    Denver, CO – October 8, 2011– An international field of elite athletes will lead nearly 15,000 runners on Sunday, October 9 at the second annual Sports Authority Rock ‘n’ Roll Denver Marathon & ½ Marathon.

    Leading the marathon field is U.S. 50k record holder Josh Cox of Mammoth Lakes, CA. A four-time U.S. Olympic Trials qualifier and three-time U.S. National Team member, Cox was named the USA Track & Field Athlete of the Week in January 2009 and again in January 2011 for winning the P.F. Chang’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Arizona Marathon, en route to breaking his own 50k American Record by three and a half minutes, running the second fastest time in history and missing the World 50k mark by a mere 7 seconds. ...

Four men from Fort Collins joined with a Chicago-area man to set a new world record for five-men linked together running a marathon, two non-collegiates won the Metro State Invite, and a Boulder Running Company star road runner raced on the trails again. Quick recap here, big day tomorrow. ...

    Flanagan vs. Goucher. Rupp vs. Solinsky. Simpson vs. Uceny. Our sport has seen some great rivalries and this weekend, you can add Verdi vs. Herzog to that list.

    Five Fort Collins area men have trained for, and plan to break, the five-men-linked-together marathon world record this Saturday at the Layton Marathon in Layton, Utah. One of the five has gone down with injury and a replacement is desperately needed! The current record is 3:26 and the group plans to run 6:45 minute miles for a sub-3:00 finish. The men will be tethered together throughout the race. Entry, hotel, and carpool is already taken care, just one more 3:00 marathoner is needed. This could be your one shining moment, one shot at glory, and your lasting legacy! ...

    Starting out for day 3, I was more sore and tired than I have been for any race in my life. I was "marathon sore." But after the sun hit me and I ran that first mile, the soreness left and did not return for the rest of the event. Somehow at TransRockies, I was able to push through the soreness and reach a whole new level where my body did not take the time to bother me about the pain. I guess my body realized I just was not listening. ...

    I had seen some Inov-8 shoes listed on various minimal-running blogs or reviews in RT, but I did not get a firsthand experience until I ran in the Gore-Tex TransRockies Run this summer.

    Inov-8 sponsored a few teams, and they gave us a flyer which showcased a few of their shoes. I'm the first guy to go through a race packet and pitch all the ads, but I held onto the Inov-8 flyer because it actually was informative and interesting.

    Arvada's Chris Siemers ran 2:23:03 to win the 2009 Denver Marathon. He followed that up with a surprise win at 2010 Mount Washington Road Race, beating America's best uphill runners with a very quick 60:22 run up the 7.6-mile auto road. Siemers considers that 2:23 marathon his last true race though. Back healthy and with a string of 120 mile weeks behind him, he'll seek a sub-2:19 marathon Sunday on the streets of Denver. The course has changed since 2009 and bands will now line the race course, but Siemers' ability to race at altitude remains the same. ...

    Lots of fast runners racing today, whether in Minnesota at the US 10-mile Championships, at the Twin Cities Marathon, or at the Rock 'n' Roll San Jose Half Marathon. Fernando Cabada and Pat Rizzo were at the US 10-mile champinoships, along with Nicole Aish and Paige Higgins. George Towett of Colorado Springs broke the Park to Park 10-mile course record on Labor Day, but how'd he do at the Twin Cities Marathon? One thing's for sure, he wasn't running like the guys in this video.

    Prior to TransRockies I knew little of Inov-8 and had only seen their shoes on a handful of runners, I brushed them off as a fringe shoe for trail runners. The more I learned about their minimalist shoes, the more intrigued I was, especially when I learned that they made road running shoes. Inov-8 was a sponsor of TransRockies, handing out goodies and taking care of the runners. ...

    The Fans on the Field 10K is one of the fastest growing races in Colorado. In 2009 the 10K event had 901 finishers, this year the event had close to 3,000 finishers. It's easy to see why this event is so popular and why it has sold out in the last two years. Runners get to run though the Pepsi Center, cruise downtown Denver to Coors Field and finish inside Sports Authority Field.

    One returning champ was back, while the other one (Mario Macias) was absent. With a $500 gift card on the line to Southlands, Augustus Maiyo cruised to an easy victory in 15:09, followed by Greg Reindl in 15:38 and Runner's Roost Brian Grudowski in 17:29.

    Boulder Running Company/adidas runner Lori Walker came back to defend her title and collect the $500 gift card to Southlands, running an 18:20 on the hilly course. Runner's Roost's Kim Dobson was a close second in 18:32, followed by Runner's Roost Stella Hefron in 20:17.

    Alex Nichols is a Colorado Springs sub-elite runner and a graduate of Colorado College. He spent the summer in Kenya and shares his story in his own words, part three of a three-part series. The first installment can be found here and the second here.

    Martin and I decided to make Iten our home base for filming after only a five minute visit. Unlike Eldoret, Iten has some hills, one of which drops a staggering 4,000 vertical feet to the Rift Valley below. The views are spectacular, and on a clear day you can see the other side of the great rift from the middle of town. Think of it like a reverse mountain, and we were lucky enough to find an apartment just 600 meters from the edge. ...
