Defn: a human male displaying evidence of devolution - exhibits distinctive "caveman-like" tendencies. This man often dribbles in public places; cannot drink a beverage without spilling it on himself, the floor or someone else; may also run into objects like lampposts & bushes; has a definite "sloopish & short legged" running style that is slow and low to the ground, often resulting in the dragging of knuckles.

These throwback neanderthals, along with their questionable diet, should clearly be avoided.

(Thirty) Six degrees of (Kevin) Frozen Bacon

So Tuesday was an adventurous Spring weather day in Colorado Springs.  Snow, Rain, Sun and of course - wind.
Soccer practice for the first born was relocated to El Pomar - started at 6:30.  So, I had time to get 6 miles in - off I went and experienced the following 6 degrees or 6 somethings.
1) 6 Soccer Moms doing double takes as I ran through the parking lot wearing a hat, gloves, layers on top - but wearing shorts in....
2) 36 degrees
3) Ran the first 3 miles at 8:26 pace - into wind / rain / sleet / snow.
4) Ran the last 3 miles at 8:06 pace - so, avg for 6 miles was 8:16.  Total time = 59:36.  Felt good considering the 20 miler on Sunday.
5) Ran by 6 (okay 4) well bundled Kenyans (The elite athlete group from Ft. Carson?) on the way back - they were heading the other way.
6) Got back to the car and the rain / snow / wind had died down and I could see the top of the Peak - which lead to Pikes Peak Bacon
