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.

Hi Dr Jones, I'm your new patient

I took a visit last week to my family doc, she then referred me to an orthopedic surgeon - regarding my right knee.

X-rays and scans this morning, diagnosis: torn medial meniscus.

Arthroscopic Knee Surgery in 3 weeks.

Lets review the race schedule for the rest of the year....

* Summer Roundup 12K
* Barr Trail Mtn Race
* Pikes Peak Ascent - highly unlikely - 5 weeks after the scope.



  1. Sorry to hear this Craig - what a bummer! Talk about buzz kill for your summer.... I will take extra pictures so you can run trails vicariously through our blog, if that helps ;-)

  2. I'm pretty bummed about it, I will gladly live vicariously thru your blog and pictures, thanks. Ice Cream seems like good medicine too.

  3. Awwwww ... crap man. Hope I still get to me you via your kin's efforts at BTMR.

    I guess that marathon and the GOTG put the screws to it?

  4. I'll be there, maybe on 1 leg - but I ain't gonna miss it.
