    This weekend was not only filled with St. Patrick’s Day activities, but it was also packed with races locally and all around the country. Performance of the weekend goes to Boulder athlete Laura Thweatt as she travelled to Port of Spain, Trinidad, and placed an impressive third in the NACAC Cross Country Championships, helping the Team USA Women to victory. Many others competed everywhere from L.A. for the Honda L.A. Marathon to NYC for the NYC Half Marathon. Here are the highlights of a busy weekend of racing action.

    The University of Colorado's home cross country course, Buffalo Ranch, offers a challenging array of trails. Running here you will travel over trails ranging from skinny, uphill, and rock covered to flat, wide, and well groomed. This course has a lot of history to it, as it is where the CU cross country teams always open up their season, and many of those runners have won NCAA championships or earned All-American accolades.

    Tom Watson Park is located off of North 63rd Street in North Boulder, next to Coot Lake and the Boulder Reservoir. From the parking area you can of course run on the trails around the Boulder Reservoir and Coot Lake, but you also have the option of running on miles and miles of dirt roads. Navigating the network of dirt roads can seem a bit daunting at first, but it is quite simple after the first time you have done it. The backroads roll throughout farm lands and offer many awesome views of the Flatirons. You could park on the side of the road and really start anywhere along the route, but the benefit of Tom Watson Park is it provides access to bathrooms, water fountains, and even showers, which could be good if you are passing through town on a road trip.

    It was a beautiful weekend for Colorado racing as temperatures rose and spring made itself present. There was not a ton of local racing action, but many local elites could be found in Florida at the Gate River Bridge Run 15k, as well as at the Runnin’ of the Green Lucky 7k.

    "Walking (or running) with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light."

    This quote stuck out to me as I scrolled through the fundraiser amounts posted by the 59 individual athletes set to run in the Centaurus Warrior Marble 12 Hour Relay next weekend. This inaugural relay, put together by the Centaurus Track and Field team, not only strives to benefit a junior teammate, Bobby Marble, who is battling leukemia, but is an event that aims to bring the Colorado running community together.

    The East Boulder Trail is popular with runners, hikers, and mountain bikers alike. The main part of the trail, which goes out for about 3.5 miles is crushed gravel/dirt and meanders through farm land. After being pretty much flat up to this point, the trail begins to climb, gets a bit rocky and goes out for 2.5 more miles, for a total of slightly over 6 miles out. If you have read Running With the Buffaloes you will know of this run as "The Tank." This is because from the start of the run, and throughout most of the run, you can see a large water tank at the top of the hill, which serves as the crest of the hill that you will climb if you go out for a longer run.

    Everyone faces struggles at some point in their life. It is how we overcome our struggles that we really discover who we are. Last night, I had the chance to catch up with Jax Mariash about a mission that she started last year. A running mission to run 365 days in a row for a cause. Her goal is to raise money for Livestrong.org, share compassion for what they are going through, and promote wellness through the sport, while at the same time facing the challenges that everyday life presents.

    When I hear the name Ronin, I always think of the 1998 movie of the same name staring Robert Dinero. Maybe the folks at Mizuno thought Deniro was such a BA in that movie that it would make for a kick ass shoe name, if the shoe was named after Deniro, I say well done Mizuno.

    The Mizuno Ronin 4 retails for $105, weighs in at 7.2 ounces in a size 9 and has a heel height of 25mm with a forefoot height of 15mm and if you know how to subtract you'll know that equals a drop of ten millimeters.

    The Bobolink Trail in South Boulder provides runners with a well-groomed, flat, crushed gravel, and mainly uninterrupted trail. The length, surface, conditions, and flatness of this trail make it ideal for an easy recovery run or a normal run day. While many of Boulder's trails have somewhat rocky footing which forces you to focus both on running and not rolling your ankle at the same time, the Bobolink trail is very well maintained by the city and is almost always in perfect condition. ...

    This is the review you've all been waiting for. Don't lie, you were a little intrigued when you watched Meb win the trials in his Skechers. Obviously it's not all about the shoes you wear but it can play a factor in your performance . . . or lack thereof. When people first heard that Skechers was entering the running shoe market, most people scoffed at the idea. Why do we always jump to conclusions?

    I'm the guy that hates to carry anything with me when I run. In fact, I ran a 20 miler a week ago with a group of friends and showed up without any water or gels. Thankfully my buddy recognized my stupid decision and gave me some water late in the run and another shared a GU with me.

    In the summer months, my rule of thumb is if I am running <15 miles I generally don't carry anything, unless it is really hot. Over 15 miles and I use my Nathan belt. I like the Nathan belt, but I still hate having something on my waist and I often get some chaffing on the waist.
