It is going to be like any other Bachelorette party. A girl’s trip to Las Vegas the Grand Canyon for wild partying 46 miles of running, fueled by mojitos and sushi salt pills and packets of gel, ending at 2 am starting at 2 am. Cody and Sabina are not your average bridesmaids, Kara Henry […]
Brenda Carawan is not your typical runner. But then again, most people who thrive in races that average 100 miles on the road, are not your every day runner. The Texas native, who has a 100-mile PR of 16:33, has had top finishes at the Spartathlon Ultra Race (153 miles) in Greece and California’s Badwater […]

This past weekend Team Newton joined in the ranks riding in the Courage Classic. The Courage Classic is a cycling event that supports Children’s Hospital Colorado, which is consistently one of the top five pediatric hospitals in the country with its foundation in four key pillars; treatment, research, bench to bedside (applying the research to […]
32 years of running marathons, I thought it was time for a change of pace and living in Colorado I turned to the trails and discovered I like ultra running. This past weekend I did the North Fork 50, only my 6th ultra, but with a plan in mind. That plan is to try the […]
