Storyline

Hilarious, outgoing and always up for a good time, New Yorker Brittany Forgleris everybody's best friend -- except maybe her own. At 27, her hard-partying ways, chronic underemployment and toxic relationships are catching up with her, but when she stops by a new doctor's office to try to score some Adderall, she gets slapped with a prescription she never wanted: Get healthy. Too broke for a gym and too proud to ask for help, Brit is at a loss, until her seemingly together neighbor Catherine pushes her to lace up her Converse sneakers and run one sweaty block. The next day, she runs two. And soon, after finishing her first mile, she sets an almost unthinkable goal: running in the New York City Marathon.

Tried so hard to love it
19 December 2019 | by jessicadavis-25909See all my reviews

Main character isnt likable, let's face it . The concept was great, inspiring even , supporting cast was stellar . BUT ,damn, I tried three times to finish it and each time had to shut it off due to Brittanys unabashed cruelty to all the incredibly wonderful and supportive people in her life. . Makes me wonder if there's not some covert agenda to normalize toxic behaviors and people because I SURE DO happen to see this trend quite a lot . Let's not make sociopathy the norm people , were all better than that . Concept and supporting cast is aces but the protagonist is straight garbage .
