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).
