    Pearl Izumi likes to push the envelope with their advertising campaign. It all started with the "Run Like an Animal" campaign, "The Marathon. Once a Test of Will, Now a Test of Patience" and the "We are not Joggers" and to pushing unsanction racing. They even have these ridiculous sexual ads for cycling, here and here.

    It appears now that Pearl Izumi has gone a bit too far and is now offering up a public apology on their Facebook page for an ad that ran in Canadian Running Magazine, which they have now pulled.

    In Japanese, sayonara means goodbye and it was sayonara to the Miuzno Wave Precision & Elxir and konnichiwa to the replacement model called the Mizuno Wave Sayonara. The shoe caters to neutral runners and is 1.5 ounces lighter than the Precision and an ounce lighter than the Elixir.

    I've been amazed at the reduction in shoe weight over the last couple of years and the Sayonara is using a new midsole foam called U4ic, which Mizuno claims is 30% lighter, softer and just as durable. The Mizuno Sayonara hits the scales at 7.9 ounces in a size 9. The heel is 24mm, forefoot 14mm, for a drop of 10mm.

    Earlier this summer at a barbeque, someone was asking about my running background and asked if I had been a professional runner, referring to a few years ago. I immediately answered "no," but then backtracked with "well, what is a professional runner?" I won $2,000 in a race once, did that make me professional? I don't think so, but it got me thinking about how we identify ourselves as runners, and which Colorado runners really are professional.

    After 282.3 miles of trail running and mountain biking around America’s highest incorporated city, Leadville, Colorado, this summer, elite ultra endurance athlete Travis Macy stood atop the podium as Leadman winner this Sunday. The pinnacle of the Leadville Race Series that includes the world famous Leadville 100 Mountain Bike and Trail Run races, the Leadman is a six-week event that requires athletes to keep coming back for more as they race for the lowest combined time in five events: a trail running marathon that tops at 13,186’, a 50-mile mountain biking or running race that climbs over 7,000’ on gnarly Rocky Mountain mining trails, the legendary Leadville 100 Mountain Bike Race now featuring nearly 2,000 competitors, the “insult to injury” (according to Macy) 10k Run the day after biking 100 miles, and, last but not least, one week later, the storied Leadville Trail 100 Run, during which, “We send you over the biggest, baddest mountains this country has to offer,” according to pre-race speaker Cole Chlouber.

    The shark is back and two would-be documentary filmmakers are in the tank. I love a good documentary and watch a ton of them, but when it comes to most of these pitches, I'm just baffled that anyone beyond their immediate family would find them interesting.

    Typically "where are they now" articles are about childhood stars, but I have that same "where are they now" thought about a lot of former NBA stars, and I take to Wikipedia to find out what, say, Jamal Mashburn or Isaiah Rider are now doing. It's not so easy with runners, particularly non-professionals at the regional or national level, but you see it all the time, names that used to appear atop race results suddenly stop showing up, and I wonder why. ...

    Colorado's newest state park, Staunton State Park, has been welcoming visitors to its 3,828 acres since May 18, 2013. What was once Frances Staunton's playground now boasts 18+ miles from grassy meadows at 8,100 feet up to granite cliffs reaching over 10,000 feet. It was a long time coming, 27 years, as the park service addressed neighbor's concerns and built a new exit off U.S. highway 285. As per Staunton's wishes, the land remains a "wilderness-type" park few roads, and that's great for runners.

    There's nothing wrong with downhill races, they're a blast. Since the beginning of time people have been racing up and down hills, and Colorado's road races are no exception. But when it comes to Colorado's biggest downhill races, the argument that the descent offsets the altitude fails. And that's the case with Colorado's ten most downhill races, ranked below.
