The Fast Lane

Shayne Culpepper celebrates her 5000 victory with husband Alan and son Cruz. Lafayette’s Shayne Culpepper joined her husband Alan on the 2004 Olympic team by winning the 5000 meter race. Culpepper, who was an Olympian in 2000 at 1500 meters, spent most of the race tucked behind race favorite Marla Runyan. Runyan, who is legally blind, had not been beaten by an American at 5000 meters in three years. After a pedestrian first lap, covered in 79 seconds, newly turned pro Shalane Flanagan, a Boulder native, took the lead and began to run 73-75 second laps. Behind Flanagan were Amy Rudolph, Carrie Tollefson, Runyan, Culpepper, and Olympic marathon team member Jen Rhines. The race stayed this way for the next two miles as they passed 1600 in 4:58, 3K in 9:14, 3200 in 9:51, and 4K in 12:14. Over the next 400 meters, Runyan and Culpepper moved into third and fourth, dropping Tollefson and Rhines off the back of the pack. With 400 to go (hit in 14:05), Flanagan started to push. Runyan passed her on the backstretch with Culpepper in tow. As they rounded the final turn with 100 meters to go, Runyan had a 5 meter lead and looked to be holding form. But Culpepper found another gear 20 meters out and leaned for the win, beating Runyan by .07 seconds, 15:07.41 to 15:07.48. Culpepper and Runyan had run the last lap in a blazing 62 seconds. Flanagan grabbed the third spot in 15:10.32. “This was one of the hardest races of my life. I had to dig really deep. It’s a dream come true, after 2000 was so disappointing,” Culpepper said. “I knew Marla had a great kick, so I tried to save something for the last 100 meters. You have to be ready on that day. To win with that time is such a joy.” “I knew she was there, but I didn’t know she was right there,” Runyan said. “I couldn’t do much about it.” Flanagan commented, “You have these dreams about making the team before you come here, but when it actually happens, you still don’t know how to react. Today is such a special day and it’s so exciting. This is my first Olympic Trials, and to make the team, it reminds you why you ran all those miles.” Colorado Track and Field Olympic Team Members: Alan Culpepper, Lafayette, Marathon Shayne Culpepper, Lafayette, 5K Colleen DeReuck, Boulder, Marathon Kevin Eastler, Fort Collins, 20K Race Walk Matt Hemingway, Littleton, High Jump Casey Malone, Fort Collins, Discus Throw Dathan Ritzenhein, Boulder, 10K

Coloradans Shine at Olympic Trials

Boulder native Shalane Flanagan leads the 5000.

Former Alamosa resident Deena Kastor congratulates Durango native Elva Dryer after the two placed first and second in the 10,000. Kastor ran uncontested to finish in 31:09.65. Western State grad Dryer fought for second in 31:58.14.


Carbondale’s Carrie Messner finished third in the women’s steeplechase in 9:50.70. “I definitely plan on sticking with the steeplechase. This is my first year of running the event. I love it. It’s a lot of fun. It gives us something else to do besides running in a circle around the track.” The women’s steeple is currently not an Olympic event.

University of Colorado graduate Jorge Torres advanced to the men’s 5000 meter final. Torres finished seventh in 13:41.79. “I wasn’t in the shape I needed to be in today, so I have to be realistic about how I ran. I tried to go with the pack, but I had some 66-second laps and they got away after 3K. The last 1.5 laps, I tried to close some, but didn’t have enough. I have to accept my place for what it is, and hopefully I still have a few Olympic games ahead of me.” www.coloradorunnermag.com




The 1500 meter winners celebrate: Rober Meyers, Alan Webb and Charlie Gruber.

M

ullen High School graduate Charlie Gruber grabbed second place in the 1500 meters, to realize his American dream, while Longmont’s Jason Lunn came up short after a spike gashed his foot. The race got off to a good start with the first 400 meters passing in 59 seconds. Alan Webb of Reston, Virginia slowly pushed the pace up a notch, pulling the field through the 800 in 1:

57. At this point, Webb sprinted for about 200 meters, putting 30 meters between him and the rest of the field. Gruber was quick to respond and pulled up to second with former Stanford Cardinal Michael Stember. As Stember started to fade, Rob Myers, the USATF indoor champion, went to Gruber’s side. Webb ran his own race and was rewarded with the win in 3:36.13. Gruber

held off Myers for second, two ticks of the clock behind Webb. “When Alan made his strong move at 800 meters, that was one of the hardest, strongest moves I’ve ever seen in a race,” Gruber said. “African runners treat it like ‘Africa against the world’. We need to do that too. We need to treat it like ‘Americans against the world’, and not me against Alan. In the U.S., we need to come together to see how we can run against the world.” Jason Lunn finished fifth in 3:40.81 after getting spiked and running the race with one of his shoes half off. “I was having problems with a shoe today and I was changing my stride to try and fix it, but couldn’t quite get it worked out. I came in fit and was ready to go. It’s too bad I didn’t get the Olympic “A” standard a few weeks ago in Europe. I’m the defending champion, but all I could do was run for second today. I didn’t expect Alan to open up such a big gap, even though everyone knew he would make a move. I figured it would be after the 400 or as late as 600 to go. I haven’t seen a move like that since Gabe Jennings did it in 2000.” Gruber secured his spot on the 2004 U.S. Olympic Team by running 3:34.71 at the KBC Night of Athletics in Heusden-Zolder, Belgium on July 31st. Gruber’s time easily surpassed the Olympic A standard of 3:36.20 and placed him 10th in a race won by world record holder Hicham El Guerrouj.

Wellington’s Bryan Berryhill and Longmont’s Jason Lunn kick to the finish of a quarterfinal heat in the men’s 1500 meters. Berryhill, a Colorado State University graduate, did not advance to the final. Jason Lunn, who recently moved to Longmont from California, finished fifth in the final.

Kevin Eastler, Tim Seaman and Josh Nunn celebrate after the 20K racewalk. Durango native Josh Nunn finished second in the 20,000 meter racewalk in 1:26:23 to make the Olympic team. “I’m certainly thrilled to make the team. This is a dream come true. I’ve waited all my life for this,” Nunn said. “I remember watching the 1984 Olympics on television and I knew I wanted to be a part of it.” Kevin Eastler of Aurora finished third in the racewalk to earn a spot on the Olympic team. Eastler, an Air Force Academy graduate, walked the course in 1:28:49, to average seven minutes, 10 seconds per mile. “It’s a great feeling to make the team. It’s been a dream of mine for a long time. It really hasn’t sunk in yet. In the next few days, the sense of elation will sink in.” He added, “It wasn’t my best day, but I finished the race. I had to finish. Everyone at this level is very competitive, so I feel good about finishing the race today.”

made the U.S. Olympic team by placing well in a series of races. Hunter Kemper of Colorado Springs qualified for the team by finishing as the first American, second overall, in the Race to Athens in Honolulu. Also training in Colorado Springs, Andy Potts qualified for the 2004 Games by finishing 11th overall at the ITU Triathlon World Championships in Portugal. Susan Williams of Littleton made her first Olympic team by grabbing the spot as second American in the Race to Athens. And it’s no surprise that Alta, Wyoming’s Barb Lindquist made the Olympic team after being ranked number one in the world since March, 2003.

Liberty High School graduate Ashley Owens

of Colorado Springs sprinted for gold at the IAAF World Junior Track and Field Championships in Grosseto, Italy on July 14th. UNLV-bound Owens ran a wind-legal personal best time of 11.13 to earn the title of the world’s fastest junior. Owen’s time was the second fastest at a World Junior Championship. “This is really cool actually to win my first world championship after finishing fourth at Pan Am Juniors last year,” Owens said. “At the start, I focused on my cue which was all I could think about. After that everything felt natural as it always happens. This was a good closure to my high school career.” Owens also won the USA Junior Championships 100 meter race on June 26th. In other high school news, at the Golden West High School meet in Sacramento, Katelyn Kaltenbach placed second in the mile in 4:45.97 and Morgan Schultz was fifth in the 3200 meter run in 10:34.84.

Ashley Owens, shown in bib 740, wins the World Junior 100.

Boulder’s Dave Mackey debuted in the 100 mile

distance at the Western States Endurance Run on June 27th. Mackey finished second in 16 hours, 30 minutes and 17 seconds. Parker’s Hal Koerner placed third in 17:17:16 and Lakewood’s Joe Kulak raced to a fifth place finish in 17:39:36. In fifteenth, Todd Holmes of Lakewood finished in 19:09:13. Scott Jurek of Seattle won the race in a course record time of 15 hours, 36 minutes and 27 seconds. The Western States Endurance Run begins in Squaw Valley, California and runners climb 2,550’ in the first four miles.

qualified for the British Olympic Team in the steeplechase. Chaston flew to Britain for the meet and it paid off handsomely when he qualified for his third Olympic games. The Cardiff-born veteran, who had come out of retirement after a move to the U.S. gave him a new lease of life, beat off competition from rivals 14 years his junior to finish first in the 3000 meter steeplechase. “This is what I came back to do and I’m absolutely thrilled to have done it,” said 35-year-old Chaston, who is a real estate agent in Colorado Springs.

Age Group Experts

Born To Run

Catching Up With Maureen Roben by Jeff Recker

Roben runs in the 1983 Virginia 10 Mile.

“I’m at Boston, my first Boston, running along thinking this isn’t too bad, but twenty-two miles and six steps later I hit the wall. I was delirious and I wanted to drop out. I tried to drop out but the crowd was thick and pushed me back on the course. I began running the wrong way!” She said this and slapped her thigh, amused. 10

September/October 2004

That’s the thing about Maureen. She’d rather tell you about the miscues that occasionally spotted her stellar career, which at its height in 1987, earned her the number one marathon ranking among American women and landed her on the cover of Runners World magazine, than about the time she beat the top Americans at the most prestigious 20k in the country just a few short months after she began running. Her fallibility makes her laugh. It’s then that she’s comfortable. It’s then that I understand what makes her so laudable and in demand among area runners in search of a coach. Maureen is approachable. Even as we sit here at Starbucks, her son Tyler by her side, we’re interrupted by an older woman who asks, “Are you still running?” Maureen, 48, and retired from world class competition, laughs. She’s comfortable, yet this nebulous question makes her pause before responding. Running? Competing? At what level? There are a lot of possible answers but she simply chooses the easiest one. “Yes, all the time.” Maureen is engaging. She is a natural leader. I’m all too aware of her celebrity status among area runners. Again, it’s her smile that comes easily, her approachability. The two say goodbye and we’re back to talking about her role as a coach these days, which includes a new venture coaching a few dozen kids which culminated with a fun summer track meet. “The program kind of found me,” she admits. “Coaching adults led me to coaching their kids. It’s very rewarding.” Maureen talks a lot about the heart-felt rewards inherent in coaching and supporting those that have put their faith in her over the years. She makes no distinction between coaching a top-notch runner or a beginner. “It’s all about helping people achieve their individual goals.” Still the holder of the women’s Colorado record time in the half marathon (1:14:08 – altitude) she finds that coaching, and other commitments to the sport, is a full time job. In addition to being a mother of two, she heads up the Denver chapter of Leukemia’s Team in Training which encompasses over two hundred runners. She also offers individual coaching to dozens of others, meeting them at the track for Tuesday and Wednesday workouts. Throw in the new children’s program, the Platte River Trail Half Marathon and Buckhorn Exchange Relay, which she is co-race director, occasional speaking engagements, and her plate is full. She’s fortunate to have the help and support of others and credits them with allowing her to be so involved. There are eight other coaches for TNT. Alan Lind, an exceptional runner in his own right, shares responsibilities for the Platte River Trail Half Marathon, and Anna Hettinger is her sidekick for the new children’s program. “All of ‘this’ was born from a little five mile race I did twenty-five years ago.” She seems both enamored and a bit surprised by the evolution of her career. In 1978 she was working at a health club that hosted that race. Maureen was an accomplished swimmer then, but had never run a foot race. “I doubted that I could run five miles,” she says unabashed. But half way through the race someone shouted to her that she was running in second place. A friend from the gym was running with her, as was the pre-race plan, and she turned to him and asked, “do you mind if I go on up ahead? I’d like to win this.” For her victory she won a pair of running shoes that quickly replaced the court shoes she wore that day. A few months later she found herself on the starting line at Elby’s 20k in Wheeling, with the top women distance runners in the country. A victory at Elby’s earned her recognition among the country’s elite. “I was pretty nervous going into that race,” she recalls. “The


airline had overbooked the flight and I was relieved that I wouldn’t be able to go.” She began to leave the airport when her husband-to-be, Rex, heard her name being called to board. Reluctantly, she toed the line with legends like Patti Lyons, who Maureen points out as an intimidating presence back then. It’s in talking with Maureen and hearing these stories I’m reminded of why she’s such a popular coach. Her stories are similar to all of ours. She shares the same fears and concerns that we all share. She reflects on those she enjoyed running with and those she dreaded. She admires the legends that are household names, pointing out the dominance and greatness of Grete Weitz, Ingrid Kristiansen, and Joan Benoit, her contemporaries. And something most of us can relate to, she was never tracked to be a runner, rather starting her career late. Of course, she went on to reach the highest level of the sport, something few of us can relate to, yet something we’ve all dreamed about. In a sense, she’s a rag to riches story, appealing to the masses the way any underdog might. Which isn’t always easy, she tells. “Being a top local runner can be brutal. You harbor the hopes of a community. The pressure is high and you end up answering a lot of well-intentioned but negligent questions when you have a poor race. So many people track your performances.” That’s the price inherent with speed, for better, for worse. She’s also first to admit that she was born with the God-given talent to run – fast. Still, it takes personal drive to capitalize on that talent. Maureen had it. One of few women who have qualified for four Olympic marathon trials, and a 2:32 PR at that distance, she recalls thirty mile runs around Lookout Mountain without any water. “Back then, we didn’t know a lot about hydration and nutrition. “Water? Who needs water?” She shrugs her shoulders and laughs, “a lot has changed since then.” What else has changed? “The racing scene has gone very international. The Russians weren’t here, neither were the Kenyans. There’s a lot more competition at the top – and it’s very deep.” She stops and looks at her son, Tyler, the youngest of her children. “That and this,” she says, reaching out to pat him on the back. Huge, huge smile.

HE LIVES TO RUN:

Dominic Martinez Knows the Pain of Not Being Able To Run, So Now He’s Not Wasting Any Time by Jessica Griffiths

Dominic practices running drills at Children’s Hospital in Denver while Jen Chudy, his physical therapist, offers advice.

T

o watch Dominic Martinez walk and run, you’d almost think he was just like any other 15-year-old. He runs with a stiff stride, but then most of us aren’t blessed with perfect form. It’s hard to believe that this Denver North sophomore has struggled for his life for the last three years. On Mother’s Day, 2002, Dominic was rushed to the hospital because of an aneurysm in his brain stem. One of his blood vessels burst and the excess blood and pressure caused him to go into a coma. In fact, Dominic spent the entire summer in that coma. When he woke up from the coma, Dominic was confined to a wheelchair.  He spent countless hours in therapy at Denver’s Children’s Hospital each week to try to improve his strength, balance and coordination. “My muscles were stiff. It was very painful. My legs felt stuck in place and it hurt when they did move.” 12 September/October 2004

Dominic had poor muscle control and bad balance, but his therapist says he worked through the pain with a determination that she’s never seen with any other patient. He eventually progressed to being able to walk with the aid of a walker. But that wasn’t enough for the young teen with a strong spirit. “He told me that he didn’t want to just sit around the house. He wanted to be able to get up and run around the block,” Dominic’s mother, Cynthia, remembers. But doctors warned Dominic to slow down. They were concerned that he was pushing himself too hard. “The odds were against me,” Dominic tells me, lost in his thoughts, but he says he fought against those odds and was able to walk on his own after a year and a half of struggle. “I remembered when standing was such a challenge for him... when everything was such a struggle,” Cynthia says, “so I was so happy to see him smiling again and laughing again.” Dominic wasn’t satisfied with just being able to walk on his own; he wanted to run.  He tripped and fell many times, but he always fought through the pain and kept trying. After spending his eighth grade school year stuck at home, Dominic was able to return to school for his freshman year of high school. “I was allowed to rejoin my class. My friends are amazed at what I can do,” he says with a smile. Dominic has also set an example for his neighbors. They watched him be carried home from the hospital on a stretcher and now they see him running. Some of the neighbors have started walking for exercise. “They say if I can do it, they can do it!” Now Dominic is able to run around the track at North High School. At first it was one lap. Then two. Now he can run 12 laps at a time. His best time is three miles in 20 minutes. And like most motivated runners, that’s not fast enough to please him. “I don’t want to be slow. I want to get a minute off my time.” He isn’t the most efficient, but he plugs along. He says he focuses on his form and keeping his legs loose. “It’s gradually getting easier.” Dominic has the goal of running on the cross country and track teams for his school. He follows a rigorous workout schedule to improve his strength and endurance, spending at least an hour a day on a stairmaster, cross country machine, or running. He also earns straight A’s in his classes and has plans to attend college. “He’s very disciplined,” his mother says with a grin. “He won’t drink soda or eat sweets. He doesn’t sit around playing video games like other kids his age.” She adds that Dominic wasn’t dedicated to a healthy diet before the aneurysm, but now he encourages her to eat healthier foods and tries to get his three brothers and four sisters to take a disciplined approach to exercising. When asked about his dedication, Dominic simply replies, “A bad diet will slow me down and I don’t need anything to slow me down.” On further reflection, he adds, “Before I was in the hospital, I didn’t have such a passion. I took a lot for granted. But now I know that you only get one life and this is my one body and I don’t want to take it for granted.” “Truly, truly amazing!” exclaims Jen Chudy, Dominic’s physical therapist, when asked to talk about him. “And, he’s done most of it on his own, out of his own will.  When we sent him home in July of 2002, I never would have imagined he would be running laps at the track two years later. I’ve never seen someone come this far. He is one of our miracle stories.” And when Dominic’s mother is asked if she thought he could do it, she replies, “I would watch him push past the pain. I knew he had what it took to get back up and keep trying.”

Going The Distance - FASTER! by Paul Kammermeier

How can you run your second marathon faster than your first? A common goal for many runners attempting a first marathon is to simply finish the race. Given the distance and the volume of training needed to build endurance, this goal is appropriate. Just getting to the starting line without injury is an accomplishment. The second or third marathon is different. You know you can do the distance, and you have the benefit of experience. But what will you do to improve? Here are a few tips to help you train. Start Your Training In Time To run a good marathon, you must allow adequate time for your body to develop the required endurance and speed. Each person will adapt and improve at her or his own pace, but six months is usually a good amount of time to allow. In addition, if you allow enough time you will not feel pressured to increase your mileage too quickly. Get To Know The Race Go to the website for your marathon. Find out what kind of surface you’ll be running on: Is it hilly or flat? Is it on concrete, gravel or asphalt? Factor this information into your training plan; you will want to spend enough time training on the same kind of surface so your body is used to it by race day. Another good idea is to find out what kind of food and drink they will have at the aid stations. Since you should never try anything new on race day, either make sure you train with the same foods they will have, or arrange to have your own. Train With A Plan All good training programs should follow a plan. The plan will help you to organize your training into a purposeful pursuit, rather than a haphazard one. It will also serve as a way to measure progress, if you include detailed notes of each workout. One vital aspect is that your plan should be malleable: if the plan calls 14 September/October 2004

for a tough workout and you know you are not fully recovered, then change the plan to an easier workout. If you ignore your body’s signals and blindly stick to a tough schedule, you could end up injured or overtrained. It’s much easier to rework your schedule than to go through rehab. Finally, every training bout should have a purpose. A good plan will help you outline the purpose of each bout, be it recovery, endurance, or speed work, thus helping you include the variation of training required to improve fitness. Build Up To Higher Mileage Perhaps in previous years you’ve gradually built up to one long run of three hours, or 20 miles. Having done one long run, did you have the endurance you wanted for the marathon? Some runners do just fine this way, others may benefit from focusing still more on building endurance by including more long runs. Remember to build your endurance gradually: just because you ran an 18-miler last week, doesn’t mean your body has fully adapted and recovered. Rather than run another 18-miler one week later, you may need to give yourself up to two weeks between long runs. Many athletes feel more comfortable having achieved two or three longer runs prior to a marathon. Also, most coaches recommend finishing your final long run three to five weeks prior to the race. If your long run falls too close to the marathon you risk not

being recovered. Train Consistently Consistency is a key aspect of a running program, and an essential precursor to building endurance. Inconsistent training will delay your improvement. In addition you may be tempted to make up for missed days by doing more training volume or intensity than you’re ready for, and this could make you prone to injury. Running consistently doesn’t mean you must run every day - it’s still a good idea to incorporate recovery days and cross-training. Train Like You Mean It Training seriously is more than just lots of running. It includes taking care of your body to optimize your adaptations to training. After a hard workout, you should allow sufficient time to recover before you push yourself again. Remember, it is during this recovery that your body adapts and gets stronger, so don’t cheat yourself out of it. The amount of recovery you need will depend on your fitness level and how taxing the training bout was. With some experience you will be able to tell how many days of recovery you need before you can take on another hard training session. Proper recovery also means you need a good night’s sleep. During the training season, discipline yourself so you are in bed in time to get a full 8-10 hours. (Individual needs vary.)

You might have to sacrifice some television or social life, but once the season is over you can burn the candle at both ends again. Next, take your nutrition knowledge a step further. Many runners are aware of the need for proper nutrition to help them grow stronger. You should know how many calories you need per day, as well as what portion should come from carbohydrates, fat and protein. You can give yourself a greater ergonomic edge by seeing a registered dietitian with knowledge in sports nutrition who can help you determine the best strategies for eating before a race or workout, fueling and hydration during, and, strategies to aid recovery and refueling. Another great adjunct to training is sports massage. It is a nice treat you can use to reward yourself for consistent training, and it can greatly aid your recovery. Oh yeah, massage also makes your legs feel good! The Taper Period This is the very important last phase of training, where your body gets a chance to recover from the training stimulus. In a nutshell, over the last ten to fourteen days you should drop the volume of your training, maintain the intensity, and follow sound nutrition practices. This will top off your muscle glycogen stores, give your muscles time to repair and lose soreness, and allow time for cells and enzymes within your muscles to adapt. The Night Before The Race You might be too nervous to fall asleep right away, but don’t worry. It is more important to be well-rested regularly, or at the very least for several nights leading up to the race. It’s also a good idea to not spend much time on your feet the day before. The Morning Of The Race What can you do at this late stage? Besides getting to the start in plenty of time, at least make sure you are adequately fueled and hydrated. Your experience from your long runs should help. Finish eating two to three hours before the start. Some runners’ strategy includes eating a small snack with about five minutes to go. If you do this, it should have been part of your training all along. You’ve heard the adage about not trying anything new on race day; it holds true here. The Race One thing: run even or negative splits. Respect the distance of the marathon, and pace yourself so that you have enough strength left to run the second half of the race faster than the first half, if only slightly. If you don’t believe me, try it the other way: Go out too fast for thirteen miles. Having run harder than you should have up to the half way point, do you think you can still run the second thirteen miles fast enough to finish in the time you want? Not likely. That is why nearly every marathon win and world record comes from running negative splits. Keep mental thoughts with negative splits, and you’ll run your best race. Have fun, and go fast!

Avoiding Injury

Ken Time by Dr. Ken Sheridan

A

fter fighting traffic for the past half hour, I finally reach the trailhead. The music on the car radio is drowned out by the “mental noise” in my head. I replay my four-year-old daughter whining all the way to school, my office manager requesting overdue reports (the worst part of a doctor’s job), and an assortment of patients talking about their new ailments for the week. My temper is so short I curse at my inability to unlatch the seatbelt, and another as my shoelace becomes knotted when I tighten my shoe.

It’s 7 p.m., the end of a long day at the end of a long week and I’ve been running on adrenaline for the past four hours. I’m not looking forward to this evening’s paperwork or tomorrow’s meeting with the running club – work, work, work. I look down at my watch and it’s now 7:10 p.m., damn, where did those ten minutes go? I set my chronograph and push start; I’m now on “Ken time”, which runs completely separate from the time anywhere else in the world. The trail starts with a gentle down slope which allows me to work out the kinks in my forty-year-old joints and get some blood flow in my leg muscles. My lungs start to complain as my heart rate starts to

Sheridan celebrates after the Runnin’ of the Green. 16

climb and I feel I’m still running on adrenaline and I’m not getting enough oxygen ANYWHERE in my body. Not a good time for the trail to start its ascent – WHY DIDN’T I JUST GO HOME??? After another few minutes, I begin to sweat, my joints are looser and I can start to feel my muscles become more flexible. My mind begins to wonder (obsess) about the new patients I saw earlier today: Is Lori going to ice like I told her? Is Jim going to stop his run at 45 minutes like I asked? Is Beth’s shoulder going to be ready for the triathlon on Sunday? Is my wife going to be upset that I won’t make it home until after 8 p.m. for the fourth time this week? Is my daughter still whining at that pitch that curls your toes (an amazing supernatural phenomenon)? Watch check: 15 minutes Ken time I’ve reached the switchbacks and I hunker down (aka slow down) to pace myself up the switchbacks. The goal for tonight is to finish them without stopping, even with the heat. I pay closer attention to my body and the rocks on the trail that continuously reach to trip me up and bring me down. Passing through turns three and four, I know the ascent levels off slightly and try to catch my breath. I’m half way up. My heart is pounding in my ears and my breathing begins to take center stage in my mind, quieting some of the noise in my head. Sweat coats the surface of my skin (I’m Italian, if we don’t sweat, we explode!). Of course Lori will ice, she wants to get better. Of course Rick won’t stop at 45 minutes, but imagine what he’ll think of his doctor when he goes 60 minutes without pain! Of course Beth will do her stretches and do fine in her race. Top of the switchbacks without stopping – Hooptey!! I gasp for breath as I continue on, thinking I’ll have enough time on Tuesday for those reports. Ken time: 30 minutes The sweat stings my eyes as the trail flattens out and my body moves along like a slow, oiled machine with 150 thousand miles on it. I look back on my day and appreciate the people I work with and how our patients take an active role in their health. The trail begins to descend – the big payoff! I lower my center of gravity and spread my arms for increased stability and “face-plant reduction” (a medical term). Game on! A stupid grin appears on my face as the trail continues its descent back to my car. It’s the same grin my daughter inherited that appears during our “Sunday Night Smack Down” ticklefests. Her laughter is pure magic. Ken time: 50 minutes Back at the car and STOP! My watch switches to 8 p.m. Friday night and the rest of the world comes rushing back to me. Its demands are the same, but I have bathed in my own sweat and become rejuvenated. I arrive home in time to greet my wife and tuck my daughter in for the night. My wife gives me an understanding (and sweaty) hug. After ten years of marriage she is well aware how much I need this time and how it makes me a better husband, father and doctor. I know that I’m not alone in this. In addition to the positive effects regular exercise has on preventing cardiovascular disease, it causes the release of endorphins and other natural opiates. These have been shown to increase sleep quality, reduce stress, increase creative thinking and reduce anxiety and depression. In addition, a threshold of 2,000 calories burned per week through exercise has been shown to promote healthier food choices. Exercise is good medicine; imagine if you could bottle it?

Amy Regnier followed in third place and was the first female masters finisher in 1:08:41, a solid 30 seconds faster than she ran last year to win the race overall. The run is the first leg of the Triple Crown of Running that includes the Summer Roundup Trail Run and the Pikes Peak Marathon and Ascent. The race was also selected as the RRCA Colorado 10 Mile State Championship. The Colorado Institute of Massage Therapy provided free post race massages to finishers, who came from as far as Vermont, Florida and Wisconsin to run the race.

In one of Colorado’s fastest races of the year, five runners averaged 4:48 pace and finished just two seconds apart in a nail biting, teeth grinding, breath taking finish at this year’s Stadium Stampede. Boulder’s 22-year-old Charles Kamindo leaned ahead of the pack to capture first place in 14 minutes, 53 seconds. The next three elites all finished in 14:54 with Lafayette’s Hiskia Tobies in second, Superior’s Scott Larson in third and Alamosa’s Jason Hubbard finishing in fourth. Kenya’s David Kirui rounded out the battle for the top five in 14: 55. Wow. Aurora’s Rob Welo finished tenth overall as the first master to cross the finish line in 16:41, followed by Brighton’s Fernando Herrera Lopez, 44, in 17:34. In the women’s race, Constantina Tomescu of Boulder ran away with the win in a blazing 16 minutes, 42 seconds, an average of 5:23 per mile pace. 24-year-old Zoila Gomez of Alamosa followed nearly a minute behind in 17:32 with Olympic 18 September/October 2004

Marathon Trials runner Katie Blackett in third in 17:58. Nikole Johns of Fort Collins placed fourth in 18:20 and Fraser’s Lynn Foutch, 39, just broke the 20 minute mark to finish fifth. 43-year-old Coreene Hanson of Erie captured the women’s masters title in 23:59 with Fort Collins’ Dawn Oglesby in second in 25:55. The race was held on the grounds of Invesco Field at Mile High with runners experiencing the thrill of running through the football field right before the finish. An elaborate post race celebration included Denver Broncos player autographs, Broncos cheerleaders, bungee jumping, face painting, clowns, music, massage and free food. In addition to the 5K Run and Walk, the 20th annual Stadium Stampede hosted a 1K Kids Fun Run, a 1K Huff and Puff Challenge for patients with lung disease, and a Broncos Mini Camp for Kids. This year’s race was the USATF 5K state championship, with the top five athletes earning prize money of $500, $400, $300, $200, and $100. The run benefited Saint Joseph Hospital Foundation and the Denver Broncos Charities Fund.

Hardrock Sees Record Number Of Finishers Full results at www.hardrock100.com

As if descending from the clouds, the runners come towards you. They have just descended from over 14,000 feet above sea level, running where air and footsteps come in short, measured amounts. These endurance runners test their perseverance along the course of the Hardrock Hundred Endurance Run, a 100 mile race held every July. As the sport of trail running has gained popularity and prestige, the Hardrock Hundred Endurance Run has carved out a niche for itself as the most demanding of the 100 mile runs. As finisher Doug McKeever says, “There are the other 100 milers and there is Hardrock.” The course links the history of Telluride, Ouray, Lake City and Silverton. These picturesque mountain towns stand as testaments to the spirit of men and women who chose to carve their lives out of the rocks and lofty crags, seeking their fame and fortune from minerals hidden in these mountains and valleys. It is in the spirit of this perseverance and dedication that the Hardrock Hundred is held every year. The course has over 33,000 feet of elevation gain and loss at an average elevation of over 11,000 feet above sea level, where breathing itself tests endurance. Conquering

this territory takes some time, continuing for two days straight. The run includes going above 12,000 feet thirteen times and summiting one of Colorado’s famed fourteeners, Handies Peak at 14,048 feet. All of this is done without the runners being able to stop and sleep through the night. Perfect weather and an experienced field helped the 2004 Hardrock Hundred produce a record number of finishers, with 80 finishers navigating the 101 miles of high altitude running to return to Silverton to kiss the Hardrock, the symbolic finish to this grueling endurance event. The first male finisher was Paul Sweeney from Lake Tahoe, CA. Paul, a first time Hardrock entrant, proved that patience and a steady pace would win out over the fast pace set by the early leaders. He overtook Gieselher Scneider (Traunstein, Germany) in the last 10 miles to capture the win. Women’s course record holder Betsy Kalmeyer of Steamboat Springs returned to her winning ways as she claimed her fourth victory in six finishes. Betsy’s time of 32:48:52 was good enough for fifth place overall. Ulli Kamm and Kirk Apt were recognized as having finished ten Hardrocks. Tyler Curiel, Roch Horton, Jim Ballard, Fick Curtis, and Kerry Collings were all recognized for their fifth Hardrock finishes.

Stacey Chaston wins the 5K. Alex Hoag Run for Sunshine July 17, 2004 Colorado Springs, CO 197 Finishers by Aaron Sever

new course record was set at this year’s Alex Hoag Run, which is now in its fourth year. Justin Chaston won for the second year in a row and improved his course record by 18 seconds. This was his first race in the U.S. after qualifying for his third Olympics in his native Great Britain the previous week. Adolfo Carrillo and Sam Ngatia set a quick pace early on, but Chaston pulled away just before the first mile marker and never looked back. Fifty-year-old John Victoria from Wyoming also had an impressive race, finishing 8th overall and setting a new age group record with a time of 17:44. On the women’s side, Stacey Chaston continued her dominance of Colorado Springs 5K road racing, cruising to an

easy victory with a time of 18: 29. Stacey ran within five seconds of her course record set in 2003, and was still able to finish second overall the following day in the Barr Trail Mountain Race. Stacey currently stands in first place in the Open Female division of the Colorado Runner Racing Series. Sheila Geere finished second with a time of 19:13 and Emily Hanenburg finished third at 20:36, both women setting course age group records in the process. Minnette Emmel also set a new female age group record in the 6069 year old division. The run raised over $13,000 for the Proteus Syndrome Foundation. Alex lost his life to proteus syndrome when he was nine years old. His family started the run in his memory. There was a

live band, karate demo’s, a 5K fun walk and a children’s sunshine run. This year’s event had beautiful, cool weather. Timing went smooth as silk preformed by the PPRR’s. There was lots of cheering from the people left at the park and the neighbors along the race route who sat out in their lawn chairs to check it all out. The 2004 race also brought back the team competition that originated last year. Eight coed teams competed for the awards handed out to the top three teams with the lowest overall times. Runners for the Runner’s Roost Rhinos, Titan Thunder, and Stellent Striders all earned team trophies and gift certificates for their efforts. For Alex Hoag 5K race results, turn to page 53.

Sunny skies and chilly temperatures greeted runners as they lined up at Vail’s Mountain Haus. The 7.5-mile race began at an elevation of 8,150’ as runners sprinted across a mile of pavement before beginning their traverse up Vail Mountain on the dirt service roads. Runners were able to enjoy views of the Gore Range on the climb. After about four miles of climbing, there was a surprise flat to downhill section that allowed

Lisa Isom, 32, finished second in 59:49 and Kelly Ryan, 35, was third. Boulder’s Andy Ames was the first male masters finisher in 49:57 and Kari Distefano of Telluride was the first female masters finisher in 1:04:33.

In the masters competition, the top 15 men and women will be scored (for runners 40-49). Points will be given to the top 10 finishers in the grand masters competition (runners aged 50-59). Points will be given to the top 5 men and women in the senior division (runners 60 and over). Runners may participate in as many races as they choose but only their best 7 races will count towards scoring (or any number of races up to 7).

Hit the Dirt... Trail Review

Morning Thunder Trail Breckenridge, Colorado

W

by Derek Griffiths

hen you need to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, Summit County is the perfect escape. There are dozens of breathtaking trails to choose from, but I’ve chosen one easy and accessible trail to tell you about. The trail begins near downtown Breckenridge and has incredible views of the ski runs and the town. The course also has a fairly easy running surface, although watch for rocks and tree roots. For a fun three-mile run, start at the Morning Thunder trailhead. Follow the dirt singletrack up a short hill and to the right. The path is fairly flat and follows a canopy of Aspen trees. At the marked sign, follow the Pence Miller trail to the right. You’ll get a beautiful view of the town of Breckenridge with the majestic mountain peaks rising in the backdrop. Turn right at the Shock Hill trail sign. Although there isn’t much grass to keep you from straying from the trail, the path is outlined with tree limbs so runners and cyclists keep erosion of the habitat at a minimum. The highlight of the run is the sweeping views of the ski slopes of Breckenridge. Wildlife is abundant in this area, so there are signs to remind you to keep your dog on the marked path. You’ll also run by a small pond and quaint cabin. Shortly after you pass the cabin, turn left off of the Shock Hill trail and onto Cucumber Gulch. You’ll run through The trail is narrow, but fairly smooth to run.

The ski runs will make you wish for winter.

a few houses and cross a large pedestrian bridge. After the bridge, follow the Pence Miller trail sign, then turn left onto the Morning Thunder trail to return to the start. This is a short run, but there are many ways to lengthen the run by exploring the trails beyond Shock Hill. You can pick up free Summit County hiking and biking trail maps at Great Adventure Sports, which is located at 400 North Park Avenue in the City Market shopping area. Bikers are allowed on the trail, and you’re allowed to bring your dog. In the winter, this trail is marked as a snowshoe path. To get there, follow State Route 9 into Breckenridge. Turn right onto Park Avenue, then right onto Mountain Thunder Drive. You can park on the side of the road by the trailhead or park in the public lot on Park Avenue.

You have great views of Breckenridge from the path.

You’ll run by a quaint cabin and small pond.

The Lighter Side

You Might Be A Triathlete If... 1. You have trouble keeping lunch under 2,000 calories. 2. You usually wake up at four in the morning but don’t get to work until after nine. 3. You have a $4,000 bike strapped to the roof of a $2,000 car. 4. You’re always wet! Either sweat, pool water, bath water or it’s raining during your ride! 5. You know you could make a killing at Jeopardy if only the categories were: past winners of Hawaii Ironman, leg shaving techniques, the aerodynamics of racing wheels and gastrointestinal problems during long runs. 6. You return from vacation more exhausted than when you left. 7. You haven’t bought new work clothes in two years but you own running and bike shorts by every manufacturer under the sun. Photos by Dean Guernsey

8. Your car has at least one energy bar wrapper and two spare sets of work out clothes. 9. You ask your sister and your girlfriends for shaving advice. 10. You start the day with a protein shake, have a latte and muffin after the commute, then head out with your coworkers for a midmorning bagel and cream cheese snack. 11. Somebody hands you a cup of water and you have to restrain from pouring it over your head. 12. Your laundry continually smells like someone locked the cat in overnight. 13. You are tempted to do your long bike ride in a speedo so you don’t have a tan line at your next race. 14. Your breakfast consists of enough bagels that the bagel guy hands you a freezer bag with your order. 15. You leave the house in the morning with a swim bag on one shoulder, bike on the other, a change of clothes in another bag and your running stuff in another in case you can squeeze in a run on your lunch hour. 16. You bring a water bottle to the party so you’re properly hydrated for the next morning’s long run. 17. You show up at the neighborhood pool on your bike in a speedo and embarrass your teenage daughters. 18. You wear your bathing suit under your work

clothes to make a fast transition from work to swim on your lunch hour. 19. You forget that talking about mileage, long slow distance and speed bores your coworkers. 20. You feel like you took the day off because all you did was swim 3,000 yards. 30 September/October 2004
