This movie was emotional for me. I tried to run my first marathon several years ago and quit at mile marker 20. Running has never quite been the same for me. Maybe I am ready to try again.

I thought this was also a really realistic portrait of the potential for obsessive behavior that comes with training and changing diet.

I really enjoyed the hell out of that movie. It's both realistic (ish) and inspirational.

I really didn't like it; I really didn't like her and the way she treated her boyfriend and didn't feel like her end "redemption" was at all justified.
