One of my major duties here at NMSU is serving as the student government Advisor. These young leaders know how important teamwork is so I don’t need to remind them very often. For the last 15 years, I’ve been a runner and am grateful to have been in long distance relays as part of a team several times. I wrote an article about it in a running club newsletter, and then my Coach, Neely Spence Gracey, invited me to submit it to her blog. Click on the crimson link below and hope you like it. I had a running blog for years where I shared my experiences but the host went down, so I’m starting fresh to get ready for ’18. Even if you’re not a runner, I try to make deeper connections to life in general.
