    It looks like the Hot Chocolate 15K has dropped their planned Denver race, but don't fret, new races are filling in the 2012 calendar and a few look especially interesting. ...

    I generally pride myself on creating unique content, but will make an exception in this case. I also don't often pick up a copy of the free Competitor Magazine, but strolled past a rack with the current issue and saw the below profile of Fort Collins and Runner Roost team member Steve Folkerts. The sub-2:30 marathoner is set to enter the master's ranks.

    "This shoe inspires speed," reads the Newton.com website. After using their new racing flat off and on throughout my recent marathon training cycle, I completely agree. The MV2 (pronounced MV squared) combines the benefits of all Newton shoes - their natural running technology that encourages a forefoot strike - with a zero heel-to-toe drop and a lightweight flat. And because of that, the shoe is winner and stands out as one of my favorite racing flats.

    If you want to make your friends laugh, show up to a group run wearing a pair of moccasins. You'll get some strange looks and "are those moccasins?"

    Soft Star Shoes has been in business for 25 years making high quality handcrafted moccasins that mimic barefoot running. The folks at Soft Star sent me a pair of RunAmoc moccasins, their most popular style.

    For the past decade, Nuta Olaru has been one of Colorado's fastest female marathoners. In 2004, she ran 2:24 to finish 2nd at the Chicago Marathon, and competed at the Olympics that same year. More recently, in 2009, she was 2nd at the Houston Marathon in 2:27. Now at age 41, she ran 2:37 for a third-place finish at the Cal International Marathon earlier this month. Having just become a U.S. citizen, she tells us that she plans to be back racing in Houston next month and shares her thoughts on citizenship, aging, and sponsorships. ...

    Last week when we posted the USATF Colorado 2012 state championship calendar, the first thing most noticed was the lack of a 5K championship. Simply, no 5Ks applied. Each race likely has their own reasons for this, be it not wanting to exclude non-U.S. citizens from the prize money, not wanting to pay significant prize money, and/or not wanting to pay the USATF Colorado fee to host a state championship. Certainly there are costs to hosting a state championship, and their are benefits. The races will have a more competitive field, generate more press, and have share the prestige of being a state championships. ...

    Colorado has several elite training groups, but none are as unique or ambitious as The Mancos Project. (Note: Mancos is a small town between Durango and Cortez in southwestern Colorado). The group, and the accompanying Team Earth Elite, will be led by Ben Hahn, a 14:14 5000m runner and 1:06:19 half marathoner from Pennsylvania. In addition to training and racing at an elite level, athletes will support the group's eco-friendly and sustainable living mission. In this interview, Hahn introduces us to the group's plans, reveals how they were brought to Mancos, and spills some of the fast times that expected team members have run. ...

    Competitor announced their 2011 awards on Friday. I guess it'd be awkward if Competitor's Rock 'n' Roll Denver Marathon didn't win for Best Marathon. That one was a given, but there are a few surprises. Highlights of the 2011 awards are below. ...

    When Sean Houseworth won the Rock 'n' Roll Las Vegas Marathon, he let out a scream as he crossed the finish line. Not only did he run an impressive 1:03:12, he did so against some of the top American runners in the country and improved his half marathon PR by over two minutes.

    The 24-year-old from Highlands Ranch attended the United States Air Force Academy (USAFA) and is currently training under Juli Benson, who also coaches Jenny Barringer-Simpson. He is also member of the Air Force World Class Athlete (WCAP) Program.

    One would have to say that 2011 was a breakout year for Kim Dobson. The 27-year-old from Aurora, Colo., who attended Arapahoe High School and Colorado State University, has shown that she can dominate in the mountains and that she can throw down some impressive road times as well. She knocked off more than ten minutes from her 2010 marathon time when she ran a 2:45:55 at the California International Marathon two weeks ago.

    This past summer Kim won the Pikes Peak Ascent where she almost broke the course record and also won the prestigous Mount Washington Road Race in New Hampshire.

    Kim teaches second grade and lives in Aurora with her husband Corey and is sponsored by Runners Roost.

    The 2011 year is coming to a close and races are becoming less frequent. Aside from U.S. club cross, there were a few other standout performances this weekend to highlight. Did Colorado's high school cross country scene suffer from a down year, or did they also just opt for the Nike championships instead? Colorado participation at Footlocker was sparse. The weekend also include the European cross country championships, and a half marathon in Miami. Results for Colorado runners are below. ...

    Earlier this week, I posted a list of Colorado's Olympic marathon trials qualifiers and asked which qualifiers would not race in Houston. After a quick check of the USATF site's "Status of Entries" page, I can tell you which qualifiers are not currently entered into the trials race. ...
