Finishing Strong
As I was attending the Master Track Field Day on Friday, I was able to observe a lot of races.  The one that is quite intriguing is the 1500m race.  Many students, full of nerves and excitement, shoot out of the gate.  Other runners have a more measured pace right from the start and make [...]

Milestones
This past week a few staff members experienced milestone birthdays.  Now, every year that God gives us life is a reason to celebrate, however, we often reserve bigger celebrations for reaching different decades.  Milestones are important.  We may want to try and deny that fact, or some may want to deny their age but it [...]
