MONDAY MOVIE MEME
Molly looked around for a weekly meme about movies and did not have any luck. So therefore she decided to start her own! Andy will play along as well - hopefully you will too. Go to your blog and create your own post on the topic, linking back to us in your post, then come back and leave a link to your post here in our Comments section.

This week's movie topic is all about Running...
Monday marks the 115th running of the Boston Marathon - the oldest annually contested marathon in the world. Having studied, lived and worked along its storied route for half my life, it holds a special place in my heart. I fulfilled my lifetime quota for running during 4 years of track in high school. Andy, as a former cross country athlete, has run in the challenging Falmouth Road Race on Cape Cod. But neither of us have or ever plan to run a marathon. Driving the route is tiring enough. We do know folks crazy enough to be running in Boston this year and wish them nothing but the best. Lots of movies feature runners, running scenes and foot races. Here is a small sampling of those off the top of our heads. Share on your blog those movies that make your feet tired just watching and link back here so that others can find you. And don't forget to visit your fellow participants!
- Running Brave (1983) - True and inspiring story of American Indian Olympian, Billy Mills
- Forrest Gump (1994) - Run, Forrest, Run!!! Boy did he ever.
- The Running Man (1987) - Good thing Reality TV hasn't advanced to quite this level.
- The Fugitive (1993) - Richard Kimball on the run for a murder he didn't commit.
