Running a marathon is appealing to runners for many reasons. It’s epic! A real test for your mind and body and a challenge that truly fills you with complete elation when you cross the finish line. But it is in no way a trivial undertaking.
One year, I went to Cannes with the film ‘The Indian Runner’ that Sean Penn directed. Everyone else in the film was all the same height, and on the red carpet, when they were taking photos, none of them would stand next to me, and I totally got it.
What attracted me to ‘The Maze Runner’ is its pure action.
Winning times in the New York City Marathon have not dropped all that much over the years, but rather U.S. runners went backward. In 1983, there were 267 U.S. men who broke 2:20 in a marathon, and by 2000 that number was down to 27.
Alberto Salazar
I think I got to the point where a lot of runners end up: You plan another race so you have something to focus on and that’s what I do – I focus.
I know runners who have suffered a tick bite and ended up with Lyme disease. I’ll take an angry moose any day.
I’m a runner. Not a race runner, but I just love to run, and I don’t think I’ve ever tasted such amazing food like I’ve tasted in the whole entire New York.
Adan Canto
In athletics, older runners tend to go for longer races, but it’s the opposite in swimming because your body can’t handle the endurance.
Kirsty Coventry
I’m a runner by hobby and by nature of stress relief and staying fit.
As an athlete, you can train for so many years to be a 5K/10K runner. That’s who you are, and it’s hard to change that. Not using that techniquealmost like a sprint – that’s when you have to loosen up and just save as much energy as you can.
I think what makes ‘Maze Runner’ so unique is that it is a brotherhood. It’s really about a group of boys. It’s not really a love story – there’s no love triangle, none of that. It’s mostly about a brotherhood of boys who really don’t know what’s going on.
Dexter Darden
‘Blade Runner’ was one of several dystopian science-fiction films to tank in the early and middle ’80s. ‘Tron,’ ‘The Dark Crystal,’ ‘The Keep,’ ‘Labyrinth‘: none found a large audience.
Marathon runners set explicit goals.
So, we come out to Los Angeles. And we met with every network. We met with show runners, directors, writers, everything. And what we had an idea for, they didn’t like. And what they had an idea for, we didn’t like. So, we went home.
Growing up, I remember I played tennis competitively and I’d always like fake an injury to get out of the conditioning portion. I was never a runner.
Marathon runner Sophie Raworth is always trying to get me to put my running shoes back on, but I can’t match her for fitness.
I’m actually doing more stunts for ‘Maze Runner’ than I did for ‘Insurgent.’
Rosa Salazar
Im an entirely one-paced runner, but occasionally I try and go into a slightly higher speed and usually pull my dodgy hamstring. So I just potter along with my rather odd bow-legged running style.
As a runner on a film, you are the lowest of the low, and yet you have incredible access to everyone. I can totally imagine that for actors in the middle of a Hollywood bubble, all they really want is a sense of normality, and that gopher can be a tap for that.
I’m a great inside and outside runner.
In my 20s, life seemed endless. At 49, I’ve had a chance to see how dark life can be, and I am far more aware of the constraints of time than when I wrote ‘The Kite Runner.’ I realise there is only a limited number of things I can do.
I’m not a runner, and I always dreamed about just throwing on my sneakers and really knocking everyone’s socks off with my joy of traversing the world by foot.
When you’re a writer on a show, your job is to write in the show runner’s voice, really.
I think that’s kind of nice that there’s this kind of inherent respect between runners who do a marathon. People respect somebody who has done it, and I will do anything to get some respect because I don’t get a lot respect in my life.
Thus the sum of things is ever being reviewed, and mortals dependent one upon another. Some nations increase, others diminish, and in a short space the generations of living creatures are changed and like runners pass on the torch of life.
Blade Runner helped make my career. Everybody was in it. Who knew?
Brion James
Ambition is to be the fastest runner on this planet, to be the first on the South Pole, which is a grotesque perversion of ambition. It’s an ego trip, and I’m not on an ego trip. I don’t have ambitions – I have a vision.
For professional athletes, the motives for cheating generally are more obvious: money, fame, and often a low likelihood of being caught. But why would a middle- or back-of-the-pack runner lie or cheat in a race that doesn’t even matter?
I started running outside when I was at ‘Biggest Loser.’ Then I got runner’s knee, and thought I was never going to be able to shake it. When I overcame that and ran the L.A. Marathon, it was such an amazing thing, and now running is such a part of my routine.
A lot of marathon runners access flow state. That’s why it’s so addictive: because they just get into this state where they’re just completely one – they are in complete oneness. That’s what happens to me when I play music and, I suppose, a lot of other people, too, which is why we do it.
You don’t want to be sore when you’re running. So I wouldn’t suggest you train for a marathon and do CrossFit at the same time; the two don’t align with one another. When you’re a runner, your body builds the muscle where it needs to build muscle.
Beginning runners come in all shapes, sizes and pre-existing conditions, so there’s no magic formula for determining exactly how much basic running is needed before you start speedwork. Most experts, though, recommend three or four months of preparation.
For me, it’s about finding ways. Obviously I’m not a great hitter, but I’m going to try and beat you anyway I can. I think about that in every aspect of the game. Running? I’m not the fastest runner, but I can steal a base. For me it’s about taking advantage of what I can.
I think the future stopped looking American when you think back to Blade Runner and Neuromancer, when it started to look more Japanese.
By running the N.Y.C. Marathon in 2008, I became a runner and I think that’s what works the best for me and keeps my body the way I like it to be.
‘Maze Runner’ is about a group of teens that live inside this giant maze. And outside the maze are these creatures that come out at night. The centerpiece of the maze where we stay is called the Glades, and we call ourselves the Gladers.
I’ve been a runner a long time. When I first got into it, I started doing small triathlons in Chicago, and I just did it to get in shape. When I got out of college, I put on a few pounds like everybody does. I did it when I was in my early 20s, but I never really did any long runs.
No, we always had something to do because I did all the wave runners and jet skis and boats approaching the atolls and stuff like that, so you could do that without showing the actual atoll or the set that you’re going towards, but detailing all those guys racing towards it.
