Stull says “I can take athletes where they want to go,” dedicating himself to each and every runner on the team, regardless of ability, so long as the student is committed to the sport. His training routine develops athletes over several seasons in order to avoid injury and burnout. Along with physical and mental stamina, he helps students build framework for life-long health and well-being.
