Highly recommended for a treadmill run, stair-stepper or elliptical, this is a beautiful self-produced documentary of an epic adventure: trying to hike all 282 of Scotland's "Munros" (mountain peaks above 3,000') in one summer. Kevin Woods does a really impressive job hiking, filming, editing and telling his story. The physical effort and stunning scenery aside, this film is notable for the honest way he documents the mental ups and downs he goes through. Anyone who has ever set themselves a big challenge, be it a marathon, a summit attempt, a PB goal, can identify with what he goes through. Spoiler alert, it is uplifting not depressing.
