    The Mizuno EVO Cursoris is the heavier shoe out of the two new zero drop shoes that Mizuno introduced back in January, with the Mizuno Evo Levitas being the more minimal of the two shoes. The shoe is named after one of the oldest bipedal creatures, the Eudibamus Cursoris, sort of a goody looking reptile.

    Why go with a 232 when a 230 is lighter? Here’s why!

    My first idea of this shoe was that it was going to be exactly like the ƒ-lite 230’s…just 2 grams heavier, and who wants to haul around that extra 2 grams!? Not my skinny ass!

    When I received the ƒ-lite 232, I was pleasantly surprised at a number of tweaks and changes made compared to the traditional ƒ-lite models.

    Admittedly, I could only find three, and none of them are as good as say, the Canadian World Cross Country team video, but here we go.

    Fresh off the newswire, Kenyan marathoner Jynocel Basweti was suspended by that country's athletics governing body for a failed drug test. Basweti won the 2008 Denver Marathon as a 22-year-old in 2:22:16. A year later he finished second, 53 seconds behind race winner Chris Siemers. Although the article says "Basweti’s 26.2-mile low is 2:26 and last year she won races in Germany and Finland," Basweti is in fact a man. Just not as fast as you'd expect a male doper to be.

    Last year when Running Guru linked up The M1le on their Facebook page and hyped the $1,000,000 prize for a new world record, I commented right away, "I'll bet you $1,000,000 that the $75,000 cash prize purse isn't paid out." Some six months later, The M1le still hasn't hit the streets of Denver. I'm not going to say "I told ya so," but did some Googling for an update and here's what I found.

    It was a big weekend of St. Patrick's Day racing, green beer and it all folded into Selection Sunday, in anticipation of the greatest sporting week of the year. The CU Buffs and the CSU Rams made the Big Dance, the DU Pioneers will get to host their first ever NIT game and Elvis Dumervil is without a job and the Broncos are looking for a pass rusher. It was the third weekend of March, 2013.

    MANITOU SPRINGS, Colo. - Organizers of the Pikes Peak Marathon and Ascent are asking runners in those races to say no to performance-enhancing drugs.

    This year, several runners who finish in the Top 10 in each race will be randomly selected for testing by the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA). Currently, no other trail-running events in the U.S. test for prohibited substances.

    I think it's fair to say that Mizuno wasn't at the forefront of the minimalist shoe movement, however that changed in January 2013. The Mizuno Wave EVO Levitas is part of the Wave EVO Collection, a brand new line from Mizuno designed from the ground up for the midfoot runner. Levitas is light in Latin, a language that no one speaks anymore, except for the Pope and the Catholic church wonders why their numbers continue to decline.

    If you run many races in the Denver area, chances are you have come across Nick Sterner. In fact you may have read about Nick and his son Nick Jr. in a Runner's World piece, circa 2007, about how they used running to overcome their drug addiction.

    These days Nick is still running and has launched Feet on the Street, a business that puts on almost one race per year in Denver. Last December, I was at their Christmas Carol Classic 5K/10K and can vouch that Nick does a tremendous job putting on a race, something he is truly passionate about. We fired off Nick a few questions to find out more about Feet on the Street, Inc. Read below to find out what Nick is doing for the running community and local charities in Denver.
