    Let's not talk about that Broncos game yesterday. Light racing action in Colorado this weekend with a few football themed races taking place. After getting a few laughs watching Stephen Colbert launch his Superb Owl week, I'd love to see someone put on the Superb Owl 5K next year, or did Colbert already trademark it?

    The Denver Parks and Recreation have spoken and there will be no NEW run/race/walk or bikes rides in 2014. The website doesn't really state the reason why, only that "it's necessary in order for the city to provide the best possible experience for those recurring events we currently permit on an annual basis." I have no idea what that means.

    What I do know is that if you put on a race in 2013 in Denver, this will reduce your competition. Races come and go and the number of races that were being put on in the Denver parks were numerous, which begs the question were they too numerous?

    Omaha! Omaha! The Broncos are heading to Super Bowl XLVIII in "New York" with Denver being a 2.5 point favorite according to the sharks in Vegas. The weather in Colorado was prime for racing this past weekend, thus we saw some great local action and the elite runners headed south to warmer climates to run in the marquee races, namely the US Half Marathon Championships which was held in Houston. It was the third weekend in January, 2014 and did I mention the Broncos are headed to the Super Bowl!?

    Tim Noakes is a South African professor of exercise and sports science at the University of Cape Town. Professor Noakes wrote the "Lore of Running" in 1986, which is often called the "runner's bible." He then took on the sports drink industry in his book "Waterlogged" and in 2012 he challenged the idea that runners needed a high carbohydrate diet, and now advocates a low carbohydrate/high fat diet.

    I've always wanted a pair of glow in the dark shoes and New Balance has answered my prayers. New Balance says it's to "improve runner safety", I say it gets people talking. If you're looking for a shoe to take out on a midnight run, with some glow sticks swinging wildly in your arms, all while cranking some Avicii on your iPod, these are the shoes for you. The color schemes remind me of something that the U of Oregon would pull on their football uniforms.

    Zach Bitter ran 100 miles in 11:47:11, breaking the U.S. 100 Mile Open Track record. Zach ran his 100 miles at 7:04 per mile pace, incredible. I'm not sure which would be harder, running 7:04 pace for 100 miles, or the mental challenge of running around a track 400 times.

    The big race of the weekend was in Bend, Oregon, which was host to the USATF National Club Cross Country Championships. The Boulder Running Company/adidas women finished in second place, while Hudson Training System (HTS) Elite women took third place. The Boulder Running Company/adidas men's team finished in seventh place. It was the third weekend of December 2013.

    Legions of Colorado runners will make their way to the west coast this weekend for the Saturday's USATF National Club Cross Country Championships. This year's course, designed by trail and mountain running great Max King, is projected to be a far cry from the more common groomed-golf-course-grass-track style cross country courses typical at many races, in an effort to bring cross country back to a more European style featuring more difficult terrain. But the course, combined with the over 3,000 feet of altitude in Bend, Oregon, will hopefully tend to favor runners out of Colorado.
