The Western States Endurance Run winds 100 miles over the Sierra Nevada Mountains along an old gold miner's path. Racers get one day to finish. No stopping. No sleeping. Just a pair of trail running shoes and the ability to ignore an unbelievable amount of pain. At night, it's like running over Mount McKinley, alone, with blinders on. What will you do to remember your next birthday?

Well done documentary Chris, I had no idea how much effort went into accomplishing this. I enjoyed seeing what goes into this race and how Michelle and the other runners accomplished getting to the finish!!
Not great, not even good. The movie overall reminds me of something a high schooler would submit in their cinematography class. The film maker clearly has zero understanding of the ultra running community. Also love the cigarette smoking - nice touch.
ultra poor documentary. 1st 10 clues as such came in the first 10 minutes. "yeah maannnn....we gotta show em puking cuz this is the hardest thing everrrrr". how about this? "....and the race runs thru old pauite indian grounds...." majority of it runs thru a ski hill. most any race anywhere runs thru old indian grounds. what a crap movie.
Well done Michelle...!! It's wonderful to watch real-life stories of people who conquer seemingly insurmountable odds with nothing more than raw guts, determination and courage. It helps inspire and show others what may be possible in their own lives, with just a little bit of resolve. I documentary well worth your time...
As a runner, Michelle has ten times the will power I have. One very tough, gritty gal. I was somewhat shocked to see that she indulges in cigarettes. But I just chuckled, watching her smoke and joke about never being a quitter. Even heroines have their weaknesses. On the plus side, she's got a great sense of humor.
