“A Long Way for a Short Run” follows a 12-week Couch to 5K class, a group of individuals making their way from injury, illness, being overweight, or just aging and sedentary, to running a 5K race. It interweaves the amazing stories behind why these individuals are attempting this, for them, challenging program, and draws the viewer into their journeys. The stories of these runners are so striking! These are not reality TV stars, but are normal folks who have reached inside to dig deep and overcome obstacles in life.
The Amazing Stories of Internal Fortitude and Determination!
The stories are so striking, it is difficult to chose what to film! From a person being told she would never walk and yet going to achieve a 1/2 marathon, to another who saw an amazing weight loss with associated health benefits, to an ex-runner with spine and hip issues who manages to get out and walk miles every day. These are not reality TV stars, but are normal folks who have reached inside to dig deep and overcome obstacles in life. As Nancy says: "We have stories to tell too!"
