurance, determination, anticipation, and comraderie.
Shout out to Natascia!
Ilyanna & Shanaz came all the way from Malaysia! We love that Spirit of the Marathon has fans from all over the world!
Interviews with Dick Beardsley, Hal Higdon, Paula Radcliffe, and John Bingham!
In addition to the time that they spent at the Expo, Jon and Gwendolen also managed to sit down and film interviews for Spirit of the Marathon II! (Perhaps you might recognize names like Dick Beardsley, Hal Higdon, Paula Radcliffe, and John Bingham?!) Not only can you anticipate some great interviews in the upcoming Spirit of the Marathon II, "Like" us on Facebook to get a sneak peek into producer Gwendolen's notes from the interviews!
