5.0 out of 5 stars 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiration Nov. 12 2011

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars 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.

3.0 out of 5 stars My Run Sept. 8 2013
By M. Reynard - Published on Amazon.com
This is a movie with great subject matter and no so great execution. While I was deeply enthralled in the story, I wasn't as pleased with the way it was presented and it made it hard to approach and easy to get up and ignore.

Terry Hitchcock was your average guy. He had a wife, three kids, and a successful job. But then after his wife develops breast cancer and dies, he becomes a single parent without a job. He does his best at raising them and at the age of 56 realizes that he needs to do something to help other single parents out there. So he decides to run from MN to Atlanta for the Olympics. And he's going to do it at a marathon distance each day. All translated, that's 75 marathons in 75 days.

Terry is an admirable guy. He's old, a little beaten up, yet still tries to push himself to his limits. It makes me feel a little guilty for not running today because of severe sunburn. I feel like a wimp. But having a cause to run for usually helps and Terry had one that was near and dear to his heart. His children we don't see as much of, except for the one that sticks with him through his whole run. But the movie was mostly about Terry, and not the people around him.

I think that a movie about running has the potential to be interesting or boring depending on how it is presented. This one was an interview documentary and it just didn't bring that excitement and sense of fulfillment that another style could have brought. We see Terry running a bit, but the majority was of people talking about him and his struggles. That has his place, but considering he was running for single parents, I expected to find out a little more about what he experienced as a single parent if they were going to do interviews. But that was a very small part of the movie so I didn't feel as if I realized why he was running for that cause.

The actually film itself was split between the modern day interviews and the footage that was shot during Terry's run. I found the older footage more interesting, even if it was of poor quality because of the time it was shot. It actually showed what was going on though, rather than someone just talking about it. With interviews, it was more like reading a book, which I would have rather done for that part of the story. When it comes to a movie, I'd rather actually watch something happening. There also were odd bursts of music, that while they were good songs, they were actually kind of scary because they were so unexpected. Loud and just out there at random points, they made the movie a bit disjointed. And Billy Bob Thorn narrating? Since there was interviews going on I wasn't sure what they needed a narrator or why Terry just didn't narrate.

I think that what Terry did was fantastic. It's definitely an admirable feat of human endurance. I just wish that the movie would have showcased it a little better.

5.0 out of 5 stars 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.
