Running the Lunatic Fringe

     One of the great things about running is the variety of talents it rewards and venues in which to display them. The differences between a road 5k and a hundred mile trail race (and the athletes who compete at these distances) are so great that it's sometimes hard to lump them together under the same "running" umbrella. Don't agree? Well the range doesn't stop there. After 3 minutes of thorough internet research, the shortest race I came across was this:…

Easiest Sports to Pick Up Quickly

Being involved in sports events from kid's soccer games to collegiate basketball events and reporting, I am ALWAYS asked (especially by women) what the easiest sports to pick are. A little background, when I was born, my dad was waiting in the delivery room with a golf club in one hand and a helmet in the other. He was certain of two things: 1) that I was a…

Christmas Ideas for the Winter Weather Sportsman

Winter is almost here, and so is the holiday season (I can't believe I'm even writing that already). I'm getting my list together and for the men who like to bundle up and get outside for some fun winter sports, such as snowboarding, skiing, or zooming through the slush in a snowmobile, I've been looking up the hottest gifts to give these snow addicts.…

Triple Crown Ruuning Series 2012--Official end

What a fun and rewarding series of races the Triple Crown Running Series was this year! I did all of the little "extra additions" this year as well, including bringing along a family member to the inaugeral 5k in the Garden of the Gods as well as participating the 10k Road Ascent only a week ago.

I was part of the PikesPeakSportsTripleCrown Runners Team this year, something I wanted to do to become more involved in the running community. For years now, I was always the "rushed…

Oh, hey!

Me (3), Carly Keller (2), and Kelly Ping (1) took home the goods for F25-29. With the awards ceremony a few months after the races, we runners had a chance to actually look presentable for the photos.

My legs have healed. The Triple Crown of Running is mostly a memory. I checked the…

Big Apple Update

Sure has been a while since I’ve updated things here.  The upcoming New York City Marathon has taken a back seat to some other recent developments in my life.  I’m still super excited to be headed to the Big Apple, but anything near a PR is out the window.

Took five days off for a Phish show last month.  One of my favorite bands, and it was my first time seeing them live.  The show was only three days long, but it took another two days to recover from the experience.  Taking nearly a…

Pikes in October: Fostering Resiliency

     The streak lives on and for the tenth time this year I made it up and down America's mountain in one piece. Gone are the days where a single handheld is all that is needed for the journey.  A jacket, gloves, and a hat have become mandatory accessories now that snow and single digit temperatures are the expectation. On this go around, Scott and I climbed together enjoying the sparsely populated Barr trail on a frosty fall day. At the top, I also got to say a brief hello to Andy before…

Inca Trail Marathon to Machu Picchu - Andes Adventures


Do  not be misled! There is no "official" Inca Trail Marathon. There cannot be because the Inca Trail is in a National Park. We organized our first Inca Trail Marathon in 1996.…

Grand Prix long series champs cruise at Pumpkin Races

Winning tastes sweet whether it is your 11th time, like men’s Grand Prix of Running Long Series winner Gerald Romero or first-time women’s overall champion Brianne Pierson.

“It’s exciting,” said Pierson, 33, who had won her age group in years past but never the overall title. “I won at the Sailin’ Shoes and ran a fast Top 10 so I knew I was in good shape coming in. I ran a tough half-marathon last weekend but I PR’ed this course so I am real happy with how I ran.”

Two Wheels, All Kinds of Racers

It has been so much fun racing in the Sand Creek Sports Jersey and sharing my stories about preparing for and racing the Ascent Cycling Series. It was also a honor to be chosen as a member of the Sand Creek - Pikes Peak Sports team. Cameron and I both took the series and he pretty much demolished every race he entered, including the finale at Palmer Park. I had to skip that last Sand Creek race - the ProCycling challenge. The mind was willing but I needed the day off.

Cameron has…

4 Must-Try Sports and Activities for Guys

It's the Bucket List for all men. The "to-do" of every guy, no matter what their age, these are the sports in life that every male should try at least once in their lifetime! 

1) Indoor Skydiving

It's the thrill of a lifetime, flying through the air without the fear of falling hundreds of feet to your demise. Granted you will need to have a strong back for this sport, but it will be well worth the sore muscles. At around $100, you can get 5 or 6 flights along with the…

What a year!

While my Pikes Peak Sports team mate Cameron has been on a roll, winning almost everything in sight, it was different end to season for me. I also raced at 24 Colorado Springs this year - my first time for this race. Last year, Nick raced solo single speed and I ran his pit. This year, we stuck together for our Duo Mixed attempt at a Stars and Stripes Jersey. We knew it was…

24 Hour Nationals and 2012 season wrap up

I had been excited about 24 hour Nationals for months. Ever since I made the commitment to race back in the late Spring all of my riding had been with the aim to go as fast as I could around and round the 13 mile lap in Palmer Park. Of course I was motivated to try and win the title on home turf and represent in front of so many friends, family and other supporters. Having…
