"Spirit of the Marathon" Screenings Jan. 24th

I don't know how I missed this, but the movie "Spirit of the Marathon" is being screened in a number of cities in the U.S. tonight, January 24th. I've never heard of it before... wonder how I missed hearing of it?

"Spirit of the Marathon" sounds like a very interesting movie, following several people of very different backgrounds as they prepare to run in the Chicago marathon. There are elite athletes like Deena Kastor (Deena Drossin, before she got married), as well as some first-time marathoners and a man in his seventies.

This one-night-only screening sounds like an odd idea, although maybe it's a way to get some publicity before a DVD release. An article in the Los Angeles Times says there will be an encore screening of "Spirit of the Marathon" on February 21st.
