    Elite runners have begun to line up for the USATF Colorado 10-mile championships. The men’s field is especially fast. Prize money will go five-deep overall ($400, $250, $200, $150, $100) and one-deep masters ($150) and is limited to USATF Colorado members. With the elite women’s field especially thin at this point, ladies are encouraged to renew their USATF memberships and find their way to Pueblo on March 4. Three weeks out, the elite entrant list is below.

    2/21/12-Adrian Chouinard and Tera Moody added to the women's list.

    Local racing action was again limited, but a handful of Colorado elites competed in Albuquerque at the US indoor championships. Colorado men raced their indoor regional meet. Adriana Nelson and Adrienne Herzog went to Puerto Rico for the World's Best 10K. And the state's best stair climbers raced to the top of the Denver skyline. Here's the weekend's highlights. ...

    The first annual "Run to Work Day" is just over a day away - Friday, February 24. HoneyMilk, the great-tasting nutritional drink, will award a free case to the individuals with the day's longest one-way run commute in the Denver area, the Colorado Springs area, and in the Fort Collins area. Reasonable steps will be taken to ensure the accuracy of one's claim - it's unlikely that anyone will run from Denver to Colorado Springs on Friday morning. To enter the contest, post a pic to the "Run to Work Day" Facebook page with your day's mileage and route. ...

    Rivaling Tebow-mania and Linsanity, Hea-steria is sweeping Denver's race scene. Like Tebow's interceptions and Lin's turnovers, Heather Utrata's performances might not be the weekend's best, but she just keeps on winning. When it comes to the weekend's best performance though, ultrarunner Chad Ricklefs from Boulder tops that list for his effort at the Austin Marathon. Here are the highlights from a limited weekend of racing action. ...

    Merrell and Vibram teamed up in 2011 to create a minimalist shoe, called The Trail Glove. Previously I had not much experience with Merrells, with the exception of my winter boots, so I was curious as to how good of a running shoe they would make. As stated before I love my Vibram Five Fingers and am a fan of Vibram soles.

    When I lined up next to Adrienne Herzog in her bug huggers at last year's Scream Scram 5K in Denver, I joked with her that this was a family event. She crushed the field at that race in 17:11, just as she had at the Metro State XC Invite weeks earlier. A Dutch citizen now training in Boulder, Herzog was the bronze medallist at the 2009 European Cross Country Championships and the fifth-place finisher at that same race in 2011. As she prepares for the upcoming track season, Herzog shares with us "The Benefits of Bun Huggers."

    “Designed for the racer with over-pronation, the Musha 3 delivers pure performance to cover any race distance. The Mizuno Wave deflects forces at impact while providing guidance for excess pronation. Additionally, the shoe provides a silky smooth ride and great feel for the road.”RunningWarehouse

    Having run in Mizuno Wave Inspires since 2007, the Wave Musha seemed like a logical choice for a racing flat to be used for everything from 5K to the marathon. I just replaced my worn-out Wave Musha 3s with a brand new pair courtesy of Mizuno/Boulder Running Company and RunColo!

    A preview from the upcoming movie The Dictator featuring Sascha Baron Cohen. I have to say when I saw this preview during the Super Bowl, I laughed pretty hard. The movie comes out this summer.

    This morning on KBCO, they were talking about the Colorado Music Hall of Fame. It's located on the second floor of the 1st Bank Center in Broomfield. It of course got me thinking back to the Colorado Running Hall of Fame. Few of you likely know where it is and even less have visited it. The Colorado Running Hall of Fame is located within the Denver Athletic Club. I was a member there for a short while and, correct me if I'm wrong, recall that the hall of fame was a wall of plaques lining a lower level stairwell leading to the lockerroom. The hall of fame then is inaccessible to most Colorado runners. This isn't meant to complain about the DAC, I'm guessing that its their generosity that covers the cost of the plaques and the induction ceremony and without the generosity, the hall of fame wouldn't exist. But, I'm just offering up some alternative locations. ...

    Colorado will be well-represented in St. Louis, MO., at this Saturday's USA Cross Country Championships. In spite of the fact that 2012 will not feature a World Cross Country Championship, this year's race will still showcase a number of the nation's best including the likes of Dathan Ritzenhein and Molly Huddle.

    Coming from Colorado, the Running Republic of Boulder will have by far the largest contingency from the state. Coach Darren De Reuck will be competing alongside Running Republic athletes Richard Dissly, Stephen Fether, Kyle Hubbart, Douglas Gerber, Lydia Dissly, Mary Alcio, and Joanna Zeiger. ...

    We interviewed Ben Hahn of The Mancos Project in December and he promised that the team would soon begin to release their list of members. That first set of athles is now listed online and alongside Hahn, himself a 1:06 half marathoner, are a pair of elites from Colorado Springs and a couple of soon-to-be Colorado residents.
