A Top-Notch Inspirational Movie for Runners Aug. 6 2011
By M. Mills - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I saw My Run in the theater and enjoyed every last second. As a "regular runner," this movie put running and life in perspective. One of the things I love about running is that learning to overcome the obstacles in the sport builds experience that can be applied to all sorts of other situations in life. Terry's journey showed that lesson over and over. I figured if Terry could do what he did without making any excuses along the way, then I had no excuse not to make my life exactly what I wanted. I would recommend this movie to anyone, runner or not.

Inspiration Nov. 12 2011

This is a story of overcoming obstacles and dealing with grief, of setting goals -- even goals no one thinks are possible -- and then just never giving up.

Get My Run and get inspired! Feb. 11 2012
By W. J. Molinar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
You can't go wrong with this truly inspirational documentary. The story of Terry Hitchcock is mindblowing. Why on earth would a middle aged man with no athletic background chose to run a marathon per day for 75 days and put his body through ultimate torture, at one point breaking both ankles and having a heart attack?!? Because he loved his children. He wanted to raise awareness for single parent children, of which I am one, raised by my mom, and did so in dramatic fashion. This is Forest Gump in real life. An amazing story for anyone.

Kindred spirit July 9 2012
By venetian sumac - Published on Amazon.com
I first put the movie into my queue because I recently started running to train for my first 5K. On the day of the race, I fell down a flight of stairs (before the race began) and broke my ribs, and severely bruised my hip and thigh. I ran the 5K, not knowing the extent of my injuries. Afterwards, people thought that I was crazy for running in this condition, but now I can say, "Not as crazy as Terry Hitchcock". Wow--I could never do what he did. Awesome feat!

It wasn't until I began watching the film that a deeper connection arose. My dad had to finish my raising after my mother died of cancer. So I liked every inch of the film, because I connected with it. I connected with the kids point of view, connected with Terry's grief after he first lost his wife, and it helped me to see that what my dad went through during the grief process can be pretty normal. I mostly connected with his desire to keep his goal.

Would have loved to hear more of the family dynamics, but I understand that the film was focused on the run and raising awareness for the foundations.

Nonrunner to ultrarunner Aug. 8 2012
By Paul A. Mastin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
In this space I have written about the feats of well-known runners like Dean Karnazes, Michael Horton, and Marshall Ulrich. These men are world-class ultramarathoners who have run big miles, setting them apart as ultra-elites. Joining this small group is Terry Hitchcock, whose mega-marathon run is documented in My Run. Unlike those other runners, Hitchcock could scarcely have been considered a runner before he decided he would run a marathon a day for 75 days. But that's exactly what he did, running from Minnesota to Atlanta, arriving in time for the start of the 1996 Olympics.

Hitchcock's wife died of cancer in 1984, leaving him to raise 3 kids on his own. Shortly after she died, he lost his job. A decade later, he decided to draw some attention to the experiences and challenges of single parents, so he came up with his plan to run to Atlanta. Although he had not run marathons before, he found a trainer to help him prepare. He was slow (at one point he said he ran about 8 hours a day), but his endurance held up and he seemed to stay strong.

Besides the painful process of running that far, the other painful part of the film was the dissolution of his team. He started out with a support team in an RV, but they fled, so he was left with only one of his sons to support him for much of the run. They did get some free hotel stays, though. The focus of My Run is more on the runner than the run himself, following his personal journey. Runners who see the film will probably be asking, How did he do that? Karnazes, Horton, and Ulrich are seasoned runners with impressive running resumes. Hitchcock is just a guy. Which is really the message of the film: regular guys can do the seemingly impossible, whether it's running 75 marathons or raising 3 kids on his own.
