Happy Tuesday! It’s time for another edition of Tuesday Topics.bThis week’s Tuesday Topic: What are your favorite running movies? You can write about this or any running related blog post. Remember to Link-up with Kim and Zenaida and the bottom of this post!
I have to admit that as I’ve gotten older, I watch movies less. I used to go to the movies almost every weekend years ago but now I probably go to see a new movie once or twice a year. I’m much more of a Netflix/Amazon Video/Redbox rental type of gal, lol. That being said, there are a few running movies that I love.
This is my favorite movie of all time. I’ve lost count how many times I have watched it. When I was in Chicago a few years ago I went to the Navy Pier and they have a Bubba Gump restaurant there. The waiter asked me 10 trivia questions about the movie and I answered them all correctly. I guess you could say I’m a superfine of the movie, lol.
Okay, so technically this isn’t a “running” movie, but one of the big stories within the movie is how Forrest Gump ran across the country. That whole storyline is all about perseverance which is one theme I think everyone love.
The Human Race
I watched this movie earlier this year and really enjoyed it. It’s a documentary that focuses on six runners, all over the age of 50, that are pursuing their running dreams, including training for huge races.
Spirit of the Marathon
This movie chronicles various runners journeys to the Chicago Marathon. The runners ranged from newbies to seasoned runners so it was nice to see how each journey was different. Of course I really related to this movie since it was all about the Chicago Marathon (I watched it for the first time before I ran the race in 2017).
From Fat to Finish Line
While I don’t like the title of this movie, I’m a huge fan of all the inspirational stories featured in the film. And as someone that wants to ultimately run a Ragnar race, this film really spoke to me.
Tell me: What are your favorite running movies?
