See You Out There

By Craig Holloway   |   Feb 9, 2015 February 9, 2015

When I lived in Chicago I ran like there was no tomorrow. Sundays had me running long steady miles, Mondays were a set up for double-down Tuesdays, and Wednesday’s leg screaming repeats on the University of Illinois’s Circle Campus track provided the week’s endorphin highlight. A friend whom I… Read More

I Dream of Running

By Greta Hyland   |   Dec 19, 2014 December 19, 2014

By Greta Hyland I dream of running, not figuratively but literally. In my dreams it is effortless, exhilarating. When I wake from these dreams I feel pumped and want to jump out of bed and run—there have been times at night when I have. For a while, running was… Read More

They have a number of preserves scattered across the valley and the Valley View Preserve was their newest one. OVLC volunteers had already… Read More

Winter Running

By Rhonda Claridge   |   Jan 31, 2014 January 31, 2014

From my house, at 9,800 feet elevation in the Colorado Rockies, I have to run downhill first. Above is sealed under feet of unrunnable, soft, post-holing snow. So it’s downhill, passing beneath nine avalanche slidepaths on a snow-packed road, often in a howling, pushy wind that streams old snow… Read More

Running With My Devils

Running With My Devils

By Steve Graepel   |   Jun 11, 2013 June 11, 2013

I remember running the 50K and getting off course but fighting back into third place, and I remember that it was hot… hotter than hell. And then… and then nothing… I don’t remember collapsing. I have no memories of kicking off good-Samaritan runners who pinned me down to the… Read More
