The Marin Headlands is a runner's paradise. The hilly peninsula, which sits just north of San Francisco past the Golden Gate Bridge, inspired filmmaker Luis Peña to write and direct this soaring love letter. "These mountains have taught me to notice even the smallest of things," he writes. "Yet, it costs. The heart wants to burst, lungs strain for breath, but I run farther and farther."
