    Adrienne Herzog, a professional runner who trains under Brad Hudson in Boulder, has had doping allegations made against her by a Dutch newspaper. The story broke yesterday and hit the US via LetsRun. You can find the original story here, and the LetsRun thread here.

    In July, Adrienne raced in the Bix 7 road race in Davenport, Iowa. She took 4th and won $1,500. Most recently she raced the Falmouth Road Race in Massachusetts and placed 5th and won $500. Adrienne has been making a transition this year from the track to the roads.

    The shark is back and two would-be documentary filmmakers are in the tank. I love a good documentary and watch a ton of them, but when it comes to most of these pitches, I'm just baffled that anyone beyond their immediate family would find them interesting.

    Typically "where are they now" articles are about childhood stars, but I have that same "where are they now" thought about a lot of former NBA stars, and I take to Wikipedia to find out what, say, Jamal Mashburn or Isaiah Rider are now doing. It's not so easy with runners, particularly non-professionals at the regional or national level, but you see it all the time, names that used to appear atop race results suddenly stop showing up, and I wonder why. ...

    Colorado's newest state park, Staunton State Park, has been welcoming visitors to its 3,828 acres since May 18, 2013. What was once Frances Staunton's playground now boasts 18+ miles from grassy meadows at 8,100 feet up to granite cliffs reaching over 10,000 feet. It was a long time coming, 27 years, as the park service addressed neighbor's concerns and built a new exit off U.S. highway 285. As per Staunton's wishes, the land remains a "wilderness-type" park few roads, and that's great for runners.

    Over the last few years, I have been doing all of my racing in the Mizuno Wave Universe 4 which was one of the lightest racing flats on the market at 3.8 ounces. The Mizuno Wave Universe 5 made its debut in early July, however having a hookup, I got a pair of Universe 5s back in May, just in time for the BolderBoulder 10K. I've run one race in the Universe 5 and a couple of track workouts.

    As I opened the Mizuno shoebox and lifted the Universe 5 out of the box, I literally laughed out loud. How did they make an already incredible light shoe, 30% lighter. Yes, the Universe 5 tips the scales at 2.8 ounces, I'm not even sure how that is possible, I think my socks weigh more than that.
