    I love 'em all, but that one was actually painful to watch.

    Loves the outdoors

      I'd probably watch most running documentaries, whatever they were on.

       

      TVNZ has screened a documentary here in NZ called "the Golden Mile" which was interesting. It was looking at the influence of Lydiard and also what two elite runners (Snell and Halberg) went through to eventually win gold  at the olympics (a very big deal for our small country). This was the period when Lydiard was on the outer and had to coach his athletes through the fence as he was not allowed into the Olympic areas.

      One day I decided I wanted to become a runner, so I did.

        I love 'em all, but that one was actually painful to watch. 

         

        Why was it painful for you?

        well, apart from the cheesy music Smile

          Just found another one I enjoyed - also about kiwi runners. Some great 70's shorts and hair!

          One day I decided I wanted to become a runner, so I did.

            Isn't "Fire on the Track"  about Steve Prefontaine a good one?  (need to order it someday)


            Cool Jump Suit

              I really enjoyed 'Hood to Coast'.

              So bittersweet
              This tragedy
              Won't ask for absolution;
              This melody
              Inside of me
              Still searches for solution;
              A twist of faith
              A change of heart 
              Cures my infatuation;
              A broken heart 
              Provides the spark 
              For my determination.
