The Warmup Lap | 4.6.12 - 'The 41st Day,' A Documentary Following Ryan Hall, Is In The Works

"Have some BIG news to share with you guys tomorrow. Curious to see if anyone can guess what it is." That's whatRyan Hall tweeted to his 37,000+ followers on Tuesday. Then, when tomorrow came, he sent out the following: "Sorry to keep you guys hanging but the news is going to have to wait one more day. I'm enjoying your guys guess'!" So, delayed a day, but Thursday we finally learned the big news: "The 41st Day," a documentary film done by Tim Jeffreys, "will follow Hall in his build-up to the London Olympic marathon."

The film will include workouts, one-on-one interviews and even what Hall's life is like when he's not running. From the Kickstarter page:

Ryan isn't the ordinary runner, though. While competitors prepare in training groups under the systematic care of coaches and advisors, Ryan runs alone. Practicing what he calls faith-based coaching, he relies exclusively on the direction of his faith to dictate his training, an unprecedented and often scrutinized approach in the world of distance running. "For me, running is an art more than a science," says Ryan. One can't argue with his results up to this point, but will his faith be enough to take him to the top?
