Monday Movies ~ Run Like the Wind!

Feature Presentation...

The Boston Marathon, the oldest annually contested marathon in the world, the Bumbles inform us, is happening for the 115th time today, Monday April 18th! Although Molly and Andy have run in their share of races, neither has ever run the marathon or plans to run it. But they wish all the best to the people they know who are running in the Boston Marathon this year. I do, too: Good luck to the runners! Many movies feature runners, running scenes and races. Share on your blog films that make your feet tired just watching, linking your post back to The Bumbles Blog. If you don't have a blog, list your choices in the comment section of The Bumbles Movie post!

Marathon Man (1976)

Gallipoli (1981)

Run Lola Run (1998)


  1. I've got to wonder just how many movies there are about running, but I am sure there are plenty that I just don't know about! I always say I am going to try to watch more movies, but never seem to get the time, as I always have my nose stuck in a book! Great picks for this one!

  2. Marathon Man is a great choice! "Is it safe?"

  3. I've never seen any of those movies. Forrest Gump is the first movie that popped into my head.

  4. But which of these would be your favorite? I haven't seen them other than Chariots and that was a long time ago.

  5. They had a decent day for the Boston Marathon this year.

    BTW...Amy, I enjoyed the Ordinary Thunderstorms teaser. This is one book I have but haven't read yet, so I'll be anxious for your review.

  6. I haven't seen any of these! I know I've seen parts of Chariots of Fire, but I'm not sure if I've ever seen the whole thing.
