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.

Easing back into it

First run this morning since Saturday's marathon.  I did do 10 miles on the Stationary bike on Tuesday and have been feeling like I could start back up running again over the last couple of days.  So, 4 miles at a super slow pace around the neighborhood - which is dirt roads, mix of hills and flat.  Felt okay, certainly feeling the effects of last Saturday still.  Will likely do 6 miles tomorrow evening, probably on Spruce Mtn which is becoming a favorite place to run.

Saw this news story yesterday.   Poor guy became a human balloon.  Wonder if when he pees now, he pees bubbles.

Need to buy some new trail kicks.  The trusty Brooks Adrenaline's (I think that is what they are) have a inch long hole / tear on the side, near the bottom of the big toe - think that happened at the Greenland Trail 25K.   Some reading and research the next few days.  Any biased or non-biased input I'll gladly take. 
The leader in the clubhouse so far


  1. Good tread on those shoes. Built in gaiter too.

  2. Don't know much that can top that boot... Since you noted Brooks Adrenaline, I am assuming you need some pronation support? Pearl Izumi SyncroFuel XC and Montrail Mountain Masochist are a couple good trail kicks with some support and lighter weight.
