My Run -- Indiewood Pictures in Association with Destiny Pictures presents the award-winning MY RUN, the inspirational documentary of Terry Hitchcock, narrated by Academy Award winner Billy Bob Thornton. 

After tragically losing his wife to breast cancer and struggling to raise three young children on his own, real life super hero and modern day Forrest Gump, Terry Hitchcock seized on an idea. He wanted to accomplish the impossible: run 75 consecutive marathons in 75 consecutive days to bring attention to the incredibly difficult lives of single-parent families. MY RUN is more than a film about a guy running multiple marathons; it’s a film about the daily marathons we all run in life.

My Run... Beautiful, 3 December 2009
Author: gammy189-1 from United States

Recently a friend of mine gave me something he had written and challenged me "I dare you not to cry at the end." At the time I thought it was a bit of a silly and maybe just a tad presumptuous of a challenge. But I find myself, while thinking about this film, wanting to invoke the same challenge (goes to show me I guess).

And the thing is not that this film is so sad or heartbreaking at the end that you can't help but weep. Quite the contrary. Though of course it has it's sad and really heartbreaking elements, for me "My Run" really turned out to be a story about hope, about human challenges, and about how we can really achieve almost the most impossible things just by making committing our minds and mostly our hearts to it. Maybe I weeped at the end because it put my daily excuses of why I can't do this or that to shame. Of course i am kidding. But, I did weep at the end, and most unexpectedly, and mostly because I had just seen one of the most touching stories I had seen in a long time about the resilience and strength of the human heart.

So I don't mean to be lugubrious in my words. But the point I am trying to make, in case i haven't said it many times over :-), is that I loved this film. And if you ever get the chance to see it...do!!!

(for confidentiality purposes and to protect the innocent, I won't stay weather I did cry at the end of my friends project :-)... Cheers
