(01/27/12 7:26am)

When Tecumseh Adams runs a track race, he is not focused solely on race strategy.

Adams, a sophomore distance runner on the CMU track and field team, won an individual Mid-American Conference championship in cross-country last fall. He will compete today at the Indiana Relays at the University of Indiana for a spot in the 5k event in the NCAA Indoor Championship in March. “I’m feeling pretty good,” Adams said.
