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.

Waldo Canyon Winter Run & Photos

Had been a while since I: 
A) Ran like a tourist (taking photos of what's between Point A and B - instead of just getting from Point A to Point B).
B) Ran in Waldo Canyon
C) Ran in (lightly falling) snow and 20 degree temps.

So, I did all 3 yesterday afternoon.  Waldo Canyon is not my favorite place to run - mostly due to being a decent drive from my house.  But add a little snow to pretty it up, taking away all but only 1 other person and her dog on the trails - it was a fun little 75+ minute adventure. 

A friendly 1300 ft elevation gain over 7 miles.   Snow was light and sporadic.  Mostly just a dusting everywhere.  A few spots where it was a little slick - wore the Yaktraks moreso for the downhill, shaded, slick spots.  Here's some pics.....


  1. Waldo with only one other person? That is a novel concept... It looks like a great run, especially with the light snow falling. How bad is the ice up there?

    Good luck to you and #12 tomorrow!

  2. It was a little slick in a few places - mostly where the sun doesn't get into - notably in the creek / valley on the West side of the loop.

    Thanks. Looking forward to tomorrow :)
