It brought tears to the eyes of some and whether or not you’re an emotional person, all were touched by the outcome of the professional men’s race. Some witnesses are saying it was the most memorable and sportsmanlike finish the Bolder Boulder has ever seen.

But what’s so special about the outcome is the three friends who crossed the finish line abreast and holding hands. Lelisa Desisa, Tilahun Regassa and Tadese Tola (friends from Ethiopia) made it difficult for officials to declare a winner as they were linked together through the finish.

One of my favorite things to do is take a hike. Weather it is a short afternoon trip or a long challenging trail that takes me to isolated alpine lakes over a few days, hiking gives more than it takes. In Boulder Colorado there are plenty of trails to choose from and a variety of degrees of difficulty amongst those trails. You can jog up the red rocks trail and take a look east over our beautiful city. Or you can drive a bit north and start at 4 a.m. to conquer Pikes Peak. Trust me, you will need a bit or training for that one. If you enjoy the outdoors, are looking to get in shape, or just need to blow off some steam than take a hike. Read the rest of this entry »
