Ultramarathon Man

Steve had set me up to receive Ultramarathon Man: 50 Marathons, 50 States, 50 Days through Netflix while he was out of town. After seeing J.B. Benna's earlier documentary "The Runner" I thought this one might be good too. I was not a lover or hater of Dean before watching, and I'm neither one after. The set up was quite irritating though. It would randomly stop to give stats from each marathon. At first, interesting, but after the 12th pause, I tried to get it to just play through. For some reason, it wouldn't change the set up, so I just gave up watching it. Maybe if they'd been running beautiful trails...

I got that movie to watch, hoping for some type of motivation. Not so much. It sounds more impressive than it really is.

Sorry you are having trouble. You have to watch the DVD in normal mode. It sounds like you were watching in with the statistics mode turned on. Then it pauses at each state and gives you stats. I hope this helps. Thanks for the support.

Hi JB - thanks for stopping by! I've tried to switch it to normal mode a couple times, but it still goes bac to the stats. Any tricks or maybe it's my DVD player?

Also again - I LOVED and finally bought for myself "The Runner."
