When I was a freshman in college, one of the first things I remember my ski coach, Gordon Lange saying was, "In college, you've got the three S's: School, Sport, and Social life. So choose two."
Sarah Freistone is an incoming freshman from Anchorage who is going to have a slightly different take on that maxim. She'll be running cross-country for the UAA team in the fall, and then skiing for the ski team during the winter. She found success with this combination at Dimond High School, where she was one of the fastest high school distance runners in the state, and also one of fastest skiers. Having grown up here in Anchorage, she should know all the good training spots, and maybe she can show us some good rollerski roads and running trails that the coaches don't know about.
