About me

I'm the site manager and editor of PikesPeakSports.us, the digital stomping ground for the outdoor community.
I've lived in the area since 1967, back in the day when our family milked cows for a living on a dairy farm near Calhan.
Graduated from the University of Southern Colorado (now Colorado State-Pueblo) in 1982. Worked at The Gazette for many years, first as a sports writer, then helped launch the Gazette's citizen journalism and social media projects.
I've written a lot of words and I've loved and fretted over all of them.
I'm fascinated by the online world we live in, social media and the changes that are sure to come.
I'm low maintenance ... sort of. Just give me my drawing stuff and painting easel, brushes and oils, my fly-fishing rod, mountain bike, trail-running shoes, Tom Petty on the iPod, a piece of dirt for my garden, my guitar, my beautiful wife and daughter, and a good cup of coffee ... you'll get no trouble out of me.

Thank you Tim, we were just glad to be done! We were happy for Brandon, too. I don't mind at all if you copy that.
Take Care, Katie

Agreed! It's awe-inspiring!

This race will benefit two local land trusts (San Isabel Land Protection Trust and Palmer Land Trust) that are dedicated to this wild and working landscape as well will benefit the Tarahumara Indians from Copper Canyon Mexico.

We appreciate any support to help us spread the word!

Tim, let me know if there is a biking (road or mountain) race anytime soon. I need practice shooting cyclists.

I'm coordinating the ADT Marathon / Half Marathon Expo and I'm thinking it would be good for you to have a table there to publicize the Super Half. The Expo is on Sunday September 2 from noon until 6PM in the Antlers Hotel, where the 1200 runners will pickup their race packets. 


We have room for 30 exhibitors. Is that something you're interested in staffing? Let me know.

Are you an "Ordinary Mortal?" If you are contemplating the possible triathlon adventure, a beginner in triathlon competition, an experienced triathlon participant, or anywhere in between...this is the event for you!
The Ordinary Mortals Triathlon was a successful annual Pueblo happening 20 years ago, with a fabulous  run. Following a recent  hiatus, community members in conjunction with Colorado State University-Pueblo Student Recreation Center and the EXHPR Managing Sports Programs class are reviving the event and adding not only an adult Duathlon to the mix, but a Mini-Mortals triathlon for kids! The triathlon will be run in a reversed, modified order, with the duathlon proceeding in a run-bike-run. The competitions will be chip timed, with awards for the top adult racers and mini participants in all age categories.  This is a USAT sanctioned event. 
Join us Sunday, April 15th on the Colorado State University-Pueblo campus in Pueblo, Colorado for a 9 a.m. adult race start to give either a Triathlon or Duathlon experience your best effort! 

Visit our website at www.ordinary-mortals.org for more information, and to register for this exciting venture!

Cash donations great way to help Black Forest Fire first responders, volunteers and those who lost everything

Doing some homework on ways to donate and contribute to the Black Forest Fire victims, first responders and volunteers.

First a quick digression: Did you ever slide cash into somebody's birthday card and mail it to them? It never felt right to me, as if I didn't take the time to consider the person, or…

The Oklahoma Road Trip report: Shoes delivered ... thanks, Colorado Springs!

I rolled down the window and cranked up the Rock ‘n’ Roll at 3:15 a.m. as Shawn Finley and I blasted out of Colorado Springs on Saturday morning.

Our destination: Moore, Okla., a green, tree-filled city raked by a killer tornado on May 20.

I pulled a U-Haul trailer full of new and used running shoes,…
