With the transition from the spring to summer semesters here at Sterling College, the trails have dried out, the sun rises earlier, and it's been easier to find a few more hours in the week to focus on training. The Sterling running team has started 5:00 am summer practices three times each week, which has helped … Continue reading Goals
Hold fast your hope
