Life: Health Sun, Sep 7, 2014 - 4:22 PM

Sunday morning in Garden of the Gods was filled with dancing, coconut bras, feather boas and more hot pink tulle than an '80s wedding. More than 5,000 people - three miles worth of racers clad in pink - stood together...

  • Show Me The Ride: Cyclists, runners to help honor our heroes

    The professionals ride our hills and remark about how impossible they are. The replay shows a hidden effort but a speed that's much more obvious. I once went as fast. In curiosity, I had just stirred the beehive in Palmer Park and raced away on my bike at the exact rate of speed I had in mind when I bought it. It led to a crash so bad I...

  • On the Run: Cause of dreaded side stitch remains unclear

    Have you ever encountered a sharp, stabbing pain in your side while running? Recently, one of my cross-
country runners suffered through that experience. When she asked me what to do, I began to wonder about the dreaded side stitch. It's a pain on the side of the torso, at the bottom of the rib cage, that might feel like a cramp and that some...

  • Mario Macias passes Charles Hillig late, wins ADT Marathon

    Sometimes the life of a runner can include a very promising start blighted at the very end. So many miles, poised, and well in front of the pack - then cramped up after falling way behind. That was Charles Hillig's Monday morning at the American Discovery Trail Marathon. The 28-year-old was passed on the 15th mile by Boulder Running...

  • Aspen planning 12-hour uphill endurance race

    ASPEN — Aspen Mountain is set to host a new kind of endurance race next month — to see how many times endurance runners can run up the mountain in 12 hours. The race is a quirky successor to the former 24 Hours of Aspen. That was a downhill skiing endurance event canceled in 2004. Instead of competing to complete downhill laps, contestants...

  • Blog: I Dirty Dashed and lived

    I did it. I survived a three mile run with obstacles in the mud. And now I want more, more, I tell you! I can see how those races get addictive. Saturday morning, instead of trotting off to teach a vinyasa yoga class at CorePower Yoga, I cruised down the interstate with my bestie from high school to the Pikes Peak International Raceway. We...

  • Runners sneak in final treks on the Manitou Incline before repairs

    As the president of the Christian and Missionary Alliance in Colorado Springs, John Stumbo challenged his employees to tackle the notorious Manitou Incline at least once before it closed for repairs. Stumbo took up the challenge himself Monday morning - starting 11 minutes before the 6 a.m. cut off. "I'm the boss, so I thought I'd better do...

  • Ramsey: Matt Carpenter has new routine for Pikes Peak Marathon

    Matt Carpenter won the Pikes Peak Marathon 12 times and the Ascent six times. He spent Sunday working a few blocks from the finish line at Colorado Custard Company, which he owns. “It was a beautiful day out there to run,” he said late in the morning as he handed a chocolate cone to a customer. But he did not run on this beautiful day. Used to...

  • Ramsey: Swiss dentist Marc Lauenstein rules America's Mountain, wins Pikes Peak Marathon

    Marc Lauenstein works as a dentist in Switzerland, where he spends his days examining decay. His profession can be depressing. It's not easy to tell someone drills and shots and pain lurk in the near future. But he always takes a long break from his labor. He puts on his running shorts and shoes and sprints out the door of his home or office....
