    The Denver Post pumped out a pair of running links to share - "Running landscape undergoing dramatic transformation" and then this piece on Buena Vista's shot and discus star Mason Finley, now at the University of Wyoming. Locally, racing is of course concentrated at the BolderBoulder 10k. Apart from that, we've got Anton Krupicka returning to action at New Mexico's Jemez 50 and Stevie Kremer going global at Spain's Zegama SkyMarathon.

    Released in August of 2013, "Sports Gene" is one of my favorite books that I have read in the last few years and easily the most interesting and educational. "The Sports Gene" is a fascinating look at the role genes play within sports. Why do NBA players have absurd wingspans, why does Michael Phelps at 6'4" buy pants with a 32" inseam which is shorter than those worn by 5'9" Hicham El Guerrouj. All of these topics and more are covered in David Epstein's book, so it was a pleasure to get to sit down and speak with him for 80 minutes.

    Is it possible that Mother's Day weekend is a more popular race weekend than Father's Day? Although mid-May brought several Mother's Day races to town, trail and ultra racing dominates this weekend's recap with high-profile racing around the globe. Other links from the past week to share include Running Times' "Returning Joy to Leadville" and Libby James on the pages of ESPN.com.

    Colorado Race Timing has had the privilege of working with James and Michelle Bettis, founders of 3W Races, for the last year or two and I can attest that they always put on fabulous events that are well organized and produced. RunColo decided to fire off a few questions to founder Michelle Bettis and find out a bit more about 3W Races for the RunColo audience.

    Do something nice for mom and take her to the races this upcoming weekend. Colorado Race Timing has four races to tell you about for Mother's Day weekend. The inaugural Mother's Day 5K in Highlands Ranch already has 600 registered and is going to be a huge success. One of my favorite races, albeit I'm bias because it's on my home running turf is the High Line Canal 5K & 10K in Centennial. Lastly on Saturday we have the CBPA Earth Day 5K in Golden out at Fairmount Park, which is a really cool park.

    On Sunday we have the Mother's Day 5K in Denver's City Park, which treats everyone to an admission to the zoo post race. This race draws over a thousand runners and is always a great time. Check out below for more details and we hope to see you and your mom there.

    Former CU Buff Andy Wacker had to throw in a late kick to beat Charles Hillig's course record by five seconds, easily winning the Kohl Elementary School 5K in 14:53. Last year Hillig defeated Wacker by 14 seconds in a hotly contested battle, this year however with Hillig absent, Andy had no challengers but the clock. Andy picked up $100 for the win and the Unser Racing Dash 4 Cash bonus of $100 for breaking the course record.

    I was first introduced to Dr. Kelly Starrett while reading Tim Ferriss' "The Four Body" years ago, back then he was simply the goofy guy doing stretches in Tim's book. Dr. Starrett is the co-founder of San Francisco Crossfit and MobilityWod.com, he regularly works with professional athletes from a wide variety of sports, including the New Orleans Saints and Arsenal Football Club.

    Since Kelly's brief cameo in "Four Hour Body" he's exploded into a celebrity in his own right. In 2013, he published his first book "Becoming a Supple Leopard" a text book on injury prevention, movement and athletic performance which was a national bestseller in the health and fitness arena. The book is incredibly high quality, tons of photographs, one of those books you leave on the coffee table and come back to time and time again.
