Thanksgiving Traditions: Turkey Trot Recap

I am not so great about keeping traditions. Its not that I don’t want to make and keep with them. I love the idea of doing something annually for the sake of consistency, meeting up with friends new and old, and now introducing my children to those things I love and feel are important. I believe this is the allure of the Turkey Trot as part of our holiday tradition.

In-Step Boulder

South Boulder’s only running store Active Imprints had a built a sizable cult following. Their key location in the Table Mesa Shopping center had good parking and great access to trails/bike paths south of town. They made custom insoles for the some of the best athletes in the region as well as the world. RL Smith worked there for many years, learning the trade of building custom lightweight orthotics while working in the retail space.

So when the store’s owners broke off to concentrate on the Newton Running brand, it seemed natural that RL Smith and wife Tricia Vieth would open In-Step at the same location.

Letting Go

On a run a few weeks ago, I ran by a row of young trees lining a road that had failed to relinquish their leaves to the season. I thought it odd at the time, but given the warm weather, not surprising perhaps.

Lately I’ve really been feeling the effects of living. The delicate balance of work, family, social, community and of course running isn’t quite in-sync.

Take a left, or go straight if you choose

“Zen and the Art of the Easy Run” – I took it out a bit too fast yesterday. Headed out at a pace that felt comfortable at first then progressively got faster. For all intents and purposes this became what Greg McMillan would call a Fast Finish run. So today I needed to go easy. But going easy can be tough. Read how I got through it.

Snow Run – You gotta get out!

It seems in Boulder we have been waiting all year for it to snow. There have several false starts to our snowy season, but its been light at best. Until now. The social network has been all a twitter with updates about the snow. All the discussion was getting me pumped to get out.

Big Dry Creek East Westminster

With the wind at my back and fresh legs the Big Dry Creek trail lulled me into a false sense of fitness. My legs turned over quickly and my breath was barely audible as I relaxed into the pace.

Sandrock Reviews “Honorable Run”

When Matt McCue was a freshman walk-on to the University of Colorado cross country team in the summer of 2001, he showed up for his first run at the Potts Field track. The were only three runners at Potts that day; future NCAA champions and Olympians Jorge Torres and Dathan Ritzenhein, as well as Edwardo Torres. McCue got hammered that July morning, but he hung tough with the “skinny Trinity” the entire 12-mile run.

Boulder’s Sandrock Provides Shoes for Third World

“It’s so satisfying, much more satisfying than doing something that would make a lot of money,” said Sandrock, who is also a freelance journalist specializing in running. “One World Running is really a great name because we’re all running together. We’re all connected.”

Perhaps Winter IS Here

In the past few days we have had drizzly snow, then warm again and today meets with snow. There was enough of the white stuff to get everyone excited and lead to many great photo opportunities.

Sir Roger Bannister visits Boulder

Tucked in the backdrop of Boulder’s majestic Flatirons, the larger than life-size bronze sculpture of Sir Roger Bannister evokes just as much awe. In 1954, 25-year-old Bannister was the first man to run a mile in less than four minutes. Found in the corner of
