NYC Marathon 2015

Before I get to my short movie, I just read this article about this huge jump in mortality rates among middle aged white Americans with a high school education or less. It’s pretty horrifying and sad, and the comments are very interesting and informative.

About my movie, it’s really just a few snippets. I didn’t get anything great, alas. But I love the bits with the squirrel and the guy juggling that showed up in the footage I got when I turned around and showed the runners entering Central Park. The last part is me trying to go to the finish line, but you had to have a pass for that spot.
