    44,000 raced the strip at night and I'm told that this is where the elites were racing. There were no Olympic trials qualifiers in the full marathon, but Colorado men and women raced well in the half marathon. Here's a quick list of the top Colorado finishers. ...

    The 2012 Olympic Trials are right around the corner and we now know who is in and who is out at CIM. For the unqualified runner, CIM represented their best and final shot to race in Houston. A loaded field and a 2:46 pacer for the women on a net downhill course gave a hopeful runner their best odds.

    Women hoping to qualify for the trials have to run <2:46 and the men's qualifying time is a <2:19.

    Overall eight men ran under the 2:19 cutoff with Mario Macias being the only Coloradoan to make the cut. Twenty-five US women ran under 2:46, including; Joanna Zeiger, Danielle Quatrochi and Kim Dobson of Colorado. Nuta Olaru was third overall in a time of 2:37:13.

    The temperature at the start of the race was 28 degrees. Special shout out to RunColo's own Justin Mock on another solid marathon.

    Competitor announced today that Kate Gosselin will be running the Las Vegas Marathon on Sunday. That only means one thing at RunColo, it's time for a prediction contest.

    This will be Kate's first marathon, however it does appear that she has logged an 18 mile long run and is training. The mom of eight is 36 years old and "running a lot of miles" according a recent interview done by Access Hollywood.

    Sources close to RunColo report that Kate is competing in the race to stay in shape, lose weight, and deal with stress. We must say, she looks pretty fit in the photo below.

    Shoe selection is continually a hot topic for debate between runners and you will hardly find a consensus on any of them. If you have thought about minimal or barefoot running shoes, we have a new contender that will have heads turning. The Altra Zero Drop Instinct was selected Most Innovative shoe of the year by Competitor magazine in September. The Zero Drop concept is based on the idea that running natural will produce better results and less injuries because of the biomechanical neutral strike this shoe allows. With a true zero drop sole you are left to run with a natural stride that isn't being forced by the shoe you're wearing (most traditional running shoes are 8 to 12 mm drop from heel to toe). One major difference to the Instinct from what you'll find with most zero drop shoes is that it still gives you plenty of cushion. Minimal doesn't have to be uncomfortable. That's one thing I really loved about this shoe.

    An incredibly deep elite women's field is set to race Sunday's California International Marathon in Sacramento. Romania's Nuta Olaru (Longmont) is at the top of the elite list, and I'm told that she either just has or soon will gain U.S. citizenship, but following her are a ton of Colorado women chasing the sub-2:46 Olympic trials qualifying mark. Good luck to all of these women, and the few Colorado men on the elite list, in Sunday's race!

    The University of Colorado men over-achieved with a third-place performance today at the NCAA Division I Cross Country Championships. Ranked sixth nationally going in, the men were just five points behind runner-up Oklahoma State. The women weren't as fortunate and finished 11th, behind three teams they'd beaten earlier this year to win the Pac-12 conference title. Add to those runners several other Colorado athletes competing for other schools and I've got the full list below. Congrats to all of the collegiates on their season. ...

    Jefferson County Open Space (OS) is conducting a survey to help direct their priorities. Please take it at http://survey.rrcresearch.com/s3/jeffopen

    Many of you know that I've been working with mountain bikers to get them to allow night usage. It's never been allowed in their system, and they haven't been open to our efforts. This is one way of hopefully moving them to open some of the trails at night.

    The question related to this is 9 (I think) pages in, "Jefferson County Open Space Parks are open from an hour before sunrise to an hour after sunset. Do these hours adequately meet your household's needs?" I obviously answered No, and added the following comments in the space below the question, "Not enough post-work daylight hours Oct-Mar. Running/biking after it cools in the summer. Training for night races. It's fun running/riding at night, especially in a full moon."

    Sitting on a curb in Buena Vista, preparing myself for the start of the 2011 TransRockies, I glanced around at my fellow runners, paying close attention to the shoes they chose to race in. At a road race you see the big name brands; Asics, Nike, New Balance, adidas, et al. Trail runners are different though, they aren't loyal to the big corporations, instead I saw a lot of Hokas, Salomons, Merrells and Inov8. The only shoe that I saw from a large shoe manufacturer with a strong presence was the New Balance MT101 and that just so happened to be the shoe that I would be racing in the week of TransRockies.

    Going into TransRockies I had a few concerns, the first was that I had never run more than 90 miles per week and that was all on the flat lands of Denver, not in the Rocky Mountains. The second was my feet, how would they hold up with that much mileage and racing for six days. I've done enough racing to know that a bad blister or rubbing on the back of the heel can make it hard to run the following day, let alone race.

    Join the Incline Friends and ultra runners Anton Krupicka, Geoff Roes and Anita Ortiz for a premier showing of the new documentary “Unbreakable: The Western States 100,” at 7 p.m., Dec. 7 at Stargazers Theatre. Doors open at 6 p.m.

    The film by Journeyfilm’s JB Benna follows the footsteps of four extraordinary athletes, including Krupicka and Roes of Boulder, as they prepare for the 2010 race and the daunting challenge of running 100 miles across the Sierra Nevada, some of the most rugged country in the western United States. On race day you’ll join the runners shoulder-to-shoulder as they push their limits above timberline, and then risk life and limb on hell-bent descents.

    This is a must see for anyone who dreams of striding across the sky to greet the sunrise.

    On a beautiful fall morning and the first day of daylight savings time, some fast Colorado runners showed up to duke it out at the Golden Gallop 10K on the hilly course in Golden.

    Kenny Foster from Colorado Springs, who was getting a tune up in before running California International Marathon in December battled it out with Japheth Ng'ojoy from Greeley. The two were neck and neck at the four mile mark, but Kenny eventually pulled away to win in 32:27, with Japheth finishing in 32:51. Daniel Nally (Runners Roost) took third in 33:25. With 14 runners going under 36 minutes on the difficult course, the field was extremely competitive. ...
