When Annijke Wade first set foot in New Mexico two years ago, she was unfamiliar with the landscape and its environs.

But she quickly learned to adapt to the dry air and high altitude. She even picked up a new hobby that became something of an obsession.

My wife is an avid trail runner who runs either the South Boundary, Ojitos, Carmelita, Talpa and Talpa Traverse trails every other day, and she covers 8-12 miles at a time.
