We love our community and can't thank you enough for the continued support of this publication.

Nikon D800 - This camera is a resolution monster that does extremely well in low-light without breaking the bank. It’s also light enough and small enough to carry while cycling, climbing and running—so as long as you have the proper bag for it.

Who Are You?

You could say Neely Spence Gracey was born with the fate to run the Boston Marathon. Gracey was born on Marathon Monday in 1990, and 26 years later she was the first American woman to finish the 120th Boston Marathon at 2:35:00.


Where did you grow up? As a kid, my family moved every few years, so I grew up a bit of a gypsy. We moved from Connecticut to Tokyo to New York, and to Texas three separate times. Thankfully the accent never stuck. When I came to Boulder to go to college in 1986, I knew I was home. I…
