Fit Friday Finds: Spirit of the Marathon


What a week it’s been! As you may have noticed, I’ve been pretty M.I.A. all week — unfortunately, I woke up last Friday with a little sore throat that ended up in a full-blown respiratory infection 😦 It definitely hasn’t been a fun week, but I finally got back to work today and (fingers crossed) things are looking up! I’m praying for full healing by the end of the weekend.

I’m pumped to check back in with all of you, and I’m bringing back an old favorite: Fit Friday Finds!

Fit Friday


My husband and I have been long-time fans of Netflix, but I always just used it to waste time catch up on my favorite TV shows — I never knew about the wealth of movies and documentaries hidden in that little app!

After seeing everyone talk about Spirit of the Marathon 2 a few weeks ago, I found out that you can watch “Spirit of the Marathon” on Netflix. It took me about 0.9 seconds to find it and push play!

Spirit of the Marathon follows six runners taking on the Chicago Marathon. Some are elites; others are running their very first marathon. The documentary chronicles their training, race day, and all of the ups and downs that goes with it!

Whether you’re a veteran marathon, contemplating your first 26.2, or just an avid part of the running community, this is a must-watch! It’s so inspirational, and after completing my first marathon, I could identify with all of the emotions the runners displayed and talked about throughout the film.

Out here on the East Coast, it’s a pretty rainy Friday, so this may be the perfect thing to put in your Netflix queue for the evening! May I suggest enjoying it alongside a yummy pizza, like a gluten-free almond flour pizza or a balsamic glazed white pizza?
