  • Denver runner in Cruz control at Mt. Falcon 15k

    MORRISON — From the start, Lonnie Cruz was focused on what was directly in front of him. The stunning scenery of nearby Red Rocks Amphitheatre and its surroundings couldn’t faze the 30-year-old Denver runner. Neither could the building heat as the race wore on.
