    After having logged 500+ miles on my Inov-8 Road Xlite 155, I have already proclaimed it as one of the top running shoes that I have ever owned. I have never been brand loyal to a shoe company, but that's starting to change. For a small shoe company Inov-8 offers up a large variety of shoes and I was excited to test out the Bare X Lite 150, which is a zero drop shoe.

    I've done a lot of running in racing flats, but had yet to try out any of the zero drop shoes that were out on the market. The Bare X Lite 150 is the lightest shoe in the Inov-8 lineup, weighing in at 6.1 ounces in a size 9.

    What does it take to transform a trio of runners--one, a housewife and mom of two, another, a self-proclaimed “talentless” 2:49 marathoner, and one more who had a love for the track but far less enthusiasm for long distances on the roads-- into Olympic Marathon Trials qualifiers? It took the knowledge of coaches Scott Simmons and Renato Canova of the American Distance Project, it took the faith that these three runners had in their newfound coaches and their “crazy“ training, but mostly, ...

    No one trains harder than Boulder's Tyler McCandless. The 25-year-old had big goals for the 2012 Olympic trials marathon and while 50th in the country's most competitive race, shares his disappointment over his 2:19 finish. McCandless remains optimistic for the future and, taking an old school racing attitude, already has his next marathon planned. He shares those thoughts in this video interview.

    We've teamed up again with Boulder Running Company - DTC to bring you another prediction contest. This weekend is obviously a big weekend for many of Colorado's best so we've picked Chris Siemers, a Mile High Track Club runner, as our subject for this contest! $50 to BRC-DTC is up for grabs!

    Chris has had a great year and is expected to do well in Houston as well. He finished 1st at the 2010 Mount Washington Road Race with a time of 1:00:22, winning by over a minute against some stiff competition. More recently and more impressively, he qualified for the trials by running a 2:18:48 at Rock n Roll Denver. No one has run that fast at altitude since the Colorado record of 2:18:06 was run at the downhill Rawhide Marathon in 1984. You can read up on his training before Denver here. ...

    Laura Thweatt may be hands-down one of the best runners in Colorado that you might not have heard of…yet. But without a doubt you’ll be hearing plenty more from her as she has already established herself at both a national and international level following a stellar race at December’s USATF Club Cross Country Championships where she placed 6th, thus qualifying her to represent the USA at the Bupa Great Edinburgh International Cross Country race in Edinburgh, Scotland last weekend. Along with American teammates Neely Spence, Ali Williams, Jamie Cheever, Betzy Jimenez, Katie Dicamillo, Bethany Nickless and Maggie Infeld, she was the team’s second finisher behind Spence, 10th place overall, and helped the U.S. senior women’s team to their 2nd place team title. All of this less than one year after wrapping up her college running career at the University of Colorado. It was her first race in a USA singlet, and it‘s not likely to be her last. ...

    With the Olympic trials marathon just a week away, most of the state's top runners were enduring a taper week. With few racing options, the rest of us weren't doing much either. There was Colorado representation at the BUPA Great Edinburgh Cross Country race, the Disney Marathon, Texas' Bandera 100K, and of course locally at the Lake Arbor 5K though. Top finishers in each of these races are highlighted below. ...

    On Sundays I like to venture out for a long run wearing my #15 Broncos jersey and I really needed a pair of shoes to complete the ensemble. I searched high and low until I found a pair of shoes that would work, the New Balance RC 1400.

    I'm not being completely honest with you, I don't even own a Broncos jersey and if I did own one it would be Eric Decker's.
