    It's triathlon season and if you prefer the open water swim, check out the Metro Brokers TriathlON Friday, that's right a Friday evening triathlon out at Cherry Creek State Park. This is a great evening event, with a great post race BBQ, distance is a 1/2 mile swim, 12m bike ride, and a 5K run.

    If open water triathlons are not your thing, check out the Highlands Ranch Tune Up Triathlon on Saturday. Distance is a 500 yard indoor swim, 12m bike ride and a 5K run.


    The Neighborly Service 5K is already boasting a field of Kenyon Neuman and Jeremy Freed. The 5K takes place at Ruby Hill Park, in Denver.

    Denver-based Gart Companies announced Monday that its running retail division has acquired the locally based Boulder Running Company.

    The transaction's financial terms were not disclosed.

    As a result of the deal, Boulder Running Company's three Colorado stores -- 2775 Pearl St., Boulder; 8116 W. Bowles Ave., Littleton; and 3659 Austin Bluffs Parkway, Colorado Springs -- will join Gart Companies' Running Specialty Group division.

    The three-store Boulder Running Company's beginnings stretch back more than 15 years to 1996, when runners Johnny Halberstadt and Mark Plaatjes opened a specialty running store in Boulder.

    Believe it or not, most of you opted to run instead of Prancercise this weekend.

Here's the rundown on the entire weekend's highlights.

    One of my favorite races in Colorado is the Drop Your Drawers and Run Wild 5K, which will be held this Friday evening in Denver's City Park. Last year's race had 437 finishers and this year's race will be even larger.

    On Saturday, Colorado Race Timing will be timing the Sierra's Race 5K in Loveland, easily one of the top 5K races in the state of Colorado and the race has moved to The Ranch to grow even more in the coming years.

    The fifth annual Selian 5K, will be held in Greenwood Village on Saturday.

    Sunday, for your triathletes, check out the Foothills Feat Triathlon, races for the adults and the kids.

    Dom "Ask any racer, any real racer. It doesn't matter if you win by an inch or a mile; winning's winning."

    With the debut of Fast & Furious 6 on Friday, I figured we needed a little Vin Diesel to jump start Memorial Day 2013. Jeremy Freed won by more than an inch, but less than a mile as the former Colorado State University standout won the BolderBoulder 10K citizens race in 30:58.

    Romanian Lidia Simon, who won the silver medal in the Olympic Marathon back in 2000, was the women's winner of the citizens race in 34:05.

    I'm a big fan of the tv show Shark Tank on ABC, and Orange Mud seems like the kind of company that would be on there. Orange Mud is a very young company with a small, but growing, range of products, and I'm a high on the transition and seat wrap. It's best shown in pictures and I've tried to capture its intended use in the series below.

    We're going out on a limb and awarding the Mizuno/Boulder Running Company/RunColo runner of the month to a non-Coloradoan, however Leslie Luna has been dropping some fast times in the Denver area and will be moving to the Mile High City this summer.

    Leslie grew up in Albuquerque and was a University of New Mexico Lobo, where she ran on the track and cross country team. This year Leslie has won the Lucky Laces 5K, running a 17:05 and she recently won the Mother's Day 5K in 17:37.

    Thanks to Mizuno and Boulder Running Company, Leslie will win a free pair of Mizunos for being our runner of the month.

    RunColo has ruined quite a few PRs in the last few years by pointing out courses that were incorrectly setup and short in distance, and unfortunately we've done it again. The 2013 Colfax Half Marathon was 12.99 miles, which made it .11 miles short.

    This morning a fellow runner sent me the email below, from the race director. I personally know how hard it is to setup a race course and mistakes do happen, big thanks to the Colfax Marathon for acknowledging this error and correcting it for the 5,164 finishers who ran the race.
