    First off, does anyone else agree that Chariots of Fire sucked?

    I love the Long Green Line and Spirit of the Marathon, although with the latter, it might not be for an xc/ track runner

    Thanks but no thanks. Every time I download a bit torrent I get a virus. I'll just look for it next time I'm at the movie store or I'll ask a friend with nexfilx.

    I like Indulgence: 1000 Miles Under the Colorado Sky. It is about an ultra runner and shows beautiful mountain scenery.

    Trailer for the movie on Youtube
