    I've always wanted a pair of glow in the dark shoes and New Balance has answered my prayers. New Balance says it's to "improve runner safety", I say it gets people talking. If you're looking for a shoe to take out on a midnight run, with some glow sticks swinging wildly in your arms, all while cranking some Avicii on your iPod, these are the shoes for you. The color schemes remind me of something that the U of Oregon would pull on their football uniforms.

    Zach Bitter ran 100 miles in 11:47:11, breaking the U.S. 100 Mile Open Track record. Zach ran his 100 miles at 7:04 per mile pace, incredible. I'm not sure which would be harder, running 7:04 pace for 100 miles, or the mental challenge of running around a track 400 times.

    The big race of the weekend was in Bend, Oregon, which was host to the USATF National Club Cross Country Championships. The Boulder Running Company/adidas women finished in second place, while Hudson Training System (HTS) Elite women took third place. The Boulder Running Company/adidas men's team finished in seventh place. It was the third weekend of December 2013.

    Legions of Colorado runners will make their way to the west coast this weekend for the Saturday's USATF National Club Cross Country Championships. This year's course, designed by trail and mountain running great Max King, is projected to be a far cry from the more common groomed-golf-course-grass-track style cross country courses typical at many races, in an effort to bring cross country back to a more European style featuring more difficult terrain. But the course, combined with the over 3,000 feet of altitude in Bend, Oregon, will hopefully tend to favor runners out of Colorado.

    Matt Prater set an NFL record by kicking a 64 yard field goal, Wes Welker got his second concussion in four games and CU beat number six Kansas on a last second three pointer. It was the second weekend of December and the state was frozen over with temperatures only reaching the teens.

    Well I hope you were watching that final second of the Auburn Vs. Alabama game, that had to be one of the greatest endings in sports history. The Denver Broncos took down the Chiefs, who now have an overall record of 9-3, but are 1-3 in their own division. It was the last weekend of November and the first weekend of December, the racing action was light due to the numerous Thanksgiving Day races, but we have a couple to tell you about.

    Thousands of Colorado runners toed the line on Thanksgiving Day, a day that saw perfect running weather. We had one of the top high school runners in the country racing and a college kid dressed in a Flash costume running a 15:29 5K. Personally, I like that Flash wears a RoadID bracelet on his right arm, safety first kids! Read below for a recap of races across the Centennial State.

    Four weeks ago Boulder-based Newton Running launched a new trail shoe- the BoCo AT (Boulder Colorado All Terrain). Only Newton’s second-ever trail offering, this shoe follows the Terra Momentum and will eventually replace it as the only trail shoe in Newton’s line. I got myself a pair of the BoCo ATs very quickly after they were available, anxious to try out a shoe which takes its name from Boulder on the trails of Boulder.

    I'd rather not talk about that Broncos loss last night, so we will start with a positive. The University of Colorado won the NCAA cross-country title on Saturday, their fourth under coach Mark Wetmore since 2001. The Buff entered the race ranked third and defeated No 1. Northern Arizona, 149 points to 169. The CU women's team finished seventh overall with 265 points.

    Adams State continued their D2 dominance, winning their fifth national championship in the past six years. The Adams State women's team took second, while Western State finished in third. It was the fourth weekend of November and we have a few races to recap.

    Kristen McGlynn-Arendt grew up in Bailey and was one of the top high school runners in the nation when she competed for Platte Canyon High School. She went on to run for Adams State University where she won a national championship in the 5,000 meter run. Kristen is now lighting up the local racing circuit, winning the Farmers 5000 in 17:17 and most recently The Great Candy Run 5K in 17:11. Now racing for Newton's Team Elite, Kristen took some time to answer a few questions from RunColo

    Normally it takes runners a few stabs at running 26.2 miles before they figure the marathon out, but not Malia Mullen. The Edgewater resident ran the Atlanta Marathon in October, her first, and won the race in 2:54:52.

    For this great performance, we are awarding Malia the title of Mizuno/Boulder Running Company/RunColo, runner of the month. Thanks to Mizuno and BRC, Malia will pick up a free pair of Mizunos.

    The first weekend of November was highlighted by the New York City Marathon, and while no American men or women made the top ten. Colorado was well represented at the race, especially on the women's side, led to the line by Adriana Nelson's 2:35:05, good enough for 13th place and first place American female.

    The Denver Broncos are 7-1 and have reached the halfway point of their season, as they head into their bye week. The Cardinals and Red Sox are notted up two games to two in the World Series, and the Obama administration is in disarray as the fallout over the Angela Merkel phone surveillance heats up. It was the fourth weekend of October and the racing action featured several Halloween themed races.

    This Saturday is the Home for the Holidays 5K at Denver's City Park. Last year's race had 566 finishers and was won by Dave Scudamore in 16:41 and Jessica Harper in 19:36. This year's race will be even larger and with Saturday's forecast calling for a high of 63 degrees, the temperature will be perfect for racing!
