From Fat To Finish Line World Premiere In April

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

One film I’m looking forward to seeing this year is From Fat To Finish Line. It’s a documentary about 12 strangers who collectively lost 1,200 pounds (roughly 100 pounds each), became friends via social media, and decided to take on a huge challenge – the 200 mile Ragnar Relay Race.

The film is finally finished and is premiering at the Nashville Film Festival. The first showing is slated for Saturday, April 18 at 7:30 p.m. There’s also a second showing Friday, April 24 at 6:00, kicking off the Nashville Rock n’ Roll Marathon weekend.

Coincidentally, I’m running a 5K race April 18 and can’t make the 12 hr drive for the world premier. Sadly the 24th is out of the running for me too.

If you are in the Nashville area, show the film some love and try to attend. The more we support positive films like this, the more people learn that weight loss, like anything else, is possible.

You can follow From Fat To Finish Line’s Facebook page for release dates and streaming info as it becomes available. You can also check out the website to learn about the runners (scroll over their images to see their awesome transformations).

  1. Dot, thank you so much for sharing the information on our movie. I’m Runner 12, and I was in Nashville for the film premiere. It was an amazing experience, and the audience members in attendance were so supportive.

    We’ll be watching your own race schedule and would love to run with you sometime when our paths cross.


    • John, thanks for writing! I can’t wait to see this film. I’m a newb when it comes to running but I love it (which was a big surprise to me). I really want people to see the film. My weight loss and running (I ran my first 5k over the weekend!) is proof that anything is possible if you make a commitment to yourself. That’s why films like this are so important in helping people understand they can always change their lives for the better.

      Oh, and I’d love to run with you guys! I’m sure I’d be last, but I’d give it my all!

      • Congrats on the first 5K. Funny, we all decided to run the Shade Tree Trot in Nashville Saturday morning, and we had such a good time. No one cared about their time or their pace, and we just enjoyed the miles and the time together.
