Davita 9K Sprint Challenge


Hello Runners !!!

The inaugural Davita 9 K was underway right on schedule last Sunday , 9/25/13 amidst a hubbub of activity as the USA PRO Challenge  was putting the finishing touches on the  Stage 7 Start/Finish.

The cool thing about this event 1)  Its most likely the only 9K going, and 2) It uses the same course as the USA Pro Challenge  cyclists will be using in about three hours.

The conditions were spot on for some quick times for the 125 athletes , and Peter’s team to tare down the course after the event to avoid being bulldozed by the PRO Challenge team cars to follow (I don’t think Peter can run that fast, you would have to  be a Cheetah) .

By hooking the morning run and afternoon PRO Challenge together you automatically get a hall pass to dig into and enjoy some of Denver’s finest dining experiences on a beautiful Sunday afternoon, think about it :)

Till next time  Flick-

Polar Bear 5K

No polar bears today!!!

The pre-start air was crisp and the Denver sky cloud free, visibility unlimited as the participants gathered for the 2013 Polar Bear 5K the second event in the Run Denver series.  Its been a while since the Rudolph Ramble in December, however the pace will quicken (no pun intended) going forward.   A matter a fact the Super Bowl  & Valentine’s Day 5K  are back-to-back :)

Some nice shots today, take a look around, don’t be shy come out and have fun.

Also, lets keep Potts and Creigh in our thoughts and prayers as they focus on their recovery.

Till the Super Bowl 5K – Flick.                       Click here for more photos.

Commitment Day 5K Denver 1/1/2013


January 1, 2013

Happy New Year !!!!

What a  start for  the 1600-1700 Commitment Day participants.  The morning was a tad nippy, however right on par for January type conditions.   Judging by the high concentration of smiles and acrobatics, the Denver contingent demonstrated their resiliency and determination to start 2013 off on the right foot, or left .

Hope to see you all out and about this year, and I know, Denver has an event for every level of athletic ability, so why not give it a try.

2012 Rudolph Ramble – City Park – Denver Colorado

We’re Off to the Races !!!!

The 2012 Rudolph Ramble was dedicated in part to Creigh Kelley as the Denver running community wishes him a speedy recovery from the recently diagnosed kidney cancer.

Ladies and Gentleman Boys and Girls !!! Its official – The Run Denver series is off and running for 2012/2013 season. It felt more like spring with temps hovering about 50 degrees at the gun. The young, young-at-heart, and the Canadian’s The Canadian Geese flock that is, all were on hand to kick off the Run Denver series of 5Ks, culminating with the Dam Run on March 3, 2013 with the 1/2 Marathon and 5K combo, sort of a “Happy Family” a little something for everyone.

We have a great community, have a great time, have fun and stay healthy.

Till Next Time – Flick

Tri – Glenwood Springs Triathlon 2012



WOW,  Its crazy, you don’t need to schedule these events, they just seem to pop up. Kim  and I were celebrating our 24 wedding anniversary at the famed Glenwood Springs hotel when we were enjoying an early afternoon tapas treat at the Pullmans bar when the pleasant couple jut two stools down had to turn in because they were going to participate in the Tri-Glenwood Springs Triathlon.  Mr cool responds with, “where’s  the swim take place?” what a blunder that was, In the only pool  in town, seven laps in the hot springs meets the requirement, and only a few yards from our baloney. What was I thinking !!!.

Anyway –  I thought  I was to meet  bib 192 @ 6:30ish and  maybe capture some picks of 192 and her husband.  I staked myself out in the transmission area by the bike rack with the 190′s, bib 192 was a no-show. Well, the morning moved on and I snapped a few picks of participants  coming and going. Great day and a wonderfull weekend !!
