Ambrose, a legend in Michigan track and field and cross country, celebrated his 100th birthday with friends, family, former athletes and coaches.

The film captures the love, dedication, and insanity of the every day runner as well as the excitement, pain, and humor of the unprepared first timer. Their stories are reminders that no matter who you are, you can push yourself beyond where you thought your limits were.""
