    Kim Dobson had a fantastic year in 2011, where she won the Pikes Peak Ascent in a new age group record of 2:34.07 and qualified for the 2012 Women's Olympic Trials Marathon at the California International Marathon in a time of 2:45.55. After competing in the Olympic Trials Marathon this past January, she set herself up well to make the US World Mountain Running Team for 2012. Unfortunately, she had an off day at the Loon Mountain Race held on July 8th and missed the team, placing 6th Female Overall. This past weekend she made history, winning the Pikes Peak Ascent in 2:24.59, shattering the previous 31 year old record of 2:33.31 set in 1981 by Lynn Bjorklund. For her efforts, she took home an $8,000 prize package and had one of the best performaces of the year in the state of Colorado. Below, we take a brief look into her training and what made the difference for her in 2012.

    Last October Brooks launched what has become their highly successful PureProject line. Within the collection of four shoes was one trail shoe, the PureGrit. Weighing in at 8.7 ounces for men and 7.7 ounces for women, the PureGrit joined the ever-growing and highly popular family of less-traditional and less-substantial trail shoes. I found the PureGrit to be a solid addition to that group of shoes.

    The PureGrit fit me slightly short in my usual size 10. The width is average and overall there is a great fit throughout the upper. My heel is solidly secure in the back, my midfoot feels great, and my toes have enough room to move around a bit. The NavBand—a piece of elastic stretching over the tongue and attaching among the lace islets—is included throughout the PureProject line. This feature has the ability to accommodate movement and a variety of foot shapes while maintaining a great midfoot fit. The upper is nicely soft; it won’t give you much toe protection out on the trails but it sure does feel nice and if you wanted to wear this shoe without socks you certainly could.

    The third annual La Sportiva Pikes Peak Prediction Contest returns to RunColo. La Sportiva shoes and an accompanying prize package are again up for grabs! The women's Ascent and the men's Marathon are the two most intriguing races and we have a contest, and prize package, for both races. Can Kim Dobson defend her title against Anna Frost, or is 2012 the year of Morgan Arritola? Will Matt Carpenter rise to meet Kilian Jornet's challenge, or can Max King keep up with Jornet on the relatively tame Barr Trail? Let's see your predictions! ...

    If the election were held tomorrow, 512 of RunColo's friends on Facebook would vote for President Barack Obama, while only 114 would vote for Mitt Romney. Gary Johnson is running a close third with 15 votes. The poll's margin of error is +/- 52.3%.

    Best of luck to Governor Gary Johnson who will be riding in the Leadville 100 this weekend.

    As much as I love running, there is one thing that I love even more and that's entrepreneurship. When you combine running and entrepreneurship, that's when I get excited, thus I'm excited to tell you about a local entrepreneur and runner and his new business venture.

    Kyle Ewing of Denver, a triathlete/runner recently launched Guerilla Tags, a wrist mounted ID system for athletes.

    We asked Kyle a few questions and he was kind enough to give RunColo readers a 20% coupon code for Guerilla Tags, which you will find at the bottom of the interview.

    A friend of mine recently asked my opinion about GPS running watches, as she wanted to buy one for her husband on his birthday. She was looking at the stylish Nike GPS watches. I told her that I knew nothing about the Nike GPS watches, never used one and I don't even know anyone who owns one. I personally have always used Garmins and all of my friends have Garmins. I told her to get a Garmin, why, well because they just work.

    Highgear recently sent me their new XT7 Alti-GPS watch for a review. The XT7 retails for $250, which puts it pricewise in the same camp as the Garmin Forerunner 210 or the Garmin Forerunner 410, which has been out for a few years. I have used the Forerunner 410 for the last two years, so my comparison will be to the Forerunner 410. The XT7 does come with a heart rate monitor, which one would have to purchase separately for the Garmin 410 watch, so that is a plus for the XT7.
