Director Statement

I decided to make my short documentary about long distance running because it’s an activity that I personally believe has benefits physically and mentally. For my short documentary I wanted this story to be about someone who I believe is the strongest athlete from my team at Hartnell College, Angel. He narrates his story while telling the audience how long distance running helped him.
