The past three weeks have been CRAZY in a mostly good way. From picking up Ryan Hall working the Capital Challenge race, to NYC for #fitblog and then back home to pack and leave for the Outer Banks for a week. Throw in there all three of my kids getting the norovirus and I would say I have been pretty busy.

I had the grand hopes that I would post every day. I brought my computer excited to share about my adventures, but somewhere along the way I thought to myself – don’t let DOCUMENTING life actually get in the way of LIVING life. I snapped one too many photos and posted more than anyone should to instagram but that was where I left it.

I’m home now, trying to unpack and get back into the swing of things. It feels good to get back on track with running and eating healthy at home, but I’m already missing the beach.

This morning I started my early morning running routine back with an hour run around my town. My garmin seems to be on the fritz and again turned off randomly while fully charged right before I walked out of the house. Looks like I may be switching to my new Timex full time. Even though I wanted to know what my pace was this morning I was reminded that it’s good to run for time every once in awhile. When you don’t know how many miles you are running, you are more likely to run an easy and relaxed pace on an easy run rather than run too fast because you want to fit as many miles into the window of time you have to run, or constantly worry about your pace being too slow. It’s good to learn to run on feel and not worry about pace every day.

You may or may not have heard already but I wanted to share that the Spirit of the Marathon II is coming to select theaters for one night – Wednesday, June 12 at 7:00 p.m. local time.

From their press release:

The road to the finish line of a marathon is paved with individual stories of motivation, determination and triumph. Set against the sweeping backdrop of a 26.2 mile marathon race through the historic streets of Rome, Italy, “Spirit of the Marathon II focuses on seven inspiring individuals whose lives will forever be transformed by the experience. NCM Fathom Events and Competitor Group present this highly anticipated sequel to the 2008 award-winning documentary “Spirit of the Marathon” in select U.S. theaters on Wednesday, June 12 at 7:00 p.m. local time. Audiences will be transported to six countries for an intimate “up close and personal” look into the runners’ lives and the challenges they face – both physical and emotional – on an epic journey where finishing the Rome Marathon is anything but certain. The event also features inspirational interviews with marathon greats Stefano Baldini, Paula Radcliffe, Frank Shorter, Kathrine Switizer and others as they offer perspective and insight into this legendary race and its history. This one-night event will include behind-the-scenes interviews, deleted scenes and memorable outtakes from the filming of the documentary.

Additionally, the film producers—along with NCM Fathom Events and movie theater circuit partners AMC Entertainment Inc., Cinemark Holdings, Inc. and Regal Entertainment Group—will donate a portion of the proceeds from the “Spirit of the Marathon II” event to The One Fund Boston, assisting families affected by the tragic events of the 2013 Boston Marathon on April 15.

  1. I can’t wait to see Spirit of the Marathon II! The first one had me so inspired by the end of it.

  2. I’ve lost count how many times I watched the first one. The movie never gets old to me. I can’t wait to see the second one!!!

  3. Thanks for posting a list of the locations! I would love to be able to see the movie. Hopefully I can make it to one of the 2 places in OKC where it’s showing!

  4. I ran this race last year when they were making the movie! I cannot wait to see it!

  5. I’ll be seeing it in Fredericksburg, VA. Can’t wait!!!

  6. YES! Can’t wait to see it. I have watched the first film too many times… :)

  7. With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into
    any issues of plagorism or copyright violation?
    My website has a lot of unique content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my authorization. Do you know any ways to help stop content from being ripped off? I’d genuinely appreciate it.

  8. Great to “see” you!

  9. Glad to see you’re back! Hope your kids are feeling better! I bet your run felt glorious this morning :)

    If you haven’t heard of Nina Kuscsik before, I suggest you look into her story. While K. Switzer is very famous, Nina did a lot of the “leg work” for women’s inclusion into the marathon, particularly the Olympic marathon. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing Nina and she is the most genuine, down to earth person. She’s featured in Spirit of the Marathon II but many people have never heard of her. :)

  11. I can’t wait to see this movie! I’ve always dreamed of doing the Rome marathon – it’s one of my favorite cities. I’ll be going to the movie in St. Louis next week.

  12. I am going to see this next Wednesday with 2 of my favorite run buddies, but I know many more will be there too :) We’re going to a local Brandon, FL theatre. Ahhh I’m still trying to get back in the swing of things since my May vacation :X

  13. Super disappointed because it isn’t coming to Canada. :( Hopefully it comes later!

  14. ローラーかけるやつだって社員がいなければ素通りだし 黒コンが似合うのは一般人は高校生までアイドルは25くらいまでだな
