Shows and Movies That Inspire Me to Run but Are Not *About* Running


Stick It (2006)

Why it’s on my list:

This was one of those movies that came out in the early to mid 2000’s that defines the decade for me. I wasn’t a skater or a gymnast (I wasn’t even a runner back then, I liked theater and punk music and art) but this movie really inspired me to admire athleticism in women (as well as informing my budding queer sexuality. This movie is bi culture 4eva).
