Thanks for letting everyone know about this opportunity, Oliver. Although I missed the chance to see it in the theater, I was thrilled to see on the website you linked to that it was playing again due to "popular demand."
Sport documentaries are some of the most fascinating out there. It was uplifting to see the long list of theaters playing the movie, including two in my state that I am very familiar with: major theaters, not just the smaller theaters that tend to run mostly documentaries and independent films. I'd say the success of "Spirit of the Marathon" is a boost for the genre and, most importantly, for the sport.
