I don’t know about you all, but for me, the perfect date night would be running, foam rolling together, and recovering with some Rocky Road ice cream and a cheese stick…
BUT, unfortunately I am still injured (update coming soon) and so the next perfect thing would be watching a movie about running! If that sounds like the perfect night out to you, you’re in luck!! This week, on Wednesday only, Fathom Events is releasing The Spirit of the Marathon II: Rome in select theaters near you! It’s a one night special event in select theaters nationwide (click here to check for a theater near you).
Here’s a snippet from the official website:
From the filmmakers who brought you the award-winning documentary Spirit of the Marathon comes the highly anticipated sequel: Spirit of the Marathon II.
Featuring the personal journeys of a new cast of seven athletes as they run the iconic streets of Rome, Italy, the film also includes interviews with marathon greats such as Stefano Baldini, Paula Radcliffe, Frank Shorter and many others.
An entirely new running adventure, Spirit of the Marathon II expands on the first film looking further into this legendary event, its significance in people's lives and ultimate impact on society.
I’ll be honest with you, I never saw the first Spirit of the Marathon, but I’ve heard great things and it’s on my wishlist! I have heard that Spirit of the Marathon II was done a little differently than the first one though and have read on a couple blogs from people that got to see a sneak peek that it was truly inspirational! I can’t wait to have a night out and watch it!! If you’d like to watch the official trailer, I’ve embedded it below because that’s what friends do! ;) Enjoy!
