In running ultramarathons I have learned so many life lessons along the way. I learned to run through my problems and not away from them. I learned how to push when I had nothing left. I learned how to cope, to process, to be still and know that the Lord is God, how to pass time without the noise of this world but rather the sound of my feet hitting the ground. The ultrarunner has a view of life that makes all the training and running worthwhile.
