    after races I always had a banana… and some kind of gatorade + protein drink too…

    that sucks you didn’t get tickets – it was a good movie.

    1. Lisa Eirene

      You saw it already? Well glad to hear it was good! I’m hoping they release it on more days here in Portland. It would make sense to.

  2. Kristina @ spabettie

    HA!! my “smart” phone autocorrected, I obviously will be seeing the movie tonight!! 🙂 (unless I’m just predicting a good movie)

    anyway, just wanted to let you know – the movie isn’t sold out, my friend bought tickets about an hour ago so she can come with us tonight :

      Yeah they had the expensive tickets left when I checked last week. I’m just not gonna pay $50+ to see a documentary. 😉 I’d rather pay that for a concert. But thanks for the info!

    I’m going to have to bookmarkt his post or print it out. Excellent advice and I’ll use it as I plan to do my first half this year.

    I am going to try to find that movie now. Thanks for bringing it to my (our) attention.

    1. Lisa Eirene

      Good luck on your first Half!

      The movie is a documentary out today only in selected theatres. My hope is that they release it in theatres for more than one day soon…

    This is great, as I’m gearing up to do my first marathon. I’ve run high milage weeks(around 50 miles), but never more than 16 miles at once. Since I can’t eat gluten, most convenient grains aren’t an option so I choose fruit smoothies and fatty nuts right after workouts.

    1. Lisa Eirene

      Hey Evan, that’s awesome! When is your first marathon?

      The most miles I’ve ever done at one time was about 8. I was going to go into training for 13.1 but then the injury happened. I wondered how people allergic to wheat and gluten carb load…

    Just saw the movie in Houston. WOW! You ran that? I loved the movie and it made me want to do something I never thought I would ever want to do. Thanks so much for mentioning it on your blog.

    1. Lisa Eirene

      Glad you liked the movie! Yep! I ran it! Check out my “Best of” page for the recaps.

    and I couldnt get a sitter last night 🙂

    I saw the movie at Lloyd Center last night and thought it was great! I wish HTC was next week and not in August, it energized me that much. I thought they did a great job capturing all aspects of the event. I’ve run 7 HTCs and will run my 8th in August; it is a wonderful event. It isn’t just about running, it is so much more.

    I encourage everyone to do a relay one time in their running careers; you won’t regret it.

    Lisa, I hope that you will consider another relay in the future.

    1. Lisa Eirene

      Hey Kathy, I think my sights are set on a Half marathon but I’d do a shorter, smaller relay race in the future perhaps.
