U.S. Mountain Team Shines in Alaska The Teva U.S. Mountain Running Team had a strong showing at the World Mountain Running Trophy in late September. Both the men’s and women’s team placed 8th in the team standings. The race was held on Mt. Alyeska in Alaska and was plagued by a freak early season snow shower. This year marked the first time the WMRT was held in the United States and only the second time it was held outside of Europe. Anita Ortiz of Eagle was the top American finisher, placing 8th in the senior women’s 7.7K race. “I felt so good on the downhill,” she said. “I actually think the snow helped make it a more controlled course.” Kelli Lusk of Massachusetts placed 38th and Kari DiStefano of Telluride finished 48th overall in the women’s race. Paul Low of Massachusetts was the top American runner in the senior men’s 11.5K race with a 15th place finish. “I had been shooting for a top 10 finish all year,” he said, “But I guess 15th is pretty close.” Bill Raitter of Estes Park placed 29th, Peter De La Cerda of Alamosa finished 61st and Simon Gutierrez of Alamosa came in 79th place overall. The men’s course featured a 2,000 foot climb and two muddy, steep 2K loops near the top. Maggie McNangal of Colorado Springs, Jessica Pitzer of Nederland and Erika Ross of Colorado Springs were the top American runners on the junior women’s 4.2K course, finishing in 30th, 32nd and 33rd. Andrew Payton of Woodland Park, Eduardo Pasko of Colorado Springs and Brett Wilson of Loveland competed in the men’s junior 7.7K race, finishing 35th, 38th and 47th.

Koerner Breaks Colorado Trail Record

Hal Koernor (yellow) & Ian Torrence on the Colorado Trail

Ultrarunner Hal Koerner of Parker completed the entire length of the Colorado Trail in 9 days, 10 hours, 19 minutes and 8 seconds. This shattered the previous record of 11 days and 16 hours. The Colorado Trail covers 468 rugged miles between Waterton Canyon near Denver and the Junction

: November/December 2003

Creek trailhead near Durango. Koerner began the run on August 28th with ultrarunner Ian Torrence of Moab. The pair battled freezing temperatures, fierce wind, rain and an occasional wrong turn in their pursuit of the record. After running about 300 miles, Torrence dropped out of the run because

of an IT band injury. The Colorado Trail was first inaugurated in 1974. It climbs over eight mountain ranges, through seven national forests, six wilderness areas and across five river drainages. The trail averages an elevation of more than 10,000 feet and tops out at 13,334 feet.

The Fast Lane 2. What are your current goals? If all goes well, I’ll prep for the Olympic Trials in St. Louis in April of 2004. 3. Describe a typical training week in your preparation for the Chicago Marathon. Monday – a.m. 60-70 minutes, p.m. 40 minutes Tuesday – a.m. sustained workout which may consist of either mile or 2K repeats, p.m. 35 minutes Wednesday – a.m. 1 hour and 40 minutes, p.m. 35 minutes Thursday – a.m. 60 minutes, p.m. 35 minutes Friday – a.m. tempo paced workout of 40-60 minutes at marathon pace Saturday – a.m. 60 minutes, p.m. 35 minutes Sunday – a.m. 2 hours and 30-50 minutes 4. After your success at the Chicago Marathon, how will you spend the winter? My coach will have me take two weeks off, no running at all. The next two weeks will be getting back into training and then we are planning on maybe running some races in Europe over the new year period. Our winter goal will be National Cross Country Championships in February in Indianapolis.

Q&A

Victor Sailor

5. What motivates you to train so hard? Success. It’s always great to be in good shape and race well.

with Colleen De Reuck Colleen De Reuck placed 7th overall and was the first American finisher in the Chicago Marathon in October, clocking a time of 2:28:01. Fresh off her success, she talks about her love for running and what’s to come. Born - Vryheid, Natal, South Africa Current Residence - Boulder, CO Running PR’s: 5k - 15:19, 10k - 31:16, 15k - 48:12, half marathon - 68:38, marathon - 2:26:35 1. Tell me about your favorite race. I’ve run so many races that have been great, it’s hard to say which one stands out the most. I will say though, my favorite discipline of road racing, track and cross country is cross country. I’ve been to Europe for many years in the winter to run cross country. Each race is different in the various countries I’ve raced. Sometimes it’s in the warm sunshine and other times it could be snowing and cold.

www.coloradorunnermag.com

6. What achievement makes you the most proud? Last year I made my first U.S. Team to the World Cross Country Championships in Dublin, Ireland. Our team placed 2nd and Deena Drossin got the silver and I got the bronze as individuals. Being on a great team and then performing well was an absolutely fantastic experience. Our team was nestled between the Ethiopians and Kenyans. 7. Where is your favorite place to run? In Boulder we are blessed with wonderful trails. Two of my favorite are: starting out at the trailhead off of Arapahoe (Teller Farms) and running out and back past the water tower; the other is starting out at Bobolink Trailhead and going over Marshall Trail, crossing Highway 93 and going down Dowdy Draw and part of the Mesa. 8. Other than running, how do you like to spend your time? Since having my daughter Tasmin in January ‘95, my perspective on running has changed. My family will always be more important than running. Being a parent is a full time job and then maintaining a household doesn’t give me too much time for relaxation or socializing. We do vacation at least twice a year, where we get away and relax.

On The Run

Monumental Run

A

utumn crept in splashing color among the cottonwood and aspen trees. Leaves hang gold, frayed and tossed by a gentle morning breeze. There’s a chill in the air though it’s short-lived by a warming sun that breaks over the horizon lighting up the crown of a twenty milelong gem that is the Colorado National Monument. At its base, in a dirt parking lot, the lone woman stands looking up at its beauty. Is there a better place in the world to appease the heart and soul of a runner? Surely not. For several years the stretch of Rim Rock Drive that hugs the edge of this monument had been her final long run in preparation for a fall marathon. Today is no different. She starts her watch and begins her ascent. Chicago in three weeks, she says aloud. Her feet hit the

pavement with the uncertainty that morning runs can bring, though within minutes she’s found her stride and the familiar rhythm that’s propelled her over thousands and thousands of miles run. Someone once wrote a book called the Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner. Well, this is the sound of that loneliness; the patter of footsteps laid to ground in perfect cadence, and too, the beat of her heart and the exhalation of her breath. It’s a chorus of drums and wind. Her favorite song. In the preceding months she’d been fortunate to have the company of other area women who also plan on running Chicago. One, spirited and gung-ho, another, a proven talent who ran for a powerhouse in college, yet another with untapped talent, the wildcard of the bunch, and still one more,

a hard working, determined woman with aspirations to qualify for the Boston Marathon. The five would meet before dawn on the outskirts of town and run together for hours. They hardened their bodies and sharpened their minds and tapped their senses by time spent on the barren trails in the heat of summer. During these long runs they offered each other support and camaraderie, all the while staying true to their plan and to each other, ten miles here, twenty there, hill work and speed play, meet me at eight, meet me at seven, let’s meet at six to be home by eleven. Today was different though. Today, she chose to run alone, finding herself in a reflective mood, wanting to nurse the emotions that welled inside her. She’s lived a runner’s life. She’d won her share of

races, embarrassed in others, dropped out of few. She’d battled injuries, egos, self esteem and self-deprivation, and, of course, time. As a runner, time ruled her life. Someone else once wrote that “time is the enemy.” He was right. Runners know this better than most. Other runners judge them by it. They judge themselves by it. Yet, it’s the most arbitrary wish in life. And now, three weeks before Chicago she reflected on it. Past marathons. Her first; Marine Corps, first in age group. California International; a 1:22 first half and not enough experience to know better. Twin Cities; a 6:20 pace through twenty-two miles and a 2:51 when it was all done. That was a defining moment. Ninety-one seconds off the qualifying time for the Olympic Trials and, for better or worse, changed her expectations at future marathons. Two years later, fourth place and prize money at Big Sur. Then, Portland and another Twin Cities attempt; both sub threehour marathons but slower than her personal best. She’d been chasing time for eight years now. This year the Olympic Marathon Committee lowered the qualifying time by two minutes to sub-2:48. Time keeps getting shorter. There’s no doubt it’s the enemy. To the east a star still visible in the early morning winks one last time. Sweat beads on her brow and runs down each side of her face. Behind the wheel of a pickup truck an old man speeds down

Rim Rock Drive narrowly missing her. Surprised by her sudden appearance he jerks the wheel more than needed. She sees his mouth open and drop as he overcorrects to straighten the wheel. Time has got the best of him, she thinks. His reflexes slow. It’s everyone’s enemy. Fifteen hundred feet of climbing and six miles later she’s on top of the rock. The view is sweeping and it looks like the beginning of the world, high and lonesome save an eagle that rises on a breath of air. To the north a mud-colored reef stretches the entire eyeshot, scarred and besieged by millions of years of

erosion, rising, cutting sharply into the sky. To the east the largest flat-top mountain in the world lays like a bed which the sun rises from, swollen and red. It’s now that mile-long shadows of the monument’s jagged edge and the monolithic spires that fall from its side are cast westward enveloping the green valley that’s split in two by the Colorado River. And more, patches of clouds dance listlessly across the quiet sky, their bottoms pastel refracting the morning light. It’s a mosaic of color up here. She sees her own shadow. It too is thrown long and before her and mirrors

her stride. It’s good company. But in three weeks she’ll have more. Thirty seven thousand runners, roughly the same population as her hometown, will gather to share twenty-six miles of pavement in downtown Chicago. The size of the field is daunting. In it she will hope to find a pack of women with the same goal and pace as her. Together they’ll run the streets in search of a qualifying time. And each one would have a similar story of lonely miles spent in search of a dream to be realized on these streets. Together they will share the bond of a collective power and one of purpose. Another vehicle approaches and this one, in spite of no other cars being in sight, gives nothing, forcing her off the road and momentarily into a small wash. The driver, her mouth wide and stretched, had not seen or not cared. Just another casualty of running, she thinks. The life of a runner, invisible. Passing by in the early hours, sun-baked afternoons and late evenings, dodging, weaving, avoiding all things motorized and ignorant. It was always the same. On she went. Into her rhythm, into cruise control, seeing little now, except for the visions that danced in her head. Ten miles and seventy minutes later the road opens up to a view of Independence Monument. This is the Sears Tower of the Colorado National Monument. In a desertscape of spiraling cathedral-like rocks,

this one stands above the rest. She senses its strength and she too feels strong. She witnesses its beauty and she too feels beautiful. It stands tall and complete and she too feels the same. Her legs turn with ease, her stride opens and she floats. This paramount monument is a good symbol, she thinks, a good metaphor to her life, fighting to stand out in a sea of others. A lifetime in the making. Ahead she sees a sign: One mile to the visitor center. This is where she’ll end her run today. She’s tireless and opens her stride even further envisioning the last mile of the marathon, the clock ticking down, two forty-three, two forty-four, time growing short. That god-awful enemy hanging about her like a ball and chain. In a thought of what will come she senses those around her with the same desperation she now feels. It will be close, no doubt. And even as her legs grow heavy she quickens her pace yet again as the visitor center comes into view. The final stretch of the run, an apparition of the closing moments in Chicago squarely upon her now. She’s flying and dreaming. Dreaming of Chicago. Dreaming of time. Dreaming of flight.

Training Smarts

Winter Speed Training

It’s cold outside. It gets dark early. The track and roads are covered in snow and ice. That doesn’t mean that you can’t do speed work. With a little flexibility and creativity, you can get in quality speed workouts over the winter. by Adam Feerst Winter Speed Not everyone should be doing speed work this winter. If you’ve just finished a late fall marathon or a long racing season, then this should be a period of rest and recovery. If your next target race isn’t until spring or summer, then focus on building strength and endurance, not speed. However, if you are focussing on a winter or early spring race, then go for speed this winter. Where To Run The first challenge is finding a place to train. If you have access to a treadmill or indoor track, that may be your best option. If you don’t, or don’t like running indoors, then find a road that’s kept plowed and is relatively free of traffic. Roads in some industrial parks and business complexes are good after hours and on weekends. Some paved bike paths are plowed over the winter, but be careful of ice under bridges and in heavily shaded spots. Dirt paths, like the Highline Canal in Denver, are great when dry. Indoors Treadmill training has become popular since Chris Clark won the U.S. Women’s Marathon Trials in 2000, training almost exclusively on a treadmill in Anchorage. Make sure the treadmill is adequate for your needs. Some treadmills don’t go faster than 10mph. Stair climbing machines also do a decent job of simulating running. They are especially good for building climbing strength. With a stair climber, avoid using the handrails for support. There are a few indoor tracks around the state, such as CU-Boulder, School of Mines in Golden, and the Englewood Recreation Center. Be careful about health clubs that claim they have an indoor track. In some clubs, it may only be carpet over a concrete floor. You want to make sure the track has a forgiving surface, good ventilation, and no more than 8 laps per mile (no less than 200 meters). Sharp turns on short tracks put added stress on muscles. Reverse directions periodically. Outdoors Running in the cold needs to be different than in the warmer months. Like taffy, your muscles are stiffer when they are cold. Take more time to warm-up before stretching and doing anything hard with at least 10-15 minutes of easy running. This helps open up your heart and lungs as well as your legs. If you are pressed for time, shorten the hard part of your run, not your warm-up. Injuries occur when you cheat. Also, when it is cold do longer intervals at slightly lower intensity with shorter rest. When you’re running outdoors, base your workouts on time. One of my favorite winter workouts is a series of descending ladders. Run 4-3-2-1 minutes hard, with a 1 minute easy jog in between. Instead of following your watch, you can also do a

: November/December 2003

fartlek. Use landmarks, for instance, run hard for 4 lampposts and easy for one. Cold and Ice Dress in thin, easy to take off layers. When the air is cold, try wearing a bandana over your mouth. This pre-heats and moistens the air before it hits your lungs. Start slow and ease into the speed before forcing large quantities of cold air into your lungs. When running on ice, run with a shorter and quicker stride. This is not only safer, but will improve your form. A faster turnover will improve your speed. Staying light and balanced will make it easier on the ice. Stay in control and don’t go harder than you’re comfortable with. Also, try to be flexible with your training schedule. If you plan your speed workouts on Wednesday but the forecast calls for a storm that day, do your speed on Tuesday instead. If the weather is really bad, skip a week. Missing a workout or two isn’t going to significantly affect your fitness, but getting injured or sick will. Train Smart If you have a big race coming up soon, you can still get in speed work over the winter. Be a little creative with where and when you run, and how you structure your workout. Run indoors or adjust your workout to the conditions. Run intervals based on time or landmarks rather than a precise distance. Use longer intervals rather than short sprints. Shorten and quicken your stride. Dress in layers. Take extra time to properly warm-up. Be smart. Be safe. Have fun.

Beautiful Course Attracts Runners To Mt. Sneffels Mt. Sneffels 1/2 Marathon Ouray, CO August 23, 2003 210 Finishers Colorado runners are spoiled. We run in grand places like Garden of Gods, up mountains like Pikes Peak, along picturesque red rock cliffs like the Colorado National Monument. We’ve come to expect an extraordinary canvas as a backdrop to our races. Add another to our list. Only in its third year, the Mt. Sneffels Half Marathon delivers yet another great venue for racing. Starting in the picturesque town of Ouray the course winds the high country roads to the town of Ridgeway. Mt. Sneffels, the most prominent fourteener in Western Colorado, hangs over the runners like a sentry. Like many races in Colorado fast times are not to be expected, the altitude, dirt roads, and the area’s rugged topography, turn this event into a gut-itout performance. Yet, the scenery is so spectacular the race’s draw is evident. In the men’s race, Eric Martin, of Colorado Springs, pulled away from a chase pack that included two other “Erics” and won by nearly three minutes, a time of 1:21:53. The women’s race saw Grand Junction resident Kathaleen Recker exchange leads with Denver’s Stella Heffron in the early miles. A chase pack formed that included last year’s winner, Ingrid Butts and Crested Butte’s Anthea Schmid. Running about thirty seconds off pace, they caught and dropped Heffron at mile four, and then had their sights on Recker. But on the “one-mile” hill that took runners to the final aid station at mile eleven, Recker began gapping them. She would end up winning in 1:32:19. Results on page 19.

Labor Day Weekend Brings A Competitive Field To Breckenridge Breckenridge Crest Mountain Marathon, Tenmile Range 12.7M/5M Breckenridge, CO August 31, 2003 140 Finishers - Marathon 216 Finishers -12M 128 Finishers - 5M By Helen Cospolich Cool weekend weather provided ideal conditions for the nearly 600 trail runners who arrived in Breckenridge over Labor Day weekend for the 9th Annual Breckenridge Crest Mountain Marathon. The race is known for its scenic course. It is a benefit for the Breckenridge Outdoor Education Center, which brings people with disabilities and special needs into the outdoors. All three races (Marathon, 12.7M, and 5M) cover part of the Tenmile Range above the historic mining town of Breckenridge. A top-notch field, including international mountain runners and nationally known adventure racers, took on the three courses with close to record speed. Scotland’s Angela Mudge, in training for the upcoming World Mountain Running Championships in Alaska, took the overall title for the 5-Mile race in 40:35. Mudge edged out first place male runner Kent Lange of Dillon. The “Tenmile” race (actually 12.7 miles long) is named after the Tenmile Range. This race generated a large, competitive men’s field led by Mark Werner of Boulder. Werner crossed the line in 1:39:46, almost 5 minutes ahead of second-place finisher Zeke Tierman. In the women’s race, Breckenridge resident Kim Eytel dominated the competition, finishing in 2:05:35. Golden resident Darrin Eisman, known across the country as an accomplished trail runner, won the Breckenridge Crest Mountain Marathon (24.5 miles) in 3:37:11. Breckenridge adventure racer and professional mountain biker Monique Mer-

rill won the women’s division of the marathon, proving her multisport endeavors haven’t cost her any running skills. Merrill blew away a tough women’s field in 4:11: 03. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.

Two Masters Records Fall In Colorado Springs Beneke of Lakewood took control of the men’s race early and never looked back. He broke his age group course record from the previous year, finishing in 2:42:46. “I felt pretty good until the last few miles, but I just kept pushing,” he said. Second place finisher Michael Hagen set a new master’s event record of 2:53:17. On the women’s side, Maddy Tormoen of Colorado Springs captured the win and set a new master’s event record of 3:13:02.

The point-to-point course began by following the old Santa Fe Railroad right-of-way (which has now been converted into a soft dirt trail). With an elevation drop from 7300’ in Palmer Lake to 6040’ in Colorado Springs, many runners were misled into thinking the course is conducive to fast times. But once racers left the Sante Fe Trail to run along the river, things started to roll. The marathoners ran just east of the Rampart Range and had fantastic views of the United States Air Force Academy and Pikes Peak. This year’s race served as the Colorado USA Track & Field Marathon Trail Championships, awarding the top three overall finishers prize money. Tim

The Imogene Pass Run began on Main Street in Ouray at 7810’. The start led runners on a mad scramble up the side of several hills. A Kenyan runner - rumor has it that he showed up barefoot and was running on borrowed shoes - sprinted to a big lead by the end of the first mile. He was gradually swept up by the pack and never to be seen by the leaders again. Zach Crandall pulled away on the first part of the climb, leading by almost two minutes by the Upper Camp Bird aid station at 7.65 miles and 11235’. Bernie Boettcher and Michael Olson led the chase. Boettcher and Olson caught Crandall before the 13120’ summit, where Bernie had opened a 24-second gap on Olson. Crandall began to fade and was three minutes back at ten miles. Boettcher had the fastest descent, covering the 7.05 miles and 4300’ in 38: 17. His final winning time of 2:26:15 was almost 8 minutes ahead of the nearest competitor. This was Boettcher’s first win at Imogene after two previous second place finishes. Daren Lacy crossed the summit in sixth place, but covered the descent in 40: 21 to move into second by the finish. Olson faded to fourth, being passed by Keith Hampton of Telluride on the descent. The women’s race turned into a tight battle on the descent. Gretchen Ellis of Los Alamos, NM led by two minutes at the summit, but she faded on the descent and was passed by Najeeby Quinn and Sarah Slaughter. Amy Friedman of Louisville had the fastest descent of the day in 45:38 to place fourth, only 1:19 of the lead. Weather was perfect for the race with temperatures in the low 40’s and overcast skies at the start. Temperatures rose into the 50’s with no wind at the summit.

Volkswagen Mile High City Marathon, 1/2 Marathon, 5K Denver, CO September 14, 2003 343 Finishers - Marathon 547 Finishers - 1/2 Marathon 110 Finishers - 5K An early morning chill met runners of the fourth annual Mile High City Marathon with Denver hitting a record low of 29 degrees on marathon morning. The race began at Civic Center Park at the foot of Colorado’s State Capitol. Marathoners toured 6 Denver neighborhoods and the city’s most popular public parks, including Washington Park, Cheesman Park, and City Park. Heralded as the nation’s highest metropolitan marathon, this year’s event attracted runners from 24 states and 4 countries. One of the biggest winners of the day was not the man who crossed the finish line first. 92-year-old Boulder resident I.A. Butler trained relentlessly for six months with the Boulder Fit team in preparation for the marathon. He started the race at 2 a.m. with his granddaughter and coaches. Butler successfully completed the distance in 9:25:27, walking 21-minute miles. Butler was 23 years older than the next marathon

Prize Money Attracts Deep Field At Governor’s Cup Home Depot Governor’s Cup Denver, CO September 21, 2003 494 Finishers - 10K 411 Finishers - 5K 75 Finishers - 5K Walk The 28th running of the Governor’s Cup proved its worth as one of the state’s premier road races. Serving as the USA Track & Field Colorado 10K Championship, more than 30 invited athletes competed for $9,000 in prize money. The 10K started at Place Middle School and followed the Cherry Creek Bike Path to Lincoln Avenue, where it headed north to the finish line at the State Capitol. Fifteen runners sprinted past the first mile in 4:50 and another 10 in 5:00. This was no slouch of a 10K! Aurora’s Peter Tanui and Centennial’s Jonah Rono

pushed the pace along the Cherry Creek Bike Path. Gilbert Rutto, Kristian Agnew, and Chris England (all of Boulder) stayed close but could not match the pace of the two front runners. Tanui eventually pulled away for a convincing win in 29:40. The first place earned him a $2,000 cash prize. Rono had to hold off a surging Rutto for second. Both athletes were timed in 30:10. In the women’s race, Sarah Toland of Boulder ran through a lingering hamstring injury to win in 35:08. She was unable to do any track workouts leading up to the race. Martha Tenorio of Boulder finished just nine seconds off the pace. Nicole Kulikov of Ft. Collins (35:35), Katie Blackett of Boulder (36:07), and Kelly Ryan (36:09) helped make one of the deepest women’s fields of the year.

Larson Sets New Record at Boulder Backroads broke Peter Tanui’s course record, winning in 1:06:31, a bit more than two minutes up on Andrew Letheby. Lilly Guerra, a native of Ecuador and sister of Olympian Silvio Guerra, bested American 1/2 marathon women’s champ Colleen De Reuck in the women’s race. Her winning time of 1:19:41, was two seconds faster than De Reuck, as she grabbed the win in the last few strides. 2500 cans of Guinness and 250 pounds of Nestles chocolate greeted runners at the finish line... a perfect ending to a well planned race.

Scott Larson finishes the Boulder Backroads 1/2 Marathon in record time

Nike ACG Boulder Backroads Marathon, 1/2 Marathon Boulder, CO September 28, 2003 642 Finishers - Marathon 1846 Finishers - 1/2 Marathon The Boulder Backroads Marathon had a fun, party-like atmosphere on race morning as runners lined up to the tunes of the Colorado Irish Pipe Band. It was a perfect morning for racing with sunny skies and temperatures in the 40’s. The race began at the Boulder Reservoir in northeast Boulder and traveled dirt country roads through the outskirts of town. Since it began five years ago, Backroads has seen its numbers grow steadily each year. In

fact, race organizers ran out of bib numbers for the half marathon because last minute registration far exceeded their expectations. In the marathon, 42-year-old Laura Bruess of Boulder led the women’s race with a time of 3:14:31, taking two minutes off the time she ran in the 2002 Backroads, and outdistancing her closest female competitor, second place finisher Erica Pedron of Aurora, by more than seven minutes. Men’s winner Jason Smith, 29, also of Boulder, won with a time of 2:46:25, with Steve Krebs of Denver clocking 2:49:01 to place second for the second year in a row. In the half marathon, Scott Larson of Louisville

Scenery Abounds At Danielesque

Start of the Danielesque Trail Marathon and 1/2 Marathon

Danielesque Trail Marathon (46K) & 1/2 Marathon (23K) White Ranch Open Space Golden, CO October 4, 2003 18 Finishers - Marathon 35 Finishers - 1/2 Marathon

The

2nd

annual

Danielesque Trail Marathon took place at White Ranch Open Space Park in Golden. This is not a run for those who love large, loud races with entertainment and crowds. Rather, it’s a low key trail event held in memory of Daniel Rosenfeld. Race director Penny Rosenfeld says

Daniel was an avid trail runner who had run the Leadville 100 and the Pikes Peak Marathon. About five dozen runners lined up on race morning to share in Daniel’s zest for life and love of trail running. Dave Mackey captured the overall win in the marathon in 4:22:50. He was followed closely behind by Ryan Cooper. Lori Cooper finished the run in 5:17:47 to grab the women’s title. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16.

Course Records Shattered At Easy Street

Easy Street Marathon CooperSmith’s 1/2 Marathon Ft. Collins, CO October 5, 2003 288 Finishers - Marathon 992 Finishers - 1/2 Marathon By John Lonsdale

Both the men’s and women’s course records were smashed in this year’s Easy Street Marathon. Daniel Shaw is the new owner of the men’s record. He ran unchallenged to win in 2:28:25. Shaw has a sea level PR of 2:26 and used the race as a tune up for an attempt to make the Olympic Marathon trials at the Houston Marathon. Second place went to last years champion Peter Williams in 2: 43:43. Williams was also the first masters finisher. The women’s course record went to first time

marathoner Elizabeth Roodell, who ran cross country and track for CSU. She won in 3:08:53. Second and third place honors went to Kim Sommer and Tania Pacev, who ran 3:11:01 and 3: 14:41 respectively. The men’s half marathon was fast and deep. The first 8 men all ran under 1: 10. Charles Kamindo of Kenya, who is training in Denver, won in 1:04:23. Unfortunately an oversight by one of the cyclists caused the first 8 men to cut the course short by 500 meters, effectively negating their times. A meeting with the first 8 finishers quickly established a consensus amongst them that the top 3 money places would not have changed had they run the correct route. This error marred what was arguably one of the fastest half marathon

fields assembled in Colorado. Second place went to Aaron Carrizales of Greeley who ran 1:06:02. Aaron finished second in this year’s Bolder Boulder Citizens Race. Leaving no doubt who was the class of the field in the men’s master division was Peter Fleming of Scotland, who trains in Colorado Springs. He ran away from the masters field to win in a time of 1:07:29. In the women’s division, first place honors went to Ft. Collins’ Kim Vecchio with a time of 1:22:26. Vecchio is on the Easy Street Marathon committee and had helped cone the course before running. After she picked up her first place check for $500 she went back out and helped pick up the cones! The womens masters $250 went to defending

champion and national class marathoner Kim Jones, who ran 1:27:00. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15.

Rocky Mountain Festival For Runners A Hit

Durango Marathon, 1/2 Marathon, 10K Telegraph Trail 50K & 25K Durango, CO October 11 & 12, 2003 271 Finishers - Marathon 200 Finishers - 1/2 Marathon 99 Finishers - 10K 45 Finishers - 50K Trail 41 Finishers - 25K Trail By Adam W. Chase

Usually the word “smorgasbord,” when used in the context of runners, conjures up images of carbohydrateladen platters. Not so when it came to Durango on October 11-12 and the smorgasbord offered by the Rocky Mountain Festival for Runners. The weekend offered something – actually everything – for everyone with 50K and 25K trail races and a road marathon, half marathon, 10K, and 5K. In only its second year, Durango’s running event has grown to become one of Colorado’s biggest race destinations. All tolled, there were approximately 1,000 runners who haled from 30 different states and the field was a diverse one, boasting all ages and abilities. The common denominator was a general sense of enjoyment Continued from page 16 1.

with the beauty of the old west, the hospitality of enough volunteers to make for one helper for every three runners, and perfect weather. The Telegraph 25K and 50K races, which were aptly run on Telegraph Trail, were attended by some of Colorado’s top ultrarunners. The camaraderie was enough that it seemed like a reunion as the runners chatted while competing on a course that ran along the Animas River Trail, through the Fort Lewis College campus, and into the scenic hills above Durango. This was the first year for the trail race and, unfortunately the course markings were a bit lacking, causing many to run astray. Despite the fact that many of the runners had difficulties navigating the course, none of the racers complained as they helped each other figure out which route to take and sorted themselves out so that those who ran fastest won their respective races. The road events on Sunday began with the marathon and its field of nearly 300. This year’s pace was well off of last year’s, but the race was still competitive, especially given Durango’s altitude and 1.

Race For The Cure Attracts Record Crowd

Jane Hagan is the first survivor to cross the finish line

Komen Race For The Cure Pepsi Center, Denver, CO October 12, 2003 60,247 Finishers Denver’s Race for the Cure drew a record crowd, with more than 60,000 runners and walkers packing the streets around the Pepsi Center. It’s the biggest race in Colorado and the second largest Race for the Cure in the nation, topped only by Washington D.C. Under sunny skies and cool temperatures, a 5K women’s run kicked off the early morning events at the Pepsi Center. The course traveled along Speer Boulevard, down 29th Street and Federal Boulevard, then across Colfax Avenue to the finish line. The women’s event was followed by a 5K co-ed run and a 1-mile family walk. Race participants dressed in pink hats, t-shirts and ribbons, turning the race course into a sea of color. Some wild costumes included pink-dyed hair and pink running tights. Several thousand of the runners and walkers were breast cancer survivors who wore hats with one pink ribbon for each year they had beat breast cancer. Others ran in support of a mother,

18: November/December 2003

sister or friend touched by the disease. Course entertainment was added to this year’s run, making for a more festive atmosphere. Hazel Miller headlined the free post-race concert. The three races raised more than two million dollars for breast cancer research, screenings and treatment programs. 75% of the money will stay in Colorado, and the other 25% will benefit national and international programs. Colorado’s support for the Race for the Cure is impressive compared to other large, metropolitan areas, which don’t draw half the crowd. Race organizers say that more than 3,000 runners registered on the morning of the race. Race attendance is also boosted by a unique fundrasing effort called “Sleep in for the Cure.” More than 2,000 people signed up for the “Sleep in for the Cure” by paying the $30 registration fee in exchange for a race t’shirt. More than 100 cities across the nation host runs to raise money for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. The participation for Denver’s Race for the Cure has spiked since its first year in 1993 when just 3,500 people ran and walked. Last year the race numbers swelled to 54,000 people. 1.

Age Group Experts Masters Ace Kim Jones Still Winning

One of the fastest marathoners in U.S. history, Kim Jones has run 17 marathons under 2:33. Now, at age 45, the Fort Collins resident is hoping for another fast marathon to help her qualify for the Olympic Marathon Trials. She’ll need to run 2:48 and she’s putting in 95-mile weeks to try to get there. She’ll find out if she can do it at the California International Marathon in December. “I know I’ll never run the times I did as an open runner, so it takes something special to get me out there.”

She says coaching has helped “rekindle my fire to run and motivate me to train.” Jones started coaching a year ago and currently trains 15 runners with Anaerobic Management. She says it’s great to help other runners achieve their potential. Jones is making a comeback after disappearing from the racing scene for a few years. In a devastating accident two months before her 40th birthday, a large sign fell on her foot, leaving her unable to run for more than a year. She says it took several years to be able to run without pain and to get back into racing shape. Now that she’s healthy, she says, “I’ve been eating right and taking care of myself.” The hard work has paid off. She recently ran the Easy Street Half Marathon and was the first master with a time of 1:27:00. During a typical training week, Jones runs hard on three days and easy for four. “It takes a little longer to recover now,” she laughs. Her weekly speed workout consists of 800 meter repeats in 2:50 and mile repeats at 5:50 pace. Plus, she’ll go for an hour of easy running later the same day. Jones says she loves to run her speed workouts with her daughter, a 23-year-old student at the University of Colorado. On a long run day, Jones says she will run for 2 ½ to 3 hours with part of the run at tempo pace, then she’ll run for another hour that night to try to get in 30

miles for the day. Her favorite place for long runs is Red Stone, a soft, dirt road in Fort Collins. “You just roll up hill for 6 miles and turn and roll down. It’s not too stressful on the body.” Kim Jones ran a marathon PR of 2:26:40 in 1991 and at the age of 39, she ran a 2:31 marathon. While some of that amazing speed is lost, her relentless training and passion for the sport is helping her post times that most runners will never see.

Hellybuck Wins Twin Cities Eddy Hellebuyck dashed to the finish line in 2:12:47 to win the Twin Cities Marathon October 5th in Minneapolis. The 42-year-old surprised the crowds by outkicking the two Kenyan runners who were expected to win. The marathon victory earned Hellebuyck $30,000, his biggest win ever, and a new national masters marathon record. Hellebuyck lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico and does much of his training at 6,000 feet. He is a native of Belgium and a veteran of more than 90 marathons.

High School Standout Sets A School Record

Kyle Carney has had an incredible cross country season. He’s only a junior, but is the top runner and team captain for Dakota Ridge High School’s Cross Country Team in Littleton. The 16-year-old set a new school record midseason by running a blazing 16: 06. He also outpaced the pack several times during the season to capture the win. Carney didn’t start his high school career as a runner. He played soccer, not cross country, during his freshmen

fall season at Dakota Ridge. He fell in love with running during track season that spring. Since then, he’s devoted more time to running and his times have improved. Carney has personal bests of 16:06 for 5K, 9:51 for two miles, 4:33 for the mile and 2:01 for 800 meters. Carney says that building a high base mileage for endurance and being familiar with the cross country courses have helped him this year. “My racing style has been different this year. I’ve been able to take

www.coloradorunnermag.com

it out harder and throw in more surges.” Carney’s coach says the junior has a bright future ahead of him and is a big asset to the team. “He’s a great kid to have around. He always has a positive attitude.” Carney has his sights set on lowering his mile time this year during track season. Next year, he’d like to break the 16 minute barrier for the 5K and place in the top five during the state cross country championships.

Avoiding Injury

11 Ways to Cure Heel Pain by Dr. Ken Sheridan

Runners, particularly distance runners, commonly suffer from plantar fascitis, an inflammation of the plantar fascia of the foot. The plantar fascia helps hold up the arch along the inside of the foot. When running, we strike the ground with 2 to 5 times our body weight at approximately 1500 foot falls per mile. With every foot strike the arch drops, which stretches the plantar fascia. The hallmark symptom of plantar fascitis is sharp pain underneath the heel, especially during the first 10-20 steps out of bed in the morning. Plantar fascitis may have intrinsic and extrinsic causes, or a combination of both. Extrinsic causes are training errors, such as too much mileage or speed work. Intrinsic causes are related to faulty foot biomechanics, resulting in overpronation. SYMPTOM RELIEF

1. Icing the painful area will reduce inflammation more efficiently

than oral anti-inflammatories. Apply ice after a run while tissues are recovering. a. Ice packs – 20 minutes on, 40 minutes off. Repeat 3-5 times a day. b. Ice massage – fill a paper cup with water and freeze it. Peel back the cup and massage the ice directly on your skin for 8-10 minutes, off for 40 minutes. Repeat 3-5 times a day.

2. Compression Massage: Rolling your foot back and forth over an object like a golf ball helps break up adhesions and disburse swelling. Try an empty glass soda bottle, stick it in the freezer and use for massage as necessary. Perform several times a day for 5-10 minutes.

3. 90° Night Splint: Sleeping on our stomachs causes our toes to

point down, shortening our plantar fascia. The first few steps in the morning stretches the fascia, tearing the scar tissue. Splinting the ankle at 90° while sleeping keeps the fascia from healing in a shortened position at night and decreases healing time. CORRECTING TRAINING PROBLEMS

4. Active Rest – Cross training will allow you to train while taking the pounding stress off your injured fascia. It will also enable you to maintain your aerobic base and prevent you from driving your significant other crazy with your grumpiness!

5.

Frequency – Recovery time increases with age, so you may need to take more days off than you used to.

6. Intensity – Try not to follow a speed session with long or steep downhills, which increase stress at heel strike.

7. Duration – A general rule is not to increase your long slow run

by more than 1-2 miles per week, or your total weekly mileage by more than 10% per week. 8. Type – Softer surfaces like packed dirt are a good alternative.

26: November/December 2003

Running on packed dirt trails is the best, let’s give it a factor of 1, asphalt would have a factor of 2, concrete a 3. CORRECTING FOOT BIOMECHANICS

8. Stretch!!: I’ve been treating

runners for over 13 years now and I have yet to meet a runner that says “I think I stretch too much.” Stretching your calf muscles should always follow your runs, but as the most dense muscle tissue in your body, they should be stretched frequently throughout the day.

9. Strengthen: Heel raises are

the only exercises that have been shown to strengthen the structures that support the arch.

10.

Proper Footwear: Overpronation can often be corrected by changing to a “motion control” or “stability” shoe. These shoes commonly have a “dual density midsole”. The sole will have cushioning along the medial side (inside) and under the arch of the shoe that is stiffer than the cushioning towards the lateral (outside) of the foot.

11. Orthotics: Orthotics are foot

beds placed in the shoe that are designed to reduce or eliminate overpronation and the stretch it places on the fascia. These can vary in price from $15.00 to $500.00 and are beyond the scope of this article. As a provider of custom orthotics, I will give you the following advice: a. Not everyone needs orthotics. b. All orthotics are not the same c. Your orthotics are only as good as the casting procedure used. Plantar fascitis can be a complex problem not often resolved simply by rest. Early evaluation and proper treatment are beneficial. Prevention through stretching and strengthening are invaluable. Dr. Ken Sheridan is a local runner who practices at ActiveCare Chiropractic & Rehab in Golden, a clinic specializing in sports injuries.

Hit The Dirt... Trail Review Devil’s Canyon Trail / Devil’s Canyon Overlook Fruita, CO By Christopher Schnittker

Devil’s Canyon loops through a striking and beautiful sandstone canyon. It travels along a creek across the canyon and through juniper trees. An unfinished and deserted cabin can be seen at the halfway point of the loop. Don’t be surprised if you encounter several horses, or even a donkey. The Devil’s Canyon Overlook Trail takes you to a beautiful overlook of the Grand Valley, Devil’s Canyon and The Flume Creek Canyon. The DT/ST trail travels trough junipers to Flume Creek Canyon where you can access the Pollock Bench Trail and its canyon. The D3 signs designate the trail for Devil’s Canyon and the d1 signs represent the trail for the Devil’s Overlook.

Getting There:

From I-70, travel west from Grand Junction to the Fruita exit (Highway 340/Exit 19). Travel southwest on Highway 340 for one mile to Kings View Road. Turn right (west) onto Kings View Road and go just over one mile to the Devil’s Canyon sign. Turn left at the sign and park a quarter mile up. The trailhead is at the end of the road near the gate.

From the cabin, follow the trail as it winds up and down through the canyon back to the base of the creek bed. Make your way back to the parking area along D3/D1.

6.6M (Devil’s Canyon Overlook):

From the parking lot, follow the D1 signs along the main DT road to the trail junction. The trail continues to the right where you will reach the D4 and No Mountain Biking sign. Continue on the DT road, then veer left at the D1 sign. Keep going along the DT road into a small canyon where it makes a left and switchbacks up on the way to the overlook. The trail turns right through the junipers to the top elevation of 5,200 feet. Here the trail turns right as it slides down to the Flume Creek Canyon Trail junction. If you wish to continue longer, you can add Flume Creek or the Pollock Bench trails.

Or, you can head back the same way you came out.

For The Expert:

If you wish for a longer trail run, you have a couple of options. You can add these two runs together and get a good 14 miler. If you decided to do this, I would suggest doing the Canyon Loop first, but you can do them the other way. For an even longer option, just add the Flume Creek Canyon or Pollock Bench Trails onto the end of the Overlook run. You could run either of these as an extra out and back and cover as much distance as you wish. Christopher Schnittker is the owner of Running Outfitters in Grand Junction. He also co-authored The Grand Junction Trails and Camping Guide. He can be reached through his website www.outdoorguru.com.

7M Loop (Devil’s Canyon Loop):

From the parking lot, follow the DT road to the D4/D1 junction. Veer left on D1. Continue on D1 a short distance to a left at D3. On D3, you will cross a wooden bridge and turn right into the creek bed. Continue up along the creek bed to the next trail junction. Make a left at the D3 trail sign. The trail becomes increasingly difficult due to the increase in elevation. This trail makes its way up the left/east side of the creek. You will travel up and down through the canyon. You reach the cabin at the halfway point. Want to see your favorite trail run featured in Colorado Runner ? Tell us about it and we may print your article in one of our future editions.

Get To Know

Kulak Wins Grand Slam Title by Jessica Griffiths

J

Joe Kulak celebrates with his family after a victory at the Vermont 100.

oe Kulak is a 35-year-old environmental insurance agent dressed in a business suit and talking on a cell phone in the lobby of his downtown Denver business office. He doesn’t look like what I expected from a hardcore ultramarathoner who just smashed Ian Torrence’s Grand Slam of Ultrarunning record by racing four 100-mile runs in just ten weeks. He’s not even limping. Yet it’s true. This is the same man who collapsed at the finish line of the Leadville 100 after refusing to drop out, despite the fact that he couldn’t keep any food or water down for the final 30 miles. This is clearly a man with determination fiercer than I can imagine. The Grand Slam of Ultrarunning began in 1986, the early years of 100-mile trail racing. This year, the series consisted of the Western States 100 Mile Endurance Run in early June, the Vermont 100 in July, the Leadville 100 in August and the Wasatch Front 100 in early September.

28: November/December 2003

Kulak ran the four races in 75 hours, 7 minutes, more than three hours faster than the record set last year. When asked about the record, Kulak said, “I feel pretty good about it. I have a lot of internal pride.” This is clearly a modest guy. Earning the record was anything but easy. Kulak has endured a tough season with multiple injuries. First he suffered an Achilles heel injury before the Grand Slam series began, then he injured his IT band during the Vermont 100. “I was barely walking four days after the race, and I couldn’t jog for eleven days,” he recalls.

Massage, stretching and rest helped him work through the problems. Of course, a few injuries were only part of the battle in Kulak’s quest for the Grand Slam record. He started training in January, building his weekly base mileage as high as 100 miles a week. A typical week included one long, hilly run of 20 to 30 miles, four 90-minute trail runs, one speed workout on the treadmill and an occasional run on the pavement. Kulak lives near Green Mountain in Lakewood so he typically trains on the trails there. He wanted to add a few road runs to his training this year because he thought it could help him conquer long downhills. In training, Kulak says he’s diligent about listening to his body’s needs for fluid replacement, sodium and calories. During Western States, he took at least 1,000 milligrams of salt an hour. But, as temperatures soared to 104 degrees, he still suffered from cramping. Kulak also ran into problems during the Leadville 100.

www.coloradorunnermag.com


Although he tried to continuously replenish his body with fluids and calories during the race, he suffered from severe stomach problems. He says the race reminded him of a tough lesson. “For the last 30 miles of the race you’ve got to put blinders on and not get upset or worried about what’s going to happen. It’s never a matter of if something will happen, but when.” Despite the physical problems Kulak battled, it was mentally recovering from each race that became Kulak’s biggest hurdle this year. He kicked off the season in the spring with the Niwok 100K, then ran the Old Dominion 100 Mile Run to test his fitness. He felt solid during Western States and Vermont, but started to lose his enthusiasm by Leadville. “Mentally, the hardest part became toeing the starting line for each race. The last 50 miles started to get easier but the first 50 kept getting harder.” Kulak finished his season with a fifth place finish at the Angeles Crest 100 in late September. By finishing these six 100 mile races, Kulak set a new record for an ultrarunning series known as The Last Great Race. There have only been 27 people to run the six 100 mile races in the same year. “It has been a long, adventuresome summer full of fond memories. It will be a restful winter!” Kulak has run more than 35 ultramarathons. He’d only run two marathons before signing up for his first 100 seven years ago. He’s used to people thinking that he’s crazy. Even his family thinks his hobby is strange. “I can see

where people think it’s crazy. There’s something eccentric about pushing your body beyond what’s healthy for a long period of time. It’s downright stupid at times.” And because Kulak works in a conservative business office, he says he doesn’t publicize his victories. He says that most people in his office know that he’s a runner, but they don’t know the details. “The only thing that would give away what I did over the weekend is that I limp around the office and drink excessive amounts of coffee trying to stay awake.” Kulak says he tries not to take vacation time to prepare for his races. He usually flies to the race on Friday and flies home Sunday night. Kulak says he’s tired from a long season of racing and is ready to take time off this winter to spend time with his pregnant wife Kristen. He’s excited to start remodeling their home for a nursery. Kristen told him that she was pregnant with their first child the night before the Leadville 100, giving Kulak a lot to think about during the race. She got her first sonogram right before the Wasatch Front 100 in September. “I couldn’t tell who was more nauseous during the race – me or Kristen!” Kulak said. The couple told their family about the pregnancy before the start of the Angeles Crest 100. Now Kulak says he is glad to get back to a normal schedule and race less. He found this season to be emotionally and physically draining and wants to focus his attention on his developing family. Yet don’t expect Kulak to take too much time

Kulak’s Race Times Old Dominion 100 June 7, 1st Place 17:00:28 Western States 100 June 28, 6th Place 18:14:59 Vermont 100 July 19, 1st Place 14:55:26 Leadville Trail 100 August 16, 5th Place 20:03:25 Wasatch Front 100 September 6, 2nd Place 21:53:10 Angeles Crest 100 September 27, 5th Place 22:16:21 Grand Slam Time: 75:07:00 Total Cumulative Time: 114:23:49 away from the ultrarunning scene. His idea of scaling back his training schedule is to only run two 100 mile races next year!

The Lighter Side

You Know You’re A Marathon Parent If...

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8

You have your children in training to work up to biking 20 miles so they can follow you on your long runs.

Your kids have a favorite energy bar flavor and electrolyte drink. When you announce that the family is going on a hike, the kids show up with full fanny packs, water bottles, energy bars and flashlights.

You have strapped your child into a baby jogger for more than two hours. You could feel like you’re at death’s door but you won’t DNF in front of your children.

Your six-year-old knows the difference between a 10K and a half marathon. Race directors are now adding $10 to your entry fee to cover the cost of feeding your children and emergency babysitting services.

You caution your children about the hazards of bragging about mom’s latest race to their friends and neighbors. “You don’t want them to think mommy is crazy, do you?”

9 10 11 12 13

You have dragged your child to a race when you know you shouldn’t have. “It

looked like he could be coming down with the chicken pox, but we already drove 200 miles!” Your children can be overheard cautioning their friends about the fat grams in the candy bar they just ate.

Whenever you announce an exciting family vacation, the first question is, “Where is the race?” Your kids decide if they want to attend your next marathon based on the food that will be served at the finish. Your four-year-old insists that the distance of his latest kids fun run was a marathon.
