    Sitting on a curb in Buena Vista, preparing myself for the start of the 2011 TransRockies, I glanced around at my fellow runners, paying close attention to the shoes they chose to race in. At a road race you see the big name brands; Asics, Nike, New Balance, adidas, et al. Trail runners are different though, they aren't loyal to the big corporations, instead I saw a lot of Hokas, Salomons, Merrells and Inov8. The only shoe that I saw from a large shoe manufacturer with a strong presence was the New Balance MT101 and that just so happened to be the shoe that I would be racing in the week of TransRockies.

    Going into TransRockies I had a few concerns, the first was that I had never run more than 90 miles per week and that was all on the flat lands of Denver, not in the Rocky Mountains. The second was my feet, how would they hold up with that much mileage and racing for six days. I've done enough racing to know that a bad blister or rubbing on the back of the heel can make it hard to run the following day, let alone race.

    Join the Incline Friends and ultra runners Anton Krupicka, Geoff Roes and Anita Ortiz for a premier showing of the new documentary “Unbreakable: The Western States 100,” at 7 p.m., Dec. 7 at Stargazers Theatre. Doors open at 6 p.m.

    The film by Journeyfilm’s JB Benna follows the footsteps of four extraordinary athletes, including Krupicka and Roes of Boulder, as they prepare for the 2010 race and the daunting challenge of running 100 miles across the Sierra Nevada, some of the most rugged country in the western United States. On race day you’ll join the runners shoulder-to-shoulder as they push their limits above timberline, and then risk life and limb on hell-bent descents.

    This is a must see for anyone who dreams of striding across the sky to greet the sunrise.

    On a beautiful fall morning and the first day of daylight savings time, some fast Colorado runners showed up to duke it out at the Golden Gallop 10K on the hilly course in Golden.

    Kenny Foster from Colorado Springs, who was getting a tune up in before running California International Marathon in December battled it out with Japheth Ng'ojoy from Greeley.

    USATF Colorado wishes to extend a giant thank you to races partnering with them in 2011. The Stadium Stampede 5K, Evergreen Town Race 10K, Heart & Sole Half Marathon, Lead King Loop 25K, and Boulder Marathon all served as state championships this year and made tremendous contributions to USATF Colorado and to the athletes they serve. Their support of competitive running within the state of Colorado is admirable and USATF Colorado and the state's runners thank them, their volunteers, and their sponsors. A huge thank you also goes to the runners that supported these races and to those that joined USATF Colorado. As promised though, USATF Colorado will expand their reach in 2012 and continue to improve their work within the state. ...

    Behind Geoffrey Mutai's incredible course record effort in 2:05 and Mary Keitany's late race collapse, there were dozens of Colorado runners racing today's New York City Marathon. We probably can't claim him as a Coloradan, but at the top of the list was John Beattie, a Brit who has spent time training in Colorado Springs, and ran 2:23:43 to place 21st overall. That's just the start of the list though. ...

The senior led the top-ranked Mountaineers to a Central Regional championship today at Denver's Washington Park. With a finish order very similar to the RMAC championships two weeks ago, Western again finished ahead of Adams in the competitive team race. ...

    Second-ranked Adams State defeated rival Western State today to capture their fourth straight Central Regional championship. Racing at Denver's Washington Park, the Grizzlies avenged their narrow loss two weeks at the RMAC championships. Adams was led by RMAC Freshman of the Year Tabor Stevens, finishing second overall in 32:12 for the 10K course. At RMACs, Stevens was just sixth two weeks ago and only Adams' third man. His progress throughout the season, particularly the last two weeks, bodes well for the Grizzlies' chances on Nov. 19 at the national meet in Spokane, Wash. As a team, Adams put three runners in the top-5 and five runners in the top-10. ...

    Halloween weekend brought a number of races to the Colorado Front Range and around the world. Wilson Kipsang's 2:03:42 marathon in Frankfurt, a near-miss of the recently-lowered world record, tops the weekend's performances, but Boulder's Pat Rizzo donned a U.S. singlet, former NCAA star Robert Cheseret made his half marathon debut, and Denver North alum Joseph Manilafasha helped Oklahoma State's bid for an NCAA cross country title. All of the weekend's action is highlighted below. ...

    Why is it 5A, 4A, etc, instead of just 5, 4…? The “A” just isn’t necessary. Either way, the state championships were held at the Arapahoe County Fairgrouns in Aurora today. Freshman stole the show on the women's side, while the 5A boys race was clearly the most competitive division. Top performers from the big show are highlighted below. ...
