I love how this scene illustrates both the free joy and excruciating focus of running. I wish the clip included the bit of speaking in the chapel at the very start–it’s a great setup to the beach run. Still, a memorable scene of boundless youthful energy in its prime, set in a pristine, bygone time and place. Perfect intro to a fantastic film.
