    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.

    For some the goal was to simply qualify to run in the 2012 Olympic Marathon Trials, while for others the dream was to place top 3 and represent the US in the Olympics. My goal was to qualify to run in the Trials. Since I qualified six weeks prior to the Trials, I had to approach the race as a hard run rather than a goal race. I was thankful to have qualified, and I planned to thoroughly take in the events of the weekend and enjoy the experience.

    The weekend’s events were hosted in Houston at the Hilton Hotel and the George R. Brown Convention Center, an enormous facility with an appropriate red, white, and blue interior. Olympic Marathon Trials banners and the Olympic rings adorned the streets and buildings, creating a festive U.S.A. atmosphere. The Houston Marathon Committee clearly put extensive thought and detail into planning and hosting the event. They definitely succeeded in making it a memorable event for both the athletes and the spectators!

    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, ...

    Olympic trials weekend continued Sunday with the running of the Houston Marathon. Benita Willis ran an even-paced 2:28 to finish second and well below the 2:32 Australian standard for the 2012 Olympics.

    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. ...
