    reminds me of myself….
    ahh….those were the days…, i used to run …..fast…real fast..

    Yes, different people do run for different reasons…

    Two men (Eric and Harold) ran for different reasons– They stand up for what they believe in and refuse to sacrifice their principles because it is the easy way out.

    the name of the movie is inspired by the poem, ‘Jerusalem’ by William Blake which refers to a Biblical event:

    Jerusalem (excerpt):

    Bring me my bow of burning gold:
    Bring me my arrows of desire:
    Bring me my spear: O clouds unfold!
    Bring me my chariot of fire.

  3. tismar,

    probably you can still run…fast…real fast…on a treadmill, sweating away, shedding some pounds!

    Saji,

    Thanks for the information. I didn’t know much about the origins. Looks like you are a real fan!
