Marathon Challenge Presented by NOVA

Exciting news, I found this in my mail box today!! sometimes its not all spam!!! from the words of the request Kate of Nova.

Here's the preview on YouTube "Marathon Challenge" October 30th 8:00pm Most PBS stations



"In cooperation with the Boston Athletic Association and Tufts University, NOVA was granted unprecedented access to the Boston Marathon course. In the summer of 2006, we began following 13 hopeful novices as they took the first step toward completing the 26.2-mile race in April 2007. The participants come from diverse backgrounds - a young woman running in memory of her mother, who died in a tragic car accident; a working single mom; even a former NFL linebacker. The one unifying element is that none of them is currently a runner. Over the nine-month training period, exercise and nutrition scientists and doctors at Tufts University use sophisticated technology to monitor the physical transformations that the participants have undergone. The experience demands a transformation of mind and body, and NOVA cameras are there, following every step of the way. Who was able to finish the race and what type of changes did the runners experience? Your readers will have to tune in to find out.

"Marathon Challenge" will premiere Tuesday, October 30 at 8:00 pm on most PBS stations. Attached is a detailed press release about the show. For more information you can go to www.pbs.org/nova/marathon. You can also view a short promo of the show on Youtube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oHuYNb5Rnxg."

Best wishes,

I just looked at your sidebar and lost your running schedule. When's the next marathon?
My neighborhood friend ran Yonkers this weekend and I am sure he was disappointed he only got 5th in his age group. I think last year he won!

Thanks for the heads up! I'll have to look out for that. I wonder if they'll make it available on DVD once it's aired.

I thought this was an interesting way to target a niche market. One-on-One marketing.
