As a fitness junkie, I find myself spending a lot of time in the gym. When I run on a treadmill, surrounded by like-minded people doing the same - all with headphones in, closed off to the world around them - I can't help but feel that as humans we are going against our nature like a caged animal cooped up in an unnatural environment. Over time we get used to it, but it does not make it any less discomforting to our natural modes of being. Thus, I developed A Glorious Run in hopes of capturing what I feel on the treadmill, not only to bring out the dichotomy between the state of mind of a "runners high" and the indoor, sterile environment I am able to achieve it in, but also to capture what that "runners high" truly feels like and how it might look if I used a magnifying glass on a mind in the midst of said experience. As I am an avid classical music fan, I chose Francis Poulenc's Glorious as the soundtrack to enhance and further provoke the natural rush felt in my character.
