    A month ago I was timing a race in Grand Junction and heard a few families talking about the Scholl family, they weren't even at the race and that made me smile. The family travels hundreds of miles together on the weekends, just to take in a road race with mom, dad and the kids all competing. It's hard not to notice the Scholl family and that's why we did an interview with them two years ago.

    Tabor Scholl will be embarking on her sophomore year at West Grand High School in Kremmling and she has already accomplished more in her first year than most girls dream about in four years of high school. I personally am excited to see how her career unfolds, as I know many of the RunColo readers are as well.

    Tristan Mitchell, 26 years old, from Centennial, CO is our Mizuno/Boulder Running Company/RunColo runner of the month for April.

    Plantar fasciitis, that nagging heel pain that you feel one morning when getting out of bed and that gets progressively worse without treatment, is one of the most common running-related injuries. With the distinction of being one of the most common running injuries comes a slew of information and advice on the best treatment remedies. Unfortunately, the most common advice for this injury will not actually fix the underlying issues and will therefore not get you back out there running pain-free. Rest, rolling your foot on a golf/lacrosse ball or a frozen water bottle may all help your foot feel a bit better for the time being, but they will not fix the problem. Dr. Phillip Shanks, a sports chiropractor out of Evergreen, CO, offered his advice on the best path of treatment for when a runner is afflicted with plantar fasciitis.
