Running can be a method of discovering new physical, mental, and emotional limits. Seeking a new way to test those limits, Ryan Chukuske set off on a 100 mile race. During the race, he discovered a new appreciation for himself and for life in general. This is a recollection of his thoughts during the race and how running can be translated to lessons anyone can live by. Finding change through pain and humility, and a touch of humor, he discovered that life is not about the running. Life is about the journey.
