    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. ...

    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. ...

    Racing for the first time in the Pac-12, the University of Colorado men and women came away conference champions. For the women, the win was a huge upset as they were only expected to finish fourth going in.

    The CU men finished with 46 points to outduel Stanford (53) and Oregon (93). The Buffs were led by Richard Medina's third-place run in 22:54. He was followed by Andy Wacker (6th, 23:24), Joe Bosshard (9th, 23:30), Christian Thompson (13th, 23:37), and Ammar Moussa (15th, 23:43). The gap between CU's 2-5 runners was just 19 seconds. Bosshard, last year's top runner, was running in his first race of the season. If he can improve through the rest of the season, CU's national championship bid will greatly be strengthened. Moussa of course is competing as a true freshman. ...

    Socks arenít the most exciting piece of running gear, but after burning through pair after pair when holes would develop, seeing the lifetime guarantee of Darn Tough socks is pretty incredible. Socks generally just aren't durable enough to warrant a lifetime guarantee, but just seeing those words, you want to believe that the socks are quality made, and after wearing a few pair, they really are.
