    A few years ago, a co-worker asked if she should nominate me for the Colorado Running Hall of Fame. After all, I was a two-time Colfax Marathon winner she reasoned. I don't belong in the hall, but with nominations for the 2012 class coming due in a few months, here's who does. ...

    First a few links to share - A second showing of Unbreakable, the 2010 Western States 100 movie, was announced for Feb. 10th in Boulder.

    “Zebra stripes evolved to protect each animal as long as it stayed together in a herd. Large numbers of zebras appear to be one large animal to keep predators away. They survive together in a large group, but are vulnerable alone.”

    This is rUNIFY Boulder. This is a chance for the community to finally come together through one common connection. Running. This isn't about individual groups, organizations, sponsors, coaches, or a figure-head.

    Colorado has thousands of races each year in every distance and theme imaginable. How many obstacle course races popped up last year? The same is true of half marathons, all over the state. We don’t need any more Turkey Trots, there are plenty of Fourth of July-themed races, and no one dares schedule a race on Memorial Day weekend against BolderBoulder. We've got burro races and coffin races, and more than one of each. What kind of race is Colorado missing then?

    Homer Simpson: Welcome to the Internet, my friend, how can I help you?

    I haven't done this in a while, but glossing over my Google Analytics will always provide a laugh. So let's see what people were searching for and how they arrived at RunColo.

    If you spend much time around Boulder, you might see him; whether running the trails and dirt roads near Coot Lake on Sundays, or any of the other million trails in the area on any given day of the week. Or if you've stopped in the Boulder Running Company, he's that Really Nice Guy who talks to everyone like a good friend, is never out of corny jokes and sayings like "cool beans" and "holy buckets", and he usually spends no less than about 45 minutes on each of his customers.

    Trent Briney has very much been a part of the Colorado, and national, running scene for the last several years. He's been in a Hanson's singlet, a McMillan Elite jersey, now wears the Marathonguide.com label, and before all of those, sported the University of Colorado-Colorado Springs colors as one of the first team members of the program in 1996. Briney's face has been a familiar one in lead pack of dozens of national races--always very near the leaders, and usually finishing right on the heels of them. Briney's road to the top has been a steady climb, with the "Elite Briney" a far cry from the "Fledgling Runner Briney" of Manitou Springs High School. Despite a bottomless work capacity and a solid running resume', Briney also sometimes seems plagued by a case of “almosts." Almost an NCAA champion, almost a sub-29 minute 10k runner, almost a 10k competitor at the US Championships, almost a World Championship marathon contender, and almost an Olympian. Almost.

    After the Olympic trials marathon, LetsRun listed the top-5 contenders for the 2016 men’s Olympic trials marathon. Thinking about it, I started to wonder what Colorado runners are contenders to make it to the 2016 trials? Certainly the 2012 trials qualifiers are the most likely, but behind them, what up-and-coming younger runners could snag a spot in their first trials? Assuming that the men’s qualifying mark stays at 2:19, or even if it drops to the rumored 2:18, and assuming that the women’s mark drops to 2:42 or even on down to 2:39, here’s who we could see in the 2016 trials representing Colorado. ...

    The SHEEX website claims that better sleeps leads to better performance. I'm not sure if they are talking about performance in the bedroom or on race day, but the sheets are damn comfortable and silky soft.

    Full disclosure on RunColo, I didn't pay a dime for these sheets as they were sent to me in exchange for a product review. I also don't consider myself an information maven when it comes to bed sheets, I know the term thread count but that's about it, but I do know comfort.
