Life Changing
14 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie was inspiring, touching, funny, and moving on so many different levels. For the experienced runners, to the beginner runners, to the people who have not yet begun to run, it touches all and makes everyone realize how important it is to have passion and purpose in your life. It was interesting to watch how Dean Karnazes tries to cope with so many different variables that came along with running 50 in 50, his family, his new found stature, time constraints, the safety of the other runners, and of course the effects on his body of actually running 50 marathons in 50 days in 50 different states.

If this movie is released again or becomes available on DVD, it is a must see.
