Run, Pharm Boy, Run!: an ultrarunner documentary profiling one runner as he undertakes the San Francisco One Day race. There's something appealing about running a time instead of a distance (ie running for 24 hours with no prescribed endpoint).

"The passive American consumer, sitting down to a meal of pre-prepared food, confronts inert, anonymous substances that have been processed, dyed, breaded, sauced, gravied, ground, pulped, strained, blended, prettified, and sanitized beyond resemblance to any part of any creature that ever lived. The products of nature and agriculture have been made, to all appearances, the products of industry. Both eater and eaten are thus in exile from biological reality." - Wendell Berry
