>Hood to Coast

>

I saw a fantastic documentary last night.
I hadn’t even heard of this film until a friend of mine said she was going. It was showing for only one night too. SOOO glad I jumped on board. 
Here is the description of the film:
 

HOOD TO COAST follows four unlikely teams on their epic journey to conquer the world’s largest relay race. The film captures the love, dedication, and insanity of the every day runner as well as the excitement, pain, and humor of the unprepared first timer. Their stories are reminders that no matter who you are, you can push yourself beyond where you thought your limits were.

 Each year 1,000 teams (12,000 runners) in 2,000 vans cover 197 grueling miles as a relay, putting themselves through an arduous physical journey that as an individual would be impossible.

 Some run to test their personal limits, some to overcome personal obstacles, and others leap in blindly looking for a way to shake up a complacent life. As we follow four teams from their preparations through the big day, we realize that winning isn’t everything in a film that takes a celebratory look at personal motivation and attempting the extraordinary.

If you get a chance to see this film, DO IT!

  1. >So jealous you got to see this! I really need to get my hands on a copy. I ran the race a few years ago and it is still one of the hardest and most awesome things I've ever done.
