Caleb Chambliss came home to Chicago for summer break and talked about life at College along with the hurdles he had to get over living on his own, for the first time.
As a runner Caleb has been conditioned to working hard and staying focused so for him keeping his eyes above the hurdles has become a lifestyle. He just finished his freshman year and admits it was hard but he went beyond the barriers and won the "Outstanding Freshman" award.
It’s no secret the statistics of being a young African American man are not normally favorable but he says his personal relationship with God helps to keep him steadfast and he is just getting started making his contribution to society.
He has gained a group of great friends from all around the world that resemble the United Nations. When school resumes in the fall Caleb will be a sophomore and his aim is to finish strong.
He knows there will still be more hurdles ahead of him, but at the end of the day, no matter what happens he understands the race is not given to the swift, but to those that endure until the end.
