Picture: Two Weeks to find one Polar Bear in Canada

I was lucky enough to hear about this film from a running friend of mine who runs a fantastic blog.
I’ve only just had the chance to sit down and watch it. It’s only ten minutes long but it’s a brilliant short that succeeds in the touhg task of getting random runners to open up to strangers while they run.
It’s almost as if the film makers, Matan Rochlitz and Ivo Gormley, have teased out that inner monologue all runners have as they take on their miles on any given day.
It’s an amazingly honest and touching piece of work. Inspiring and moving. It makes me think about every time I’ve run past someone, what they’re mulling over in their minds. What’s led them to be out on the road that day.
I’m not sure if you’d get the same response from walkers or whether there’s something about the type of people who run that makes this work.
Either way, it’s a ten minutes of your life well spent and something I definitely recommend passing on to other like minded people. They’ll thank you for it.
I’m going to paraphrase Simon’s words here, but get yourself a cup of tea, go somewhere quiet and enjoy this little glimpse into the hidden lives of runners. You won’t regret it.
Reblogging as the article gives great insight to.
