This movie is awesome. It had moments that made you laugh, made you cry and made you shake your head - with the "I know exactly what that person is feeling" moments.
The editing was well done and the music was great. I would highly recommend it to anyone. I think what I liked most about it, was that it wasn't "acting." There was not one moment in the movie where I felt that the camera crew prompted a person to say something so that it would look good on film. No directional persuasion, of sorts. The reactions, the moments caught are real. Of real people. And, I think that's what makes this film so good.
Definitely give it 9 stars out of 10. Would have liked to see a little more of the runners being followed throughout the course than the interviews/ van scenes.
While traveling to Oregon seems like fun, Texas has it's own relay, the Texas Independence Relay, which takes place in March. This is a 40-leg, 203-mile run. The little video below is cheesy funny. Sung to "Don't Stop Exchangin'" it's a musical montage of different teams and the course.
A group of folks from my work have done this the last few years and looks like a lot of fun, but with a little one at home and tri training, it hasn't worked out to be a part of it. Maybe, one day.
