    There was roughly 200 meters to the finish, and Woody Kincaid was nowhere near the front of the pack. But the 2011 Columbine High graduate kicked it up another notch and gradually closed the gap on Galen Rupp. Yes, that Galen Rupp, the silver medalist in the 10,000 at the 2012 Olympic games.

    At an open house Thursday night at the Indian Hills Community Center, Open Space representatives said the trailhead’s current challenges include the lower parking lot, which requires visitors to walk up the road to the trailhead; a kiosk that is not centrally located; an outdated restroom; and excessive after-hours use.
